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. American forward Delano Thomas (203-81, college: Shawnee St.) replied with a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 7 blocks for Gimle BBK. Tromso have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place. Gimle BBK at the other side dropped to the third position with three games lost. Tromso will play against bottom-ranked Asker Aliens (#7) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Gimle BBK will play against the league's leader Centrum (#1) in Oslo and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Asker Aliens can celebrate finally their first win this season after six consecutive loses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Bekkestua, where they defeated Baerum Basket (2-5) 85-68 on Tuesday. Worth to mention a great performance of Elias Westerlund who helped to win the game recording 31 points and 5 rebounds. Keith Thompson responded with 19 points and 8 rebounds. Baerum Basket's coach Mathias Eckhoff rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Asker Aliens maintains seventh position with 1-6 record. It was Baerum Basket's third loss in a row. They keep the fifth place with five games lost. They share the position with Ammerud Bskt. Asker Aliens will meet at home league's second-placed Tromso in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Baerum Basket will play against the league's second-placed Tromso and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Leader Centrum delivered the seventh victory. This time they crushed 7th ranked Asker Aliens (1-6) 106-66. The winners were led by Thomas Ble who scored that evening 26 points (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field).

They maintain first position with 7-1 record. Asker Aliens lost sixth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with six games lost. Centrum's next round opponent will be Gimle BBK (#3) in Bergen, which may be the game of the day. Asker Aliens will play at home against the league's second-placed Tromso (#2).

Ammerud Bskt defeated Froya Basket 70-57 on Sunday. The best player for the winners was Ronald Timus who had a double-double by scoring 23 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals.
