The most exciting game of round 8 in the BLNO took place in Oslo. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 4th ranked Froya Basket (4-5) to first ranked Centrum (7-1) 65-64 on Saturday evening. The hosts trailed by 13 points after three quarters before their 20-8 charge, which allowed them to win the game. The best player for the winners was the former international point guard Mustafa Mahnin (182-80) who scored 18 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. The former international forward Frank Nyborg (197-83) chipped in 10 points and 7 rebounds. Guard Hammad Mostafa (-86) produced a double-double by scoring 15 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists for the guests. Centrum have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 7-1 record. Defending champion Froya Basket keeps the fourth place with five games lost. Centrum are looking forward to face Gimle BBK (#3) in Bergen in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Froya Basket will have a break next round.
An exciting game was played in Tromso. Third ranked Tromso faced second-ranked Gimle BBK. Host Tromso (5-1) defeated guests from Bergen (5-3) 93-84. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Gimle BBK. American forward Jonathan Jones (196-88, college: Kean) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 13 rebounds. Gary Wallace contributed with 24 points and 6 assists for the winners. Tromso's coach Kenneth Webb allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games.

The winners were led by Thomas Ble who scored that evening 26 points (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field).
