Basketligan Round 12: Change at the top of the standings - Nov 20, 2012

Basketligan round 12 caused change at the leadership position. Third defeat of league's leader Boras Basket (9-3) against seventh ranked 08 Stockholm (6-5) 109-107 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Boras Basket. The hosts trailed by 9 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 4-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 109-107. 08 Stockholm looked well-organized offensively handing out 30 assists comparing to just 10 passes made by Boras Basket's players. 24 personal fouls committed by Boras Basket helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for the former international guard Olivier Ilunga (185-84) who led his team to a victory with 20 points, 5 assists and 6 steals. American forward Kodi Augustus (203-87, college: Mississippi St., agency: Two Points) contributed with 21 points for the winners. American point guard James Miller (180-79, college: N.Carolina A&T, agency: Higher Vision Sports) replied with 35 points (!!!) and 6 assists for Boras Basket. 08 Stockholm moved-up to sixth place. Boras Basket at the other side dropped to the second position with three games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Sundsvall. Boras Basket will play next round against Uppsala Basket trying to make it back to the top of the standings. 08 Stockholm will try to continue on its current victory against eleventh ranked KFUM Jamtland on the road.
Important game to mention about took place in Solna. Eighth ranked LF Basket (5-6) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 6th ranked Solna Vikings (6-6) 89-87 on Monday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Henry Dugat (183-87, college: Baylor) who helped to win the game recording 22 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists and Christopher Ryan who added 16 points during the contest. The best for the losing side was American forward Donald Johnson (201, college: CSU Bakersfield) with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds. LF Basket maintains eighth position with 5-6 record. Solna Vikings at the other side dropped to the seventh place with six games lost. LF Basket will play against bottom-ranked Nassjo (#12) at home in the next round. Solna Vikings will play against Sodertalje Kings (#3) and hope to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game for Sundsvall Dragons (10-2) which played road game in Uppsala against 4th ranked Uppsala Basket (7-4). Second ranked Sundsvall Dragons managed to get a 9-point victory 81-72. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Uppsala Basket. The winners were led by Alex Wesby who scored that evening 29 points and 6 rebounds. Even 17 points by Johan Jeansson did not help to save the game for Uppsala Basket. Uppsala Basket's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sundsvall Dragons have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader. Loser Uppsala Basket keeps the fourth place with four games lost. They share the position with Norrkoping. Sundsvall Dragons will meet at home Eco Orebro (#10) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Uppsala Basket will play against the league's second-placed Boras Basket (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Nassjo managed to get a second victory, breaking the two-game losing streak. This time newly promoted Nassjo outleveled tenth-ranked KFUM Jamtland 82-62. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 20-point difference suggests that Nassjo is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. The best player for the winners was Tut Ruach who scored 18 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). Newly promoted Nassjo maintains twelfth position with 2-10 record. KFUM Jamtland lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the tenth place with nine games lost. Nassjo's next round opponent will be higher ranked LF Basket (#8) in Lulea and it may be quite challenging game.

In the last game of round 12 Eagles beat Eco Orebro on the road 86-79.


08 - Boras 109-107

Basketligan round 12 caused change at the leadership position. Third defeat of league's leader Boras Basket (9-3) against seventh ranked 08 Stockholm (6-5) 109-107 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Boras Basket. The hosts trailed by 9 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 4-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 109-107. 08 Stockholm looked well-organized offensively handing out 30 assists comparing to just 10 passes made by Boras Basket's players. 24 personal fouls committed by Boras Basket helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for the former international guard Olivier Ilunga (185-84) who led his team to a victory with 20 points, 5 assists and 6 steals. American forward Kodi Augustus (203-87, college: Mississippi St., agency: Two Points) contributed with 21 points for the winners. American point guard James Miller (180-79, college: N.Carolina A&T, agency: Higher Vision Sports) replied with 35 points (!!!) and 6 assists and American-Israeli guard Jason Thomas (191-82, college: American) added 14 points and 10 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) in the effort for Boras Basket. Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. 08 Stockholm moved-up to sixth place. Boras Basket at the other side dropped to the second position with three games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Sundsvall. Boras Basket will play next round against Uppsala Basket trying to make it back to the top of the standings. 08 Stockholm will try to continue on its current victory against eleventh ranked KFUM Jamtland on the road.

