Gabric
The Regular Season in BLNO just ended. The round 24 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

BLNO top team - Kongsberg (23-4) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat seventh ranked Nidaros Jets (12-15) in Tromdheim 87-75. The game was mostly controlled by Kongsberg. Nidaros Jets managed to win fourth quarter 24-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Worth to mention a quality performance of Croatian guard Tomislav Gabric (198-91, college: Ft.Hays State) who helped to win the game recording 23 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists and Cuban-American guard Juan Ferrales (188-91, college: Barry) who added 19 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was American guard Kahlil McDonald (194-87, college: W.Kentucky) with 28 points and 8 rebounds. Kongsberg maintains first position with 23-4 record. Nidaros Jets lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the seventh place with 15 games lost.
9th ranked Ammerud Bskt (5-22) was outscored at home by fifth ranked Centrum (16-11) with the biggest margin this round 127-43. The winners were led by American Torgrim Sommerfeldt (198-89, college: Manhattan) who scored that evening 21 points and 6 assists and Magnus Midtvedt supported him with 19 points (went 10 for 10 at the free throw line !!!). Even 12 points by forward Emil Hoel (190-94) 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. Defending champion maintains fifth position with 16-11 record. Ammerud Bskt lost eighth consecutive game. They keep the ninth place with 22 games lost.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 24: bottom-ranked Persbraten was destroyed by Baerum Basket on the opponent's court 98-79. Froya Basket managed to outperform Tromso in a home game 56-48. Tromso recorded a loss to Gimle BBK on the road 80-67.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 33 points (!!!) and 10 rebounds by James Weatherspoon of Baerum Basket.

Baerum Basket - Persbraten 98-79

Very expected game in Bekkestua where 10th ranked Persbraten (2-25) was crushed by second ranked Baerum Basket (21-6) 98-79. The game was mostly controlled by Baerum Basket. Persbraten was better in fourth quarter 20-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Baerum Basket dominated down low during the game scoring 70 of its points in the paint compared to Persbraten's 36. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 27 assists. The winners were led by American forward James Weatherspoon (198-92, college: Toledo) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!) and 10 rebounds (on 15-of-18 shooting from the field) and point guard Stian Mjos (183-89) supported him with 29 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Even a double-double of 17 points and 13 rebounds by Swedish guard Aron Furstenberg (192-88) did not help to save the game for Persbraten. Forward Eivind Jorgensen (195-94) added 18 points. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Baerum Basket maintains second position with 21-6 record having just two points less than leader Kongsberg. Newly promoted Persbraten stay dead last with 25 lost games.

Ammerud Bskt - Centrum 43-127

9th ranked Ammerud Bskt (5-22) was outscored at home by fifth ranked Centrum (16-11) with the biggest margin this round 127-43. The game without a history. Centrum led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Ammerud Bskt to just 6 points in fourth quarter. Centrum dominated down low during the game scoring 72 of its points in the paint compared to Ammerud Bskt's 24 and had 25 for 35 from the free-throw line, while Ammerud Bskt only scored four points from the stripe. Centrum forced 28 Ammerud Bskt turnovers and outrebounded them 43-21 including a 33-14 advantage in defensive rebounds.

Five Centrum players scored in double figures. Even 12 points by forward Emil Hoel (190-94) did not help to save the game for Ammerud Bskt. Guard Jonathan Maehlum (186-98) added 9 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion maintains fifth position with 16-11 record.

Froya Basket - Tromso 56-48

Rather predictable result in Laksevag where fourth ranked Froya Basket (17-10) defeated 8th ranked Tromso (9-18) 56-48. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Tromso won third quarter 12-11. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Froya Basket brought some defensive toughness making 7 blocks. The winners were led by American forward Jeff Harper (203-87) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 21 points and 12 rebounds and forward Arne Ingebrigtsen (197-90, college: Cuesta JC) supported him with 12 points. Harper is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Froya Basket's coach Brent Hackman allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even a double-double of 14 points and 17 rebounds by guard Hani Issalhi (191-84) did not help to save the game for Tromso. Point guard Aslak Smalas (186-89) added 11 points and 6 rebounds.

Gimle BBK - Tromso 80-67

Not a big story in a game in Bergen where 8th ranked Tromso (9-18) was defeated by third ranked Gimle BBK (17-10) 80-67. Tromso was tied at the half but could not keep up in last two quarters eventually losing the game.
