There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with derby games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Boras Basket as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Boras Basket edged 6th ranked Solna Vikings at home 94-91. Solna Vikings were trailing by 2 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 28-24 charge of Boras Basket, which allowed them to win the game. They made 22-of-27 free shots (81.5 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. 25 personal fouls committed by Solna Vikings helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American point guard James Miller (180-79, college: N.Carolina A&T, agency: Higher Vision Sports) had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 assists (made all of his eight free throws) to lead the charge for the winners and the former international center Michael Palm (209-79, college: W.Washington, agency: R.H.Consultancy) chipped in 22 points and 10 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) during the contest. At the losing side Slovakian power forward Justin Sedlak (205-87, college: Florida Tech) responded with a double-double by scoring 17 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Boras Basket have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Sundsvall. Solna Vikings lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the seventh place with five games lost. Solna Vikings will play next round against KFUM Jamtland trying to get back on the winning streak. Boras Basket will try to continue on its current victory against twelfth ranked Nassjo on the road.
Very significant was Boras Basket's (#2) 94-83 road victory against much higher ranked Sodertalje Kings. It was a key game for the top position in the league. American forward Christopher McKnight (201-87, college: Akron) notched a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds to lead the effort and Michael Palm supported him with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Even 16 points and 9 rebounds by American center Kenneth Simms (203-86, college: Cumberland) did not help to save the game for Sodertalje Kings. Sodertalje Kings' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Boras Basket have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Sundsvall. Sodertalje Kings at the other side dropped to the third place with three games lost. Boras Basket will play against bottom-ranked Nassjo (#12) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Sodertalje Kings will have a break next round.
Basketligan top team - Sundsvall Dragons (8-2) had no problems winning another game on Friday. This time they crushed twelfth ranked Nassjo (1-9) 97-76. Alex Wesby fired 20 points, 6 assists and 4 steals for the winners. William Walker produced 24 points and 7 rebounds for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Sundsvall Dragons have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 8-2 record, which they share with Boras. Newly promoted Nassjo stay at the bottom place with nine games lost. Sundsvall Dragons will meet 08 Stockholm (#6) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Nassjo will play against the league's leader Boras Basket (#1).
A very interesting game took place in Stockholm. It ended with only three-point home defeat of 9th ranked White Eagles (3-7) to seventh ranked 08 Stockholm (5-4) 77-74 on Thursday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Olivier Ilunga who helped to win the game recording 13 points and 5 assists. 08 Stockholm moved-up to sixth place. Newly promoted White Eagles keep the ninth position with seven games lost. 08 Stockholm's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Sundsvall Dragons at home and it may be quite challenging game. White Eagles will play against Uppsala Basket (#4).
10th ranked KFUM Jamtland (3-7) was outscored at home by second ranked Sodertalje Kings (7-3) with the biggest margin this round 95-55 on Friday night. Tobias Borg scored 17 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners. Sodertalje Kings' coach Vedran Bosnic felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Despite that victory Sodertalje Kings went down to third position due to points difference. KFUM Jamtland lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth place with seven games lost. Sodertalje Kings will have a break next round. KFUM Jamtland will play on the road against Solna Vikings (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 10 LF Basket lost to Norrkoping on the opponent's court 77-87. Eco Orebro unfortunately lost to Uppsala in a home game 64-72.

The game was mostly controlled by Boras Basket. Sodertalje Kings was better in second period 22-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Boras Basket made 28-of-30 charity shots (93.3 percent) during the game. Sodertalje Kings were plagued by 27 personal fouls down the stretch. American forward Christopher McKnight (201-87, college: Akron) notched a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds to lead the effort and the former international center Michael Palm (209-79, college: W.Washington, agency: R.H.Consultancy) supported him with 21 points and 11 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws). Four Boras Basket players scored in double figures. Even 16 points and 9 rebounds by American center Kenneth Simms (203-86, college: Cumberland) did not help to save the game for Sodertalje Kings. International point guard Tobias Borg (183-93) added 21 points for lost side. Sodertalje Kings' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Boras Basket have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Sundsvall. Sodertalje Kings at the other side dropped to the third place with three games lost. Boras Basket will play against bottom-ranked Nassjo (#12) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Sodertalje Kings will have a break next round.