Uppsala - Sundsvall 72-81

An interesting game for Sundsvall Dragons (10-2) which played road game in Uppsala against 4th ranked Uppsala Basket (7-4). Second ranked Sundsvall Dragons managed to get a 9-point victory 81-72. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Uppsala Basket. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 27-21. But Uppsala Basket won second period 19-17. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Sundsvall Dragons made 7 blocks. The winners were led by American guard Alex Wesby (198-80, college: Temple, agency: R.H.Consultancy) who scored that evening 29 points and 6 rebounds and the other American import forward Michael Cuffee (195-83, college: Middle Tenn.St.) supported him with 14 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. Four Sundsvall Dragons players scored in double figures. Even 17 points by the former international Johan Jeansson (198-85) did not help to save the game for Uppsala Basket. American forward Keith Wright (203-89, college: Harvard) added 12 points and 6 rebounds. Uppsala Basket's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sundsvall Dragons have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader. Loser Uppsala Basket keeps the fourth place with four games lost. They share the position with Norrkoping. Sundsvall Dragons will meet at home Eco Orebro (#10) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Uppsala Basket will play against the league's second-placed Boras Basket (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Eco Orebro - Eagles 79-86

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both ninth ranked White Eagles and 10th ranked Eco Orebro had identical 3-8 record. But Eco Orebro was not able to use a home court advantage and was defeated by the opponent from Stockholm 86-79. Eco Orebro was ahead by 4 points at the halftime before a 48-37 second half run of White Eagles. 27 personal fouls committed by Eco Orebro helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was Serbian center Dragoljub Kitanovic (203-85) who scored 23 points and 7 rebounds. Serbian guard Nenad Stefanovic (193-85, agency: Beo Basket) chipped in 14 points and 7 assists. Four White Eagles players scored in double figures. At the other side the best for losing team was American-Bosnian point guard Terell Castle (182-72, college: Nicholls St., agency: Court Side) who recorded 20 points and 8 assists and American forward Darris Santee (203-87, college: UNLV) added 19 points respectively. Newly promoted White Eagles maintains ninth position with 4-8 record. Eco Orebro lost third consecutive game. They keep the tenth place with nine games lost. White Eagles' next round opponent will be higher ranked Norrkoping Dolphins (#4) in Norrkoping and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Eco Orebro will play on the road against the league's leader Sundsvall Dragons (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Top scorers:
Eagles: D.Kitanovic 23+7reb+2ast, A.Micovic 14+2reb+2ast, N.Stefanovic 14+2reb+7ast, N.Ljujic 11+5reb+1ast, M.Ljujic 11+3reb, S.Schuszler 6+3reb

Solna - LF Basket 87-89

Important game to mention about took place in Solna. Eighth ranked LF Basket (5-6) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 6th ranked Solna Vikings (6-6) 89-87 on Monday evening. It looked good early as Solna Vikings took an 6-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then LF Basket had a 34-11 second period charge getting the lead and Solna Vikings were not able to take back game control losing it eventually 87-89. LF Basket dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Solna Vikings' 36 and made 19-of-23 charity shots (82.6 percent) during the game. LF Basket forced 19 Solna Vikings turnovers. Strangely Solna Vikings outrebounded LF Basket 41-25 including a 30-19 advantage in defensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Henry Dugat (183-87, college: Baylor) who helped to win the game recording 22 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists and international guard Christopher Ryan (196-90) who added 16 points during the contest. The best for the losing side was American forward Donald Johnson (201, college: CSU Bakersfield) with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds and Greek center Stavros Toutziarakis (210-87, agency: FCM) produced a double-double by scoring 11 points and 18 rebounds. Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. LF Basket maintains eighth position with 5-6 record. Solna Vikings at the other side dropped to the seventh place with six games lost. LF Basket will play against bottom-ranked Nassjo (#12) at home in the next round. Solna Vikings will play against Sodertalje Kings (#3) and hope to get back on the winning track.

Nassjo - Jamtland 82-62

Bottom-ranked Nassjo managed to get a second victory, breaking the two-game losing streak. This time newly promoted Nassjo outleveled tenth-ranked KFUM Jamtland 82-62. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 20-point difference suggests that Nassjo is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. The game without a history. Nassjo led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Nassjo outrebounded KFUM Jamtland 36-21 including a 28-14 advantage in defensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. The best player for the winners was Canadian guard Tut Ruach (188-85) who scored 18 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). American forward William Walker (200-87, college: Bethel, IN, agency: Warren Sports International) chipped in 8 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Walker is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. At the other side the best for losing team was American-Liberian power forward Boakai Lalugba (202-81, college: Bucknell) who recorded 18 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) and Croatian forward Drazen Klaric (204-80) added 14 points and 6 rebounds respectively. Newly promoted Nassjo maintains twelfth position with 2-10 record. KFUM Jamtland lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the tenth place with nine games lost. Nassjo's next round opponent will be higher ranked LF Basket (#8) in Lulea and it may be quite challenging game.
