The game between third ranked Cuxhaven BasCats (12-7) and thirteenth ranked Oettinger Rockets Gotha (7-12) was the most important one in the last round on Saturday night.

Very important is a home loss of second ranked BG Goettingen (14-5) against fourteenth ranked Crailsheim Merlins (7-12) on Saturday night. Host BG Goettingen was defeated by Crailsheim Merlins in a tough game in Goettingen 68-74.

Stevie Johnson accounted for 18 points and 8 rebounds. Crailsheim Merlins' coach Willie Young allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games.
