There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most interesting game of round 9 in the Basketettan was only two-point a home defeat of 4th placed Haga Haninge (6-3) to third ranked Brahe Basket (7-2) 86-84. Brahe Basket forced 20 Haga Haninge turnovers. Jamaican center Hugh Robinson (202-83) stepped up and scored 17 points and 9 rebounds for the winners and naturalized Nigerian forward Kevin Ukhagbe (200-85, college: Bethany, KS) chipped in 14 points and 9 rebounds.

Very important is a home loss of third ranked Umea (6-2) against ninth ranked Orongo Dragons (4-5) on Sunday night. Host Umea was edged by Orongo Dragons in a tough game at home 52-54. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Umea. Forward Markus Williams (198-93) nailed 15 points and 9 rebounds for the winning side and Daniel Eliasson accounted for 21 points.

Uppsala KFUM - Akropol 63-94

Very expected game when 10th ranked KFUM Uppsala (3-6) was crushed at home by fifth ranked Akropol (5-3) 94-63 on Sunday. The game without a history.

BG Lulea - LF Future 65-74

Very predictable result when third ranked LF Future (7-2) defeated on the road 12th ranked BG Lulea (1-8) 74-65 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 6 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 74-65.

Sanda - Malbas 39-98

Bottom-ranked Sanda Basket (0-9) is still winless. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was.

There was a small surprise when tenth ranked Talje Knights (2-5) edged on the road 8th ranked Jarfalla (3-5) 72-70 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 6-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 72-70.
