The game between third ranked Castelletto (12-7) and ninth ranked Chieti (10-9) was the most important one in the last round on Sunday night. Castelletto was defeated by Chieti in a tough game in Chieti 80-85. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Castelletto. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Chieti dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Castelletto's 36. The best player for the winners was the former international center Emanuele Rossi (208-82) who had a double-double by scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds. Naturalized San Marino Andrea Raschi (198-79) chipped in 23 points and 7 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was the former international point guard Federico Bolzonella (184-84) who recorded 16 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Chieti moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Lucca. Castelletto at the other side keeps the third position with seven games lost. Chieti is looking forward to face higher ranked Treviglio (#7) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Castelletto will play against the league's leader Torino (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Leader Torino delivered the sixteenth victory. This time they beat 10th ranked Casalpusterlengo (8-10) 72-59. It was a good game for naturalized Polish power forward Jakub Wojciechowski (210-90) who led his team to a victory with 15 points and 7 rebounds. Marco Evangelisti contributed with 18 points for the winners. Forward Gianpaolo Ricci (200-91) answered with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 10 rebounds for Casalpusterlengo.

Torino will play against Castelletto (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Casalpusterlengo will play against Mazzeo San Severo (#16) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Latina, where higher ranked Lucca (10-9) lost to eighteenth ranked Latina Basket (6-14) in a road game 62-68 on Sunday. Manuel Carrizo stepped up and scored 14 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. The best for the losing side was Andrea Barsanti with 18 points. Latina Basket moved-up to seventeenth place.

Latina Basket will meet higher ranked Agrigento (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

An interesting game took place in Mirandola, where 4th placed Agrigento (11-8) lost to fourteenth ranked Mirandola (8-11) in a road game 63-71. Michele Venturelli nailed 24 points (went 10 for 10 at the free throw line !!!) for the winning side. Agrigento's coach Franco Ciani rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Mirandola have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Reggio Calabr. Agrigento lost third consecutive game. Agrigento at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. Mirandola's next round opponent will be Reggio Calabr. (#13) in Reggio Calabria. Agrigento will play at home against Latina Basket (#17).
An interesting game took place in Recanati, where higher ranked Treviglio (11-8) lost to fifteenth ranked Recanati (7-12) in a road game 69-77 on Sunday.
