    Justin Black
    There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in SuperLeague.

    An interesting game for Bashkimi (20-4) which played road game in Mitrovice against 4th ranked Trepca (17-9). Second ranked Bashkimi had an easy win 99-77. Bashkimi dominated down low during the game scoring 66 of its points in the paint compared to Trepca's 46. American guard Justin Black (188-92, college: Morgan St., agency: Octagon Europe) orchestrated the victory by scoring 31 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. The other American import forward Kayel Locke (196-94, college: NC-Greensboro) contributed with 22 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. American guard Montrael Scott (190-93, college: Prairie View A&M) replied with a double-double by scoring 30 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists for Trepca. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Bashkimi have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 20-4 record behind leader Sigal Prishtina. Trepca at the other side keeps the fourth place with nine games lost. Bashkimi are looking forward to face Rahoveci (#6) at home in the next round. Trepca will play against the league's leader Sigal Prishtina and is hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
    An interesting game for Bashkimi (20-4) which hosted in Prizren one of their biggest challengers Peja (18-5). Second ranked Bashkimi managed to get a 9-point victory 82-73. American guard Justin Black (188-92, college: Morgan St., agency: Octagon Europe) scored 18 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals to lead the charge for the winners and Kayel Locke chipped in 20 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Bashkimi's coach Dragan Radovic allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. The former international forward Alban Veseli (202-90) responded with 19 points and 6 rebounds. Bashkimi have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 20-4 record behind leader Sigal Prishtina. Peja at the other side keeps the third place with five games lost. Bashkimi will play against Rahoveci (#6) at home in the next round. Peja will play against Vellaznimi in Gjakove and hopes to get back on the winning track.
    Bottom-ranked Kerasan managed to get a second victory, breaking the six-game losing streak on Sunday night. This time they won against seventh-ranked Vellaznimi in Gjakove 74-61. Alban Latifaj notched 21 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals to lead the effort. Even 25 points and 8 rebounds by Beqe Kovaqi did not help to save the game for Vellaznimi. Kerasan (2-24) moved-up to seventh place, which they share with defeated Vellaznimi. Vellaznimi lost fourteenth consecutive game. Kerasan will meet at home higher ranked Xhebrailat (#5) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Vellaznimi will play against Peja and hope to secure a win.
    SuperLeague top team - Sigal Prishtina (21-3) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat fifth ranked Xhebrailat (10-15) in Therande 110-96. The best player for the winners was Mike Moser who scored 29 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Sigal Prishtina have an impressive six-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 21-3 record. Xhebrailat lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with 15 games lost. Sigal Prishtina's next round opponent will be Trepca (#4) in Mitrovice. Xhebrailat will play on the road against Kerasan in Prishtina and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
    The game between third ranked Peja (18-5) and 6th ranked Rahoveci (9-15) in Peje on Saturday ended with biggest points difference. Peja outscored guests from Rahoveci 118-80. Alban Veseli orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points and 4 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Peja maintains third position with 18-5 record having four points less than leader Sigal Prishtina. Newly promoted Rahoveci keeps the sixth place with 15 games lost. Peja will face bottom-ranked Vellaznimi (#8) in Gjakove in the next round where they are favorite. Rahoveci will play on the road against the league's second-placed Bashkimi in Prizren and hope to win that game.
