The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of T71 Dudelange (0-1) in Ettelbruck on Sunday night. Visitors were defeated by Etzella (1-0) 74-61. The game was mostly controlled by Etzella. T71 Dudelange managed to win fourth quarter 22-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Etzella forced 19 T71 Dudelange turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. American forward Jessilyn Conicelli (177-F-89, college: Biola, CA) fired a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Canadian guard Katie Donovan (178-82) chipped in 9 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. International center Michcle Orban (190-86) produced a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds and American forward Lydia Bridenbaugh (178-89, college: W.Virg.Wesl.) added 15 points and 7 rebounds (made all of her seven free throws) respectively for lost side. T71 Dudelange's coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. It was the only win of host team this round and in all other games visitors recorded victories. Etzella will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. T71 Dudelange will play at home against Racing in Luxembourg and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Another exciting game was played in Bertrange between Musel Pikes and Sparta where Musel Pikes (1-0) beat Sparta (0-1) on the road with 18-point difference 69-51. The game was mostly controlled by Musel Pikes. Sparta was better in third quarter 16-11. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.
