J.R. Giddens
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Sigma Barcellona (10-4) in Brescia on Sunday night. Visitors were rolled over by ninth ranked C.de Latte BRE (7-6) 101-69. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Sigma Barcellona. The game without a history. C.de Latte BRE led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot 63.3 percent from the field. C.de Latte BRE had a 30-19 advantage in offensive rebounds. They shot the lights out from three sinking 13 long-distance shots on high 61.9 percentage. C.de Latte BRE looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. American swingman J.R. Giddens (196-85, college: N.Mexico) scored 24 points and 8 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Greek forward Nikos Barlos (203-79) chipped in 19 points and 8 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) during the contest. C.de Latte BRE's coach Alberto Martelossi felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American point guard Taurean Green (184-85, college: Florida) responded with 19 points. C.de Latte BRE moved-up to sixth place, which they share with AcegasAps TR and LeGanberi FO. Sigma Barcellona at the other side still keeps top position with four games lost. They share it with Novipiu Casale. C.de Latte BRE is looking forward to face Pall.Trento (#10) on the road in the next round. Sigma Barcellona will play against Givova Scafati (#4) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Tuscany Pistoia (9-4) against fourteenth ranked Upea CdO (4-9) on Sunday night. Visiting Tuscany Pistoia was defeated by Upea CdO in a tough game in Capo d'Orlando 70-75. American point guard Talor Battle (183-88, college: Penn St.) notched 22 points to lead the effort and Otis George supported him with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Even 17 points and 5 assists by Panamanian swingman Michael Hicks (194-76, college: Texas A&M-CC) did not help to save the game for Tuscany Pistoia. Upea CdO moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with FCM Ferentino. Tuscany Pistoia at the other side dropped to the third position with four games lost. They share it with Givova Scafati. Upea CdO will play against bottom-ranked Aget Service IM (#15) in Imola in the next round. Tuscany Pistoia will play at home against Prima Veroli (#12) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Forli between LeGamberi Foods Forlì and Pall.Trento. Eighth ranked LeGamberi Foods Forlì (7-6) got a very close home victory over 11th ranked Pall.Trento (5-8). LeGamberi Foods Forlì managed to escape with a 3-point win 87-84 on Sunday evening. The best player for the winners was Terrence Roderick who scored 28 points and 7 assists. Barry Elder produced 28 points (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) for the guests. LeGamberi Foods Forlì have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with AcegasAps TR and C.de Latte BRE. Pall.Trento lost fifth consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the tenth position with eight games lost. They share it with Fileni BPA Jesi and Prima Veroli. LeGamberi Foods Forlì will meet Tezenis VE (#9) in the next round. Pall.Trento will play against C.de Latte BRE in Brescia and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Jesi. It ended with only three-point home defeat of 10th ranked Fileni BPA Jesi (5-8) to thirteenth ranked FCM Ferentino (4-9) 75-72 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Fileni BPA Jesi. Delroy James orchestrated the victory by scoring 26 points and 6 rebounds (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field). Fileni BPA Jesi's coach Stefano Cioppi rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Newly promoted FCM Ferentino maintains thirteenth position with 4-9 record, which they share with Upea CdO. Fileni BPA Jesi at the other side keeps the tenth place with eight games lost. FCM Ferentino's next round opponent will be higher ranked Biancoblu BO (#5) in Bologna and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
An interesting game took place in Veroli where higher ranked Tezenis VE (7-7) was upset on the court of twelfth ranked Prima Veroli (5-8) 69-64 on Sunday.
