There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with extra overtimes and favorites losing the games.

The most important game in the last round took place in Craiova between second ranked Timisoara (7-3) and ninth ranked Craiova (7-3) on Saturday night.

The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Timisoara won third quarter 24-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Craiova forced 21 Timisoara turnovers. Serbian guard Rade Dzambic (188-80, college: NYIT, agency: TSS Management) scored 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Serbian guard Darko Habus (186-82) chipped in 21 points and 4 steals during the contest.

It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of U-Mobitelco. Montenegrin guard Branko Cuic (197-78) notched 18 points and 9 assists to lead the effort and Matija Ceskovic supported him with 19 points and 5 assists. Targu Mures' coach Srecko Sekulovic allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games.

Worth to mention a great performance of Jordan Glynn who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 26 points and 16 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws).

Timba Timosoara's next round opponent will be higher ranked CSU Sibiu (#11) on the road and it may be quite challenging game.

Ploiesti - Miercurea Ciuc 95-69

Not a big story in a game when 14th ranked Miercurea Ciuc (1-10) was rolled over on the road by seventh ranked Ploiesti (7-3) 95-69 on Friday. The game without a history. Ploiesti led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to Miercurea Ciuc's 34. They outrebounded Miercurea Ciuc 28-14 including a 22-9 advantage in defensive rebounds. Ploiesti looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Miercurea Ciuc's players. The former international power forward Virgil Stanescu (208-77, college: S.Alabama, agency: Interperformances) scored 23 points (on 9-of-10 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and the former international center Catalin Burlacu (210-77, agency: Court Side) chipped in 11 points and 5 assists during the contest. Four Ploiesti players scored in double figures. At the losing side Croatian power forward Marijo Hajdic (206-89) responded with 13 points and 4 assists (made all of his seven free throws) and Croatian forward Franko Filipovic (203-87) scored 12 points. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Ploiesti have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to second place, which they share with 6 other teams. Miercurea Ciuc lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth position with ten games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
