The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Mgzavrebi (#8) and Cactus Tbilisi (#5). Cactus Tbilisi was defeated at home 67-78 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. The game was mostly controlled by Mgzavrebi. Cactus Tbilisi managed to win second period 15-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Mgzavrebi dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Cactus Tbilisi's 30. Mgzavrebi forced 30 Cactus Tbilisi turnovers. Strangely Cactus Tbilisi outrebounded Mgzavrebi 46-33 including a 21-8 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Americans were the main players on the court. Worth to mention a great performance of point guard Kaheem Ransom (185, college: Sam Houston St.) who helped to win the game recording 16 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals and point guard Corey Allen (185-92, college: S.Florida) who added 19 points and 6 steals during the contest. At the losing side guard Terik Bridgeman (198, college: William Pater.) responded with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 19 rebounds. Mgzavrebi maintains eighth position with 3-13 record. Cactus Tbilisi at the other side keeps the fifth place with ten games lost. They share the position with Batumi. Mgzavrebi's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi Olimpi.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Kutaisi. Second ranked host Kutaisi (12-3) defeated 4th ranked Sokhumi (7-9) 75-60. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sokhumi.

Even a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds by American guard Dwayne Lathan (190-89, college: Indiana St.) did not help to save the game for Sokhumi. Defending champion maintains second position with 12-3 record having five points less than leader Dinamo Tbilisi. Sokhumi at the other side keeps the fourth place with nine games lost. Kutaisi will play against Energy Invest (#3) in Rustavi in the next round, which may be the game of the day.

Energy Invest maintains third position with 9-7 record having seven points less than leader Dinamo Tbilisi. Olimpi at the other side keeps the seventh place with 11 games lost.
