Eredivisie round 21 caused change at the leadership position. Fifth defeat of league's leader Leiden (18-5) against ninth ranked Amsterdam (3-20) 72-69 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Leiden. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 13-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 72-69. It was a good game for forward Pascal Balm (200-84) who led his team to a victory with 16 points and 6 rebounds. The former international guard Jeremy Ormskerk (190-82, agency: Court Side) contributed with 16 points and 5 assists for the winners. Canadian forward Ross Bekkering (203-87) answered with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for Leiden. Amsterdam maintains ninth place with 3-20 record. Leiden at the other side dropped to the second position with five games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Den Bosch.
