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.

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).

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).
