Jonathan
Jones
Very significant was Tromso's (#1, 13-3) victory against second-best Centrum (12-5) 90-74. The game was mostly controlled by Tromso. Centrum managed to win third quarter 18-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Tromso dominated down low during the game scoring 64 of its points in the paint compared to Centrum's 40. 24 personal fouls committed by Centrum helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American forward Jonathan Jones (196-88, college: Kean) had a double-double by scoring 36 points (!!!) and 10 rebounds (on 15-of-18 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and the other American import guard Gary Wallace (187-88, college: Robert Morris, agency: TSS Management) chipped in 26 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals during the contest. The best for the losing side was the former international forward Frank Nyborg (197-83) with 28 points and 6 rebounds. Tromso maintains first position with 13-3 record. Centrum at the other side keeps the second place with five games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
The game in Oslo supposed to be also worth to mention about. Third ranked Baerum Basket (9-8) played at the court of 7th ranked Ammerud Bskt (3-13). Baerum Basket smashed Ammerud Bskt 97-62. American swingman Ryan Ferranti (195-86, college: Rollins) notched 17 points and 6 rebounds to lead the effort and Ramme Haag supported him with 13 points and 6 rebounds. Even 20 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists by American swingman Ronald Timus (197-84, college: Morgan St.) did not help to save the game for Ammerud Bskt. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Baerum Basket maintains third position with 9-8 record having three points less than leader Tromso. Ammerud Bskt at the other side stay at the bottom place with 13 games lost. Baerum Basket will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Ammerud Bskt will play on the road against Gimle BBK (#6) in Bergen and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 18 bottom-ranked Ammerud Bskt was destroyed by Asker Aliens on the opponent's court 103-74.


Asker Aliens - Ammerud Bskt 103-74

The game between closely ranked teams ended with 7th ranked Ammerud Bskt's (3-13) road loss to sixth ranked Asker Aliens (7-9) 74-103. The game without a history. Asker Aliens led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 22-of-25 charity shots (88.0 percent) during the game. Asker Aliens had a 28-17 advantage in offensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 27 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Ammerud Bskt's players. DR Congolese power forward Djo Yele (-82) notched a double-double by scoring 24 points and 11 rebounds (on 9-of-10 shooting from the field) to lead the effort and the former international guard Espen Stien (186-86) supported him with 24 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Five Asker Aliens players scored in double figures. Even 30 points by American swingman Ronald Timus (197-84, college: Morgan St.) did not help to save the game for Ammerud Bskt. Forward Martin Bryn (193-89) added 9 points and 9 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Asker Aliens have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Ammerud Bskt at the other side stay at the bottom position with 13 games lost. Asker Aliens will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Ammerud Bskt will play on the road against Gimle BBK (#6) in Bergen and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
