Leader Tromso delivered the twelfth victory. This time they crushed 7th ranked Ammerud Bskt (2-11) 96-64.

Hani Issalhi contributed with 22 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals for the winners. Tromso's coach Kenneth Webb felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
