Host Sigal Prishtina (17-3) defeated guests from Prizren (15-4) 95-85. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Bashkimi. The game without a history. Sigal Prishtina led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter.

Artin Gashi contributed with 18 points for the winners. Power forward Mergim Jakupi (202-97) replied with 26 points for Kerasan. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.
