Hye-Jin Park
Coincidentally all hosts won their games. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games.

Round 8 in Basketligan means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Sundsvall where host Sundsvall Dragons (6-2) beat league's leader Sodertalje Kings (6-2) 62-58 on Friday evening. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Sodertalje Kings. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 4 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 4-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 62-58. Sundsvall Dragons forced 20 Sodertalje Kings turnovers. The best player for the winners was American guard Alex Wesby (198-80, college: Temple, agency: R.H.Consultancy) who scored 24 points and 5 rebounds. Icelandic forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82) chipped in 12 points and 8 rebounds. Sundsvall Dragons' coach Peter Oqvist used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American center Kenneth Simms (203-86, college: Cumberland, agency: JEMsports) produced a double-double by scoring 10 points and 10 rebounds for the guests. Sundsvall Dragons have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Sodertalje and Boras. Sodertalje Kings will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest and make it back to the top of the standings. Sundsvall Dragons will try to continue on its current victory against fifth ranked Solna Vikings on the road.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Boras Basket as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Sodertalje Kings) loss. Boras Basket defeated 9th ranked LF Basket at home 92-79. American point guard James Miller (180-79, college: N.Carolina A&T, agency: Higher Vision Sports) orchestrated the victory by scoring 29 points and 6 assists. Terrence Oglesby contributed with 23 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. American guard Henry Dugat (183-87, college: Baylor) replied with 27 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists for LF Basket. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Sodertalje and Sundsvall. LF Basket at the other side dropped to the eighth place with five games lost. They share the position with Jamtland and Eagles. LF Basket will play next round against KFUM Jamtland trying to get back on the winning streak. Boras Basket will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Solna Vikings (5-3) against tenth ranked White Eagles (3-5) on Thursday night. Visiting Solna Vikings were defeated by White Eagles in a tough game in Stockholm 67-75. Worth to mention a great performance of Dragoljub Kitanovic who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 5 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). Roope Ahonen responded with 15 points. White Eagles moved-up to eighth place, which they share with LF Basket and Jamtland. Loser Solna Vikings dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. They share it with Uppsala. White Eagles will meet bottom-ranked Nassjo (#12) on the road in the next round. Solna Vikings will play against the league's second-placed Sundsvall Dragons (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Bottom-ranked Nassjo (0-8) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 84-82 loss to eleventh ranked Eco Orebro (2-6) in Orebro. The winners were led by Darris Santee who had that evening a double-double by scoring 25 points and 11 rebounds (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field). Eco Orebro maintains eleventh position with 2-6 record. Newly promoted Nassjo still closes the standings with eight games lost. Eco Orebro's next round opponent will be higher ranked 08 Stockholm (#7) on the road and it may be quite challenging game. Nassjo will play against White Eagles (#10) in Stockholm and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Norrkoping. Local Norrkoping Dolphins (5-4) outscored 8th ranked KFUM Jamtland (3-5) 87-65 on Friday night. The best player for the winners was Martin Ringstrom who scored 14 points and 9 rebounds. Norrkoping Dolphins' coach Paul Burke felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion moved-up to sixth place. Loser KFUM Jamtland keeps the eighth position with five games lost. Norrkoping Dolphins will have a break next round. KFUM Jamtland will play on the road against LF Basket (#9) in Lulea and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
