The most important game in the last round took place in Mures between second ranked Targu Mures (6-2) and seventh ranked CSM Bucuresti (6-2) on Saturday night. Targu Mures were defeated by CSM Bucuresti at home 75-93. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Targu Mures. The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 3-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 93-75. CSM Bucuresti made 21-of-22 free shots (95.5 percent) during the game. Montenegrin point guard Goran Martinic (184-87, agency: BeoExcell) orchestrated the victory by scoring 24 points and 8 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Canadian forward Jevohn Shepherd (196-86, college: Michigan) contributed with 19 points for the winners. Lithuanian guard Vaidotas Peciukas (199-82, college: Hawaii) replied with 25 points for Targu Mures. CSM Bucuresti have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with 4 other teams including defeated Targu Mures. CSM Bucuresti is looking forward to face Craiova (#5) at home in the next round. Targu Mures will play against Rovinari and are hoping to win this game.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Gaz Metan (6-3) against twelfth ranked Pitesti (4-5) on Saturday night. Host Gaz Metan was defeated by Pitesti in a tough game in Medias 74-78. Worth to mention a great performance of American-New Zealand forward Marcel Jones (203-85, college: Oregon St.) who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 8 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) and Donte Gennie who added 18 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists during the contest. American forward Deven Mitchell (197-84, agency: Interperformances) responded with 17 points and 8 rebounds. Pitesti moved-up to tenth place. Gaz Metan at the other side dropped to the seventh position with three games lost. Pitesti will play against league's second-placed Timisoara at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Gaz Metan will play against CS Dinamo Bucuresti (#15) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Division A top team - Oradea (7-1) had no problems winning another game on Friday. This time they crushed thirteenth ranked Timba Timosoara (2-6) in Timisoara 83-62. The winners were led by Milos Pesic who scored that evening 17 points and 4 assists. Even 15 points by Bosko Stojakovic did not help to save the game for Timba Timosoara. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Oradea have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 7-1 record. Newly promoted Timba Timosoara keeps the thirteenth place with six games lost. Oradea will meet at home Giurgiu (#12) in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Timba Timosoara will have a break next round.
Bottom-ranked Farul Const. is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their ninth consecutive match to ninth ranked Rovinari (5-3) 72-63. The best player for the winners was Louis Darby who scored 25 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Rovinari moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Ploiesti. Newly promoted Farul Const. still closes the standings with nine games lost. Rovinari's next round opponent will be higher ranked Targu Mures (#6) at home and it may be quite challenging game. Farul Const. will play against U-Mobitelco (#3) in Cluj and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Bottom-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their eighth consecutive match to eighth ranked Ploiesti (5-3) 86-47 on Friday evening. Virgil Stanescu orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 26 points and 13 rebounds. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion maintains eighth position with 5-3 record, which they share with Rovinari. Loser CS Dinamo Bucuresti still closes the standings with eight games lost. Ploiesti will face CSU Sibiu (#11) on the road in the next round. CS Dinamo Bucuresti will play against Gaz Metan (#7) in Medias and looks forward to get finally their first victory.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 8: U.Mobitel.CN smashed Giurgiu on the road 76-50. Craiova won against Miercurea Ciuc on its own court 77-66. CSU Sibiu was outscored by Timisoara in a road game 85-66.



Giurgiu - U.Mobitel.CN 50-76

No shocking result in a game when seventh ranked U-Mobitelco (6-2) crushed on the road 11th ranked Giurgiu (3-5) 76-50 on Monday. The guests trailed by 6 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 13-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 76-50.

American forward Derek Thomas (193-84, college: Appalachian St.) replied with 11 points and his fellow American import guard Perry Petty (185-88, college: UTPA) added 9 points in the effort for Giurgiu. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. U-Mobitelco moved-up to second place, which they share with 4 other teams. Giurgiu lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the eleventh position with five games lost. U-Mobitelco will face bottom-ranked Farul Const. (#16) in Constanca in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Giurgiu will play on the road against the league's leader Oradea (#1).
