    The most exciting game of round 17 in the SuperLeague took place in Theranda. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of 6th ranked Rahoveci (6-9) to fifth ranked Ylli (8-8) 70-69 in the game for the fifth place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Rahoveci. The guests trailed by 1 point after three quarters before their 14-12 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Ylli forced 19 Rahoveci turnovers. American forward Chris Olivier (203-92, college: Oklahoma St.) saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 12 rebounds. Center Ergin Grosha (211-93) contributed with 17 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Center Besnik Sharku (203-89) answered with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds for Rahoveci. Ylli maintains fifth place with 8-8 record. Newly promoted Rahoveci keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. Ylli are looking forward to face league's second-placed Bashkimi in Prizren in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Rahoveci will play on the road against Trepca (#4) in Mitrovice and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
    Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Prishtina: Sigal Prishtina (#1) and Kerasan (#8). Sigal Prishtina (13-2) crushed visiting Kerasan (0-17) by 53 points 114-61. The former international center Urim Zenelaj (213-91, agency: Interperformances) stepped up and scored 17 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners and Fisnik Rugova chipped in 18 points and 7 rebounds. Rinor Ahmeti (188-96) responded with 18 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Sigal Prishtina have an impressive series of thirteen victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 13-2 record. Kerasan at the other side still closes the standings. Sigal Prishtina will play against Vellaznimi (#7) in Gjakove in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Kerasan will play on the road against Peja in Peje and hopes to get finally their first victory.
    Very important is a road loss of second ranked Peja (11-3) against fourth ranked Trepca (11-6) on Saturday night. Visiting Peja was defeated by Trepca in Mitrovice 83-65. American players dominated the game. Montrael Scott nailed 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side. Noah Dahlman came up with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds for Peja in the defeat. Trepca maintains fourth place with 11-6 record. Loser Peja dropped to the third position with three games lost. Trepca will meet at home Rahoveci (#6) in the next round. Peja will play against Kerasan and hope to secure a win.
