    Jeremy Wise
    The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Sigal Prishtina (15-3) in Mitrovice on Saturday night. Visitors were edged by fourth ranked Trepca (13-7) 84-83. It ended at the same time the 15-game winning streak of Sigal Prishtina. American guard Jeremy Wise (191-86, college: S.Mississippi) saved the victory by scoring 26 points and 5 rebounds (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field). The former international forward Samir Zekiqi (202-95) contributed with 24 points for the winners. The former international forward Drilon Hajrizi (203-91) replied with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists for Sigal Prishtina. Sigal Prishtina's coach Audrius Prakuraitis tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Trepca maintains fourth position with 13-7 record. Defending champion Sigal Prishtina still keeps top place with three games lost. They share the position with Bashkimi. Trepca are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Kerasan (#8) in Prishtina in the next round. Sigal Prishtina will play at home against Rahoveci (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
    Sixth-ranked Rahoveci (6-12) used its home court advantage to challenge second ranked Bashkimi (15-3). The visitors from Prizren managed to secure only two-point victory 83-81.

Power forward Mustafe Merovci (202-88) responded with 17 points. Bashkimi have an impressive five-game winning streak. They used an opportunity after Sigal Prishtina lost their game and moved up joining them at the top position. Rahoveci lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the sixth place with 12 games lost. Bashkimi will play against Peja (#3) in Peje in the next round, which may be the game of the day.
