The Regular Season in Serie A2 is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Twelfth-ranked Bolzano (5-17) made lots of trouble for second ranked Empoli (19-3) on Saturday. The visitors from Empoli managed to secure only three-point victory 57-54. However their fans expected much easier game. The guests were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Empoli dominated on the defensive end, holding Bolzano to just 6 points in fourth quarter. Lithuanian forward Gabriele Narviciute (190-90) fired a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds for the winners. Forward Guia Sesoldi (180-87) chipped in 9 points and 12 rebounds. Empoli's coach Alessio Cioni used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Croatian power forward Ivona Matic (189-86) produced a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds for lost side. Empoli have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 19-3 record behind leader Vicenza. Bolzano lost third consecutive game.

Bolzano will play on the road against Costa Masnaga (#6) and is hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Orvieto (15-6) against tenth ranked Virtus Cagliari (8-14) on Saturday night. Visiting Orvieto was defeated by Virtus Cagliari in Cagliari 68-58. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Orvieto.

Leader Sesto SG delivered the twentieth victory. This time they crushed 8th ranked Albino (9-13) 74-27. Virginia Galbiati notched 19 points to lead the effort.

The game in San Martino di L was also quite interesting. Fifth ranked Udine Delser (14-7) played at the court of 8th ranked Fanola SML (8-13). Udine Delser did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 64-47 on Saturday. Ejay Ofomata fired a double-double by scoring 25 points and 13 rebounds for the winners.
