Kosice looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. The best player for the winners was the former international guard Milan Ziak (190-88) who scored 16 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Serbian guard Stefan Matovic (203-91, agency: BeoExcell) chipped in 17 points and 9 rebounds.

Simon Krajcovic contributed with 16 points for the winners. The former international power forward Peter Sedmak (207-85, agency: 011 Sports) answered with 19 points (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for Handlova. Handlova's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Levice maintains fourth place with 20-10 record. Newly promoted Handlova dropped to the seventh position with 16 games lost. Levice will play against Iskra Svit (#6) on the road in the next round. Handlova will play against Prievidza and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Sinisa Bilic stepped up and scored 20 points for the winners. The best for the losing side was Kenny Rhymes with 17 points and 4 assists.

Nitra lost thirteenth consecutive game. They stay dead last with 27 lost games. Rieker KN will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
