This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 5th ranked Solna Vikings (5-4) to second ranked Sundsvall Dragons (7-2) 85-82 on Tuesday evening. The guests trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 22-17 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Sundsvall Dragons outrebounded Solna Vikings 31-20 including 24 on the defensive glass. It was a good game for American guard Alex Wesby (198-80, college: Temple, agency: R.H.Consultancy) who led his team to a victory with 26 points and 6 rebounds. Icelandic forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82) contributed with 13 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American guard Kelvin Lewis (195-88, college: Houston, agency: Pro One Sports) answered with 21 points for Solna Vikings. Solna Vikings' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sundsvall Dragons have a solid series of four victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader. Solna Vikings at the other side keep the fifth place with four games lost. They share the position with Norrkoping. Sundsvall Dragons are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Nassjo (#12) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Solna Vikings will play against the league's second-placed Boras Basket (#2) and are hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Nassjo's fans can finally celebrate the first win of their team after eight consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat White Eagles (3-6) 80-71. Canadian guard Tut Ruach (188-85) stepped up and scored 20 points and 6 assists for the winners and Szymon Lukasiak chipped in 14 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). The best for the losing side was Serbian center Dragoljub Kitanovic (203-85) with 31 points and 4 assists. Newly promoted Nassjo maintains twelfth place with 1-8 record. White Eagles at the other side, also newcomer in the league, dropped to the ninth position with six games lost. They share it with Jamtland and Eco Orebro. Nassjo will play against league's leader Sundsvall Dragons on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. White Eagles' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Stockholm 08 Stockholm.
