Rather expected game when 12th ranked Giurgiu (8-17) lost on the road to tenth ranked Pitesti (12-13) 73-67 on Sunday.

Dinamo B. - Timba Timis. 65-94

Rather predictable result when thirteenth ranked Timba Timosoara (6-19) rolled over on the road bottom-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (1-24) 94-65 on Sunday. The game without a history.
