The game between Top Four teams took place in Berlin. 3rd placed host ALBA Berlin (10-4) lost to third ranked EWE Baskets (11-5) 89-81. They made 19-of-22 free shots (86.4 percent) during the game. EWE Baskets shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 60.9 percentage. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a great evening for guard Rickey Paulding (196-82, college: Missouri, agency: Pro One Sports) who led his team to a victory scoring 27 points. Forward Ronnie Burrell (204-83, college: NC-Greensboro, agency: Pro One Sports) helped adding 15 points and 6 rebounds. EWE Baskets' coach Sebastian Machowski used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was forward Deon Thompson (203-88, college: N.Carolina) with 19 points and 7 rebounds. EWE Baskets moved-up to second place. ALBA Berlin at the other side keeps the third position with four games lost. EWE Baskets are looking forward to face LTi 46ers (#17) in Giessen in the next round which should be an easy win for them. ALBA Berlin will play on the road against BBC Bayreuth (#14) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Bonn. Eleventh ranked Walter Tigers (7-8) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 15th ranked Telekom Baskets (5-9) 96-94 on Thursday evening. It was an exceptional evening for American forward Tyrone Nash (203-88, college: Notre Dame) who led the winners and scored 20 points and 6 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Johannes Lischka accounted for 15 points and 8 rebounds. American point guard Jared Jordan (188-84, college: Marist) came up with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 11 assists for Telekom Baskets in the defeat. Walter Tigers moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Phoenix Hagen. Telekom Baskets lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fifteenth position with nine games lost. Walter Tigers will play against higher ranked ratiopharm Ulm (#4) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Telekom Baskets will play against Phoenix Hagen (#10) and hope to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game took place in Frankfurt where 13th ranked BBC Bayreuth (6-9) was upset on the court of sixteenth ranked Deutsche Bank Skyliners (5-10) 76-59 on Wednesday. The best player for the winners was Zachery Peacock who scored 13 points and 8 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Joe Trapani who recorded a double-double by scoring 16 points and 10 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Deutsche Bank Skyliners maintains sixteenth place with 5-10 record. BBC Bayreuth lost sixth consecutive game. They dropped to the twelfth position with nine games lost. They share it with NY Phantoms and MBC. Deutsche Bank Skyliners will meet at home higher ranked Bayern Muenchen (#6) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. BBC Bayreuth will play against ALBA Berlin (#3) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Sixth ranked Bayern Muenchen (9-6) crushed at home 8th ranked Eisbaeren Bremerhaven (8-8) by 33 points 104-71, which is the biggest margin this round. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Eisbaeren Bremerhaven. It was a good game for Tyrese Rice who led his team to a victory with 18 points and 6 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. Bayern Muenchen have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Art.Dragons. Eisbaeren Bremerhaven at the other side keeps the eighth position with eight games lost. Bayern Muenchen's next round opponent will be Deutsche Bank Skyliners (#16) in Frankfurt which should be another easy win for them. Eisbaeren Bremerhaven will play at home against Artland Dragons (#5) in Quakenbrueck.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 15: Phoenix Hagen destroyed Neckar L'burg on the opponent's court 89-68. Art.Dragons managed to outperform NY Phantoms in a home game 85-75. LTi 46ers recorded a loss to MBC on the road 93-88. Ratiopharm defeated TBB Trier on its own court 73-58.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 29 points and 6 steals by Mark Dorris of Phoenix Hagen.

Neckar L'burg - Phoenix Hagen 68-89

Very expected game when 17th ranked EnBW Ludwigsburg (4-11) was crushed at home by eleventh ranked Phoenix Hagen (7-8) 89-68. Phoenix Hagen forced 25 EnBW Ludwigsburg turnovers. Americans were the main players on the court also this time.
