Lamar Grimes
Bottom-ranked Svit managed to get a fifth victory, breaking the two-game losing streak on Saturday night. This time they won against fourth-ranked Nova Ves 95-89. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Nova Ves won fourth quarter 31-27. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. It was a good game for American guard Lamar Grimes (182-83, college: Indiana St.) who led his team to a victory with 28 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. The other American import swingman Sean Smith (201-85, college: N.Illinois) contributed with 23 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American point guard Maurice Acker (178-87, college: Marquette) replied with 34 points (!!!) for Nova Ves. Svit maintains ninth position with 5-17 record. Nova Ves lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the fourth place with 11 games lost. Svit are looking forward to face league's second-placed Levice at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Nova Ves will play against Inter Bratislava and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Extraliga top team - Komarno (16-5) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat sixth ranked Inter Bratislava (10-12) 85-76. Worth to mention a quality performance of American forward Kevin Thompson (205-89, college: Morgan St.) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 12 points and 15 rebounds and Chris Lowe who added 16 points and 5 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was the former international power forward Martin Rancik (204-78, college: Iowa St.) with a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Komarno maintains first position with 16-5 record. Inter Bratislava at the other side keeps the sixth place with 12 games lost. Komarno will play against Handlova (#8) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Inter Bratislava will play against Nova Ves and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Prievidza was also quite interesting. Third ranked Nitra (14-8) played at the court of 5th ranked Prievidza (10-11). Nitra defeated Prievidza 98-85 on Saturday. The winners were led by Branislav Tomek who scored that evening 16 points and 9 rebounds (perfect from the field making all six shots). Even 31 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists by Joseph Harris did not help to save the game for Prievidza. Nitra maintains third position with 14-8 record having just one points less than leader Komarno. Defending champion Prievidza keeps the fifth place with 11 games lost. Nitra will meet SKP Banska Bystrica (#7) on the road in the next round. Prievidza will have a break next round.
The game between second ranked Levice (15-6) and 8th ranked Handlova (6-14) in Levice ended with biggest points difference. Levice outscored guests from Handlova 95-64. The best player for the winners was Brian Addison who had a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field). The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Levice have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 15-6 record behind leader Komarno. Handlova at the other side keeps the eighth place with 14 games lost. Levice's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Svit (#9) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Handlova will play against the league's leader Komarno.
