Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

Seventh-ranked Tezenis VE (8-10) was very close to win a game against first ranked Sigma Barcellona (13-5) on Sunday. Sigma Barcellona managed to secure only one-point victory 74-73. However their fans expected much easier game. Tezenis VE was trailing by 1 point at halftime but managed to get 2-point lead after three quarters before a 17-14 charge of Sigma Barcellona, which allowed them to win the game. They made 17-of-19 free shots (89.5 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Georgian swingman Melvin Sanders (196-81, college: Oklahoma St.) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and 7 rebounds. Naturalized American forward Craig Callahan (203-81, college: NC-Wilmington, agency: Three Eye Sports) contributed with 16 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Nigerian-American power forward Olaseni Lawal (208-86, college: Wayne St., MI, agency: Pro One Sports) answered with 13 points and 9 rebounds (perfect from the field making all six shots) for Tezenis VE. Sigma Barcellona maintains first place with 13-5 record, which they share with Giorgo Tesi PT. Tezenis VE lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth position with ten games lost. They share it with AcegasAps TR. Sigma Barcellona is looking forward to face FCM Ferentino (#12) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Tezenis VE will play against Upea CdO in Capo d'Orlando and is hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.
An interesting game for Novipiu Casale (12-6) which hosted in Casale 4th placed C.de Latte BRE (11-7). Third ranked Novipiu Casale managed to get a 4-point victory 91-87. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of C.de Latte BRE. It was a great evening for American point guard Casper Ware (177-90, college: Long Beach St.) who led his team to a victory scoring 38 points (!!!), 6 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals (made all of his eight free throws). Rodney Green helped adding 20 points. At the losing side Greek forward Nikos Barlos (203-79) responded with 16 points and 6 rebounds. Novipiu Casale maintains third place with 12-6 record having just -5 point less than leader Sigma Barcel. C.de Latte BRE at the other side keeps the fourth position with seven games lost. Novipiu Casale will play against Fileni BPA Jesi (#13) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. C.de Latte BRE will play against Prima Veroli (#11) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game between thirteenth ranked Prima Veroli (7-11) and 12th ranked Upea CdO (7-11) in Veroli on Sunday ended with biggest points difference. Prima Veroli outscored guests from Capo d'Orlando 90-66. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Upea CdO. It was a quality performance for Erving Walker who led the winners and scored 26 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Prima Veroli's coach Franco Marcelletti felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Matteo Palermo came up with 11 points and 5 rebounds for Upea CdO in the defeat. Prima Veroli moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with 3 other teams including defeated Upea CdO. Prima Veroli will meet higher ranked C.de Latte BRE (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
