The Regular Season in Superleague is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds.

The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Olimpi (#7) and Mgzavrebi (#8). Mgzavrebi was defeated at home 73-79 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Mgzavrebi. The guests trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 26-12 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Olimpi forced 27 Mgzavrebi turnovers. The best player for the winners was American guard Nick Schlitzer (198-92, college: Philadelphia) who scored 20 points and 6 rebounds. The former international guard Revaz Rogava (191-93) chipped in 21 points and 4 steals. Olimpi's coach Leonid Ivatin used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American point guard Corey Allen (185-92, college: S.Florida) produced 25 points for the hosts. Olimpi maintains seventh place with 5-11 record. Mgzavrebi at the other side stay at the bottom position with 14 games lost.

Another exciting game was again a derby between two teams from Tbilisi: Dinamo Tbilisi (#1) and Sokhumi (#4). Sokhumi was crushed at home by 18 points 86-104 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. The former international Mikheil Berishvili (204-87) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists. Nikola Maravic contributed with 18 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. American guard Dwayne Lathan (190-89, college: Indiana St.) answered with 20 points and 5 assists for Sokhumi.
