The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Oradea (18-2) on the court of sixth ranked Timisoara on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by Timisoara 63-56. It ended at the same time the 14-game winning streak of Oradea. The hosts trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 17-5 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Timisoara dominated on the defensive end, holding Oradea to just 5 points in fourth quarter. They outrebounded Oradea 49-38 including 34 on the defensive glass. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Dominique Archie (200-87, college: S.Carolina) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 19 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists and the other American import power forward Delvon Johnson (206-89, college: Arkansas, agency: Priority Sports) who added 6 points and 20 rebounds during the contest. Australian swingman Daniel Dillon (194-86, college: Arizona) responded with 16 points and 9 rebounds. Timisoara (14-6) moved-up to third place, which they share with Targu Mures and U.Mobitel.CN. Oradea at the other side still keeps top position with two games lost. Timisoara is looking forward to face Pitesti (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Oradea will play against Ploiesti (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
Very significant was U-Mobitelco's (#4) 97-88 road victory against 5th ranked Ploiesti. The winners were led by American guard Derek Wright (180-86, college: Austin Peay St.) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 28 points, 5 rebounds, 13 assists and 4 steals (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) and Hristo Nikolov supported him with 20 points. Even 21 points and 8 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) by Serbian Predrag Miletic (193-84) did not help to save the game for Ploiesti. U-Mobitelco (14-6) have an impressive six-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Timisoara and Targu Mures. Defending champion Ploiesti dropped to the sixth position with seven games lost. They share it with CSM Bucuresti. U-Mobitelco will play against Gaz Metan (#8) in Medias in the next round where they are favorite. Ploiesti will play on the road against the league's leader Oradea and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Targu Mures (14-6) against twelfth ranked Giurgiu (7-13) on Saturday night. Visiting Targu Mures were defeated by Giurgiu in Giurgiu 89-79. The best player for the winners was Perry Petty who scored 29 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Andrija Ciric produced a double-double by scoring 35 points (!!!) and 11 rebounds for the guests. Giurgiu maintains twelfth position with 7-13 record. Loser Targu Mures dropped to the third place with six games lost. They share the position with Timisoara and U.Mobitel.CN. Giurgiu will meet higher ranked CSM Bucuresti (#7) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Targu Mures will play against Farul Const. (#14) in Constanca and hope to secure a win.
Bottom-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (0-20) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 20th consecutive match to tenth ranked CSU Sibiu (10-10) 110-46. Mildon Ambres orchestrated the victory by scoring 26 points and 5 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. CSU Sibiu moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Rovinari. CS Dinamo Bucuresti at the other side still closes the standings. CSU Sibiu's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Craiova at home and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. CS Dinamo Bucuresti will play against Miercurea Ciuc (#15) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 20: Pitesti won against Miercurea Ciuc on the opponent's court 93-81. Gaz Metan managed to outperform Rovinari in a home game 75-71. CSM Bucuresti rolled over Timba Timis. on the road 77-56.


CSU Sibiu - Dinamo B. 110-46

Bottom-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (0-20) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 20th consecutive match to tenth ranked CSU Sibiu (10-10) 110-46. The game without a history.

American guard Spencer Dixon (182, college: Kennesaw St.) replied with 13 points and center Ciprian Mihai (203-90) added 10 points in the effort for CS Dinamo Bucuresti.

Miercurea Ciuc - Pitesti 81-93

Rather expected game when 14th ranked Miercurea Ciuc (3-17) was defeated at home by eleventh ranked Pitesti (9-11) 93-81.
