    Kiel Turpin
    The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets.

    The game between fourth ranked Trepca (16-7) and 5th ranked Xhebrailat (10-12) in Mitrovice on Saturday ended with biggest points difference. Trepca outscored guests from Therande 131-76. The game was mostly controlled by Trepca. Xhebrailat managed to win third quarter 26-23. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Trepca dominated down low during the game scoring 78 of its points in the paint compared to Xhebrailat's 54. Trepca forced 19 Xhebrailat turnovers. They shot the lights out from three sinking 13 long-distance shots on high 56.5 percentage. Trepca looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. American center Kiel Turpin (213-89, college: Florida St., agency: Three Eye Sports) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 11 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). His fellow American import guard Jeremy Wise (191-86, college: S.Mississippi) contributed with 28 points (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) for the winners. Trepca's coach Dimitris Papadopoulos felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American Trae Anderson (196, college: E.Illinois) answered with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists for Xhebrailat. Trepca have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to third place. Xhebrailat at the other side keeps the fifth position with 12 games lost. Trepca are looking forward to face Peja (#4) in Peje in the next round. Xhebrailat will play at home against Rahoveci and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

    In the last two games of round 23 Vellaznimi was beaten by Rahoveci on the road 82-77. Bashkimi destroyed Kerasan on its own court 115-61.

    Rahoveci - Vellaznimi 82-77

    The game between closely ranked teams ended with sixth ranked Rahoveci's (8-13) home victory over 7th ranked Vellaznimi (2-21) 82-77 on Sunday. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 31-16. But Vellaznimi won second period 18-10. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Vellaznimi 52-24 including a 18-2 advantage in offensive rebounds. American center Ronald Farmer-Blanchard (208-91, college: Wash.Adventist) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 18 rebounds. His fellow American import guard Tyler Deihl (185-91, college: Francis Marion) contributed with 16 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Rahoveci's coach Jeton Nixha used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Beqe Kovaqi (196-94) answered with 29 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists and guard Driton Rraci (194-84) added 20 points and 4 steals in the effort for Vellaznimi. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Newly promoted Rahoveci maintains sixth place with 8-13 record. Vellaznimi lost eleventh consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with 21 games lost. Rahoveci are looking forward to face higher ranked Xhebrailat (#5) in Therande in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Vellaznimi will play at home against the league's second-placed Bashkimi and is hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.

    Bashkimi - Kerasan 115-61

    Very expected game when 8th ranked Kerasan (1-22) was smashed by third ranked Bashkimi (16-4) in Prizren 115-61 on Saturday. The game without a history. Bashkimi led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to Kerasan's 30. They outrebounded Kerasan 58-33 including a 43-22 advantage in defensive rebounds. Bashkimi looked well-organized offensively handing out 29 assists comparing to just 14 passes made by Kerasan's players. The former international center Gazmend Sinani (206-91) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points and 9 rebounds. American guard Justin Black (188-92, college: Morgan St., agency: Octagon Europe) contributed with 17 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Four Bashkimi players scored in double figures. Bashkimi's coach Dragan Radovic felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Power forward Mergim Jakupi (202-97) answered with 18 points and 8 rebounds and point guard Ilir Hasani (186-97) added 7 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists in the effort for Kerasan.
