Tre Burnette
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in Superleague. Coincidentally all hosts won their games.

The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Olimpi (#7) and Cactus Tbilisi (#4). Olimpi (6-13) smashed visiting Cactus Tbilisi (8-12) by 44 points 90-46. The game without a history. Olimpi led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Cactus Tbilisi to just 5 points in fourth quarter. Olimpi held Cactus Tbilisi to an opponent 21.9 percent shooting from the field compared to 49.4 percent accuracy of the winners. Olimpi forced 19 Cactus Tbilisi turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. The best player for the winners was American guard Tre Burnette (196, college: S.Dakota) who scored 21 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). The former international guard Revaz Rogava (191-93) chipped in 16 points and 8 rebounds. American guard Terik Bridgeman (198, college: William Pater.) produced 12 points and 7 rebounds for the guests. Cactus Tbilisi's coach Archil Jgenti gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Olimpi maintains seventh position with 6-13 record. Cactus Tbilisi at the other side dropped to the fifth place with 12 games lost. Olimpi are looking forward to face higher ranked Batumi (#6) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Cactus Tbilisi will play against Energy Invest and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Kutaisi (14-5) against eighth ranked Mgzavrebi (5-15) on Sunday night. Visiting Kutaisi was defeated by Mgzavrebi in Tbilisi 88-75. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Kutaisi.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Tbilisi. First ranked Dinamo Tbilisi faced 3rd ranked Energy Invest. Host Dinamo Tbilisi (19-1) smashed guests from Rustavi (11-9) 87-62. Worth to mention a great performance of Deonta Vaughn who helped to win the game recording 18 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Charlie Lee responded with 7 points and 10 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Dinamo Tbilisi maintains first position with 19-1 record.
