The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most crucial game of the last round was another loss of top-ranked SG Schwelmer Baskets (16-3) at the home court on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by third ranked SC Rist Wedel (13-6) 90-86. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in Group North. It was a great shooting night for SC Rist Wedel especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 56.3 percentage. Worth to mention a great performance of American Davey Hopkins (195-88, college: Biola, CA) who helped to win the game recording 20 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. His fellow American import point guard Augie Johnston (185-86, college: CS Monterey) contributed with 21 points for the winners. American Julius Coles (193-89, college: Canisius) answered with 32 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for SG Schwelmer Baskets. SC Rist Wedel moved-up to second place in Group North. SG Schwelmer Baskets at the other side still keep top position with three games lost. SC Rist Wedel are looking forward to face Recklinghausen (#5) at home in the next round. SG Schwelmer Baskets will play against Hannover Tigers (#9) in Hannover and are hoping to win this game.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Herten Lions (12-7) against fifth ranked Recklinghausen (10-9) on Saturday night. Host Herten Lions were defeated by Recklinghausen in a tough game in Herten 89-97. American players dominated the game. It was a great evening for forward Robert Franklin (195-81, college: N.Mexico Highlands) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 18 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists. Patrick Carney helped adding 23 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists (made all of his seven free throws). At the losing side guard Adrian Bowie (189-89, college: Maryland) responded with 37 points (!!!), 5 assists and 4 steals. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Recklinghausen have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place in Group North, which they share with Oldenburg. Herten Lions at the other side dropped to the third position with seven games lost. Recklinghausen will play against league's second-placed SC Rist Wedel on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Herten Lions will play against Dorsten and hope to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game for Weissenhorn Youngstars (13-6) which hosted in Weissenhorn 3rd placed Noerdlingen (11-8). Second ranked Weissenhorn Youngstars managed to get a 10-point victory 92-82. It was an exceptional evening for Myles Hesson who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds. Chad Gray came up with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds for Noerdlingen in the defeat. Weissenhorn Youngstars have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain second place in Group South with 13-6 record having four points less than leader Dragons. Loser Noerdlingen keeps the third position with eight games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Weissenhorn Youngstars will meet Licher Baeren (#5) on the road in the next round. Noerdlingen will play against Dresden and hope to secure a win.
We should not miss a home victory of eighth ranked Leitershofen (9-10) over 4th placed Fraport Skyliners II (10-9) 105-91. Lindsey Hughey fired 35 points (!!!), 6 assists and 5 steals (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) for the winners. Fraport Skyliners II's coach rotated ten players and allowed the starting five to rest. Leitershofen maintains eighth place in Group South with 9-10 record. Fraport Skyliners II at the other side dropped to the seventh position with nine games lost. Leitershofen's next round opponent will be higher ranked TV 1862 Langen (#6) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
ProB top team - Dragons Rhoendorf (17-2) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat ninth ranked Hanau (8-11) 85-72. It was a very good performance for Alejo Rodriguez who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points and 16 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Dragons Rhoendorf's coach Boris Kaminski used a ten-player rotation saving starting five for next games. Dragons Rhoendorf have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain first place in Group South with 17-2 record. Loser Hanau keeps the ninth position with 11 games lost.
