An interesting game for Ural Ekaterinburg (14-3) which hosted in Ekaterinburg one of their biggest challengers Novosybirsk (13-5). Second ranked Ural Ekaterinburg had an easy win 83-67. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Novosybirsk. The game was mostly controlled by Ural Ekaterinburg. Novosybirsk managed to win third quarter 23-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Novosybirsk 45-30 including 27 on the offensive glass. Ural Ekaterinburg looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. 25 personal fouls committed by Novosybirsk helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American guard Chris Monroe (191-81, college: G.Washington) orchestrated the victory by scoring 12 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Vitaly Ionov (201-86, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov) contributed with 13 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Ural Ekaterinburg's coach Oleg Okulov used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Center Pavel Podkolzin (226-85) replied with a double-double by scoring 32 points and 12 rebounds for Novosybirsk. Ural Ekaterinburg have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 14-3 record having just -8 point less than leader Univ.Surgut. Newly promoted Novosybirsk keeps the third place with five games lost. Ural Ekaterinburg are looking forward to face AltajBasket (#8) in Barnau in the next round where they are favorite. Novosybirsk will play on the road against Planeta-Univ. (#11) in Ukhta and is hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
Superlaegue top team - Universitet-Yugra (17-2) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed fifth ranked Ruskon-Mordovia (11-8) in Surgut 73-52. Worth to mention a quality performance of Lithuanian point guard Linas Lekavicius (186-84, college: American) who helped to win the game recording 17 points and 6 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) and Anton Ageev who added 10 points during the contest. Universitet-Yugra's coach Sergei Olhov felt very confident that he used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Forward Stanislav Sotnikov (200-85, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov) responded with 15 points and 8 rebounds. Universitet-Yugra have an impressive 13-game winning streak.

Thirteenth-ranked Sojuz Zaretchny (4-15) used its home court advantage to challenge fourth ranked Ataman (13-6) on Saturday. The visitors from Rostov managed to secure only three-point victory 75-72. However their fans expected much easier game. The winners were led by Alexey Kurtsevich who had that evening a double-double by scoring 10 points and 12 rebounds. Even 18 points and 5 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) by Sergei Chudinovskich did not help to save the game for Sojuz Zaretchny. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Ataman have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 13-6 record. Loser Sojuz Zaretchny keeps the thirteenth place with 15 games lost. They share the position with Severstal. Ataman will meet at home league's leader Universitet-Yugra in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Sojuz Zaretchny will play against Ryazan (#6) and hope to secure a win.

The best player for the winners was Evgeny Karpeko who scored 15 points and 8 rebounds. Dynamo Moscow's coach Aleksandr Afanasaev allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Dynamo Moscow moved-up to eighth place, which they share with defeated AltajBasket. Dynamo Moscow's next round opponent will be Severstal (#14) in Cherepovec where they are favorite.
The game between twelfth ranked Volgograd (5-11) and 13th ranked Severstal (4-15) in Volgograd on Saturday ended with biggest points difference. Volgograd outscored guests from Cherepovec 83-56.
