Top ranked Hyundai-TSU (3-2) recorded its second loss in Tbilisi on Tuesday night. Hosts were edged by fifth ranked Tskaltubo (2-3) 80-78. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Hyundai-TSU. The guests trailed by 12 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 2 points. Tskaltubo forced 19 Hyundai-TSU turnovers. 24 personal fouls committed by Hyundai-TSU helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was American forward Travante Williams (197-93, college: Alaska-Fairb., agency: Duran International) who scored 23 points and 8 rebounds. Uzbekistani center Dmitry Sviridov (212-85) chipped in 12 points and 14 rebounds. American point guard Christopher Anderson (170-92, college: San Diego) produced 21 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for the hosts. Hyundai-TSU's coach Nikoloz Cherkezishvili rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Tskaltubo maintains fifth place with 2-3 record. Hyundai-TSU at the other side dropped to the second position with two games lost. They share it with Arena-76 and BC Titebi. Tskaltubo are looking forward to face higher ranked BC Titebi (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hyundai-TSU's supporters also look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi SEU Tbilisi.
Important game to mention about took place in Tbilisi. Fourth ranked Arena-76 (3-2) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging 3rd placed BC Titebi (3-2) 70-67 in the game for the second place. American power forward Peter Alexis (213-92, college: Philadelphia) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 15 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Konstantine Bitsadze contributed with 20 points for the winners. American forward Armani Flannigan (203-92, college: N.Texas) answered with 20 points and 8 rebounds for BC Titebi. Arena-76 moved-up to second place, which they share with Hyundai-TSU and BC Titebi. Arena-76 will play against league's leader DELTA in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. BC Titebi will play against Tskaltubo and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked SEU Tbilisi (0-5) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 93-72 loss to second ranked DELTA (4-1) in Tbilisi on Tuesday evening. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. Levan Eliadze stepped up and scored 25 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Jamal Wilson responded with 21 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. DELTA keeps a position of league leader. Loser SEU Tbilisi still closes the standings with five games lost. DELTA will meet at home Arena-76 (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. SEU Tbilisi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena Hyundai-TSU.
