It's still too early stage of the Regular Season in Superlaegue, but even now we can clearly see the differece between stronger teams and outsiders. The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games.

Round 5 in Superlaegue means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Saransk where host Ruskon-Mordovia (3-2) edged league's leader Universitet-Yugra (4-1) 84-82 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Universitet-Yugra. The hosts trailed by 2 points at the halftime before their 26-18 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Ruskon-Mordovia shot the lights out from three sinking 15 long-distance shots on high 57.7 percentage. The best player for the winners was guard Fedor Klyuchnikov (192-90) who scored 20 points and 5 assists. Forward Roman Semerninov (200-81) chipped in 18 points. The former international forward Vladimir Dyachok (204-80) produced 22 points and 4 steals (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) for the guests. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Ruskon-Mordovia moved-up to fifth place, which they share with TEMP-SUMZ and Severstal. Universitet-Yugra at the other side still keeps top position with one game lost. They share it with Ataman. They were replaced at the leadership position by Ataman. Universitet-Yugra will play next round against league's leader Ataman trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Ruskon-Mordovia will try to continue on its current victory against fourteenth ranked Volgograd on the road.
Undefeated Ataman (4-1) recorded its first loss in Rostov. Hosts were defeated by fourteenth ranked Sojuz Zaretchny (2-3) 102-97. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Ataman. Point guard Sergei Chudinovskich (193-81) orchestrated the victory by scoring 25 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). Aleksander Pushkin contributed with 37 points (!!!) for the winners. Canadian power forward Sean Denison (211-85, college: Santa Clara, agency: Interperformances) answered with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 11 rebounds for Ataman. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Sojuz Zaretchny moved-up to ninth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Ataman at the other side still keeps top position with one game lost. They share it with Univ.Surgut. Sojuz Zaretchny will play against Rjazan (#10) on the road in the next round. Ataman will play against the league's second-placed Universitet-Yugra (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Ural Ekaterinburg (3-1) against tenth ranked Novosybirsk (2-2) on Friday night. Visiting Ural Ekaterinburg was edged by Novosybirsk in a tough game in Novosybirsk 88-89. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Ural Ekaterinburg. Pavel Podkolzin stepped up with a double-double by scoring 27 points and 14 rebounds (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field) for the winners. Chris Monroe responded with 26 points and 5 assists. Both coaches allowed to play bench players in such tough game. Novosybirsk moved-up to eighth place. Loser Ural Ekaterinburg keeps the third position with one game lost. They share it with Planeta-Univ.. Novosybirsk will meet at home higher ranked Planeta-Univ. (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Ural Ekaterinburg will play against AltajBasket in Barnau and hope to secure a win.
The game in Revda supposed to be also worth to mention about. 5th ranked Rjazan (2-3) played at the court of seventh ranked TEMP-SUMZ Revda (3-2). TEMP-SUMZ Revda smashed Rjazan 86-63. Aleksey Tsvetkov nailed 13 points and 7 rebounds (perfect from the field making all six shots) for the winning side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. TEMP-SUMZ Revda moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Severstal and Ruskon-Mord. Rjazan at the other side dropped to the ninth position with three games lost. TEMP-SUMZ Revda will have a break next round. Rjazan will play at home against Sojuz Zaretchny (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Cherepovec. Local Severstal (3-2) outscored 11th ranked Volgograd (1-4) 77-51 on Saturday night. The best player for the winners was Stanislav Zinchenko who scored 13 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists.

Severstal moved-up to fifth place, which they share with TEMP-SUMZ and Ruskon-Mord. Loser Volgograd dropped to the fourteenth position with four games lost. Severstal will face Dynamo Moscow (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Volgograd will play against Ruskon-Mordovia in Saransk.
