The round 18 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

Basketligan top team - Sundsvall Dragons (15-2) managed to deliver another win on Friday. This time they beat eighth ranked LF Basket (8-9) 102-93. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of LF Basket. LF Basket trailed by 24 points after 3 quarters before a 30-15 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 93-102 at the end of the game. Sundsvall Dragons made 18-of-21 free shots (85.7 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists comparing to just 7 passes made by LF Basket's players. American guard Alex Wesby (198-80, college: Temple, agency: R.H.Consultancy) scored 21 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists to lead the charge for the winners and the other American import guard Michael Cuffee (195-83, college: Middle Tenn.St.) chipped in 25 points and 5 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was American guard Henry Dugat (183-87, college: Baylor) with 27 points and 4 steals. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Sundsvall Dragons have an impressive 12-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 15-2 record. LF Basket at the other side keeps the eighth place with nine games lost. Sundsvall Dragons are looking forward to face KFUM Jamtland (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. LF Basket will play against Boras Basket and is hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
Third ranked Boras Basket (13-5) crushed at home 9th ranked KFUM Jamtland (5-13) by 25 points 100-75, which is the biggest margin this round. American forward Christopher McKnight (201-87, college: Akron) notched a double-double by scoring 15 points and 17 rebounds to lead the effort and James Miller supported him with 26 points and 5 assists. Even 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists by American guard Darryl Hudson (195-85, college: Howard) did not help to save the game for KFUM Jamtland. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Boras Basket moved-up to second place, which they share with Uppsala. KFUM Jamtland at the other side keeps the ninth position with 13 games lost. Boras Basket will play against LF Basket (#8) in Lulea in the next round where they are favorite. KFUM Jamtland will play at home against the league's leader Sundsvall Dragons and hopes to get back on the winning track.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 18: bottom-ranked Nassjo was destroyed by Uppsala on the opponent's court 95-71. Eco Orebro unfortunately lost to Solna in a home game 73-90. Sodertalje managed to beat Eagles on the road 72-62. Norrkoping defeated 08 on its own court 90-82.



Uppsala - Nassjo 95-71

Very expected game when 12th ranked Nassjo (3-15) was crushed on the road by third ranked Uppsala Basket (13-5) 95-71. The game without a history. Uppsala Basket led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Uppsala Basket forced 20 Nassjo turnovers. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. The former international Johan Jeansson (198-85) notched 20 points (perfect from the field making all six shots) to lead the effort and American forward Keith Wright (203-89, college: Harvard) supported him with 18 points and 5 rebounds. Even 17 points by Canadian guard Tut Ruach (188-85) did not help to save the game for Nassjo. Forward Kristian Ternell (199-92) added 11 points and 6 rebounds. Four Nassjo players scored in double figures. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Uppsala Basket moved-up to second place, which they share with Boras. Newly promoted Nassjo stay at the bottom position with 15 games lost. They share it with Eco Orebro. Uppsala Basket will play against 08 Stockholm (#7) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Nassjo will play against Eco Orebro (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Eco Orebro - Solna 73-90

Very predictable result when fifth ranked Solna Vikings (11-7) defeated on the road 11th ranked Eco Orebro (3-15) 90-73. The game was mostly controlled by Solna Vikings. Eco Orebro was better in third quarter 16-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 17-of-22 charity shots (77.3 percent) during the game. Solna Vikings players were unselfish on offense dishing 24 assists. American guard Kelvin Lewis (195-88, college: Houston, agency: Pro One Sports) notched 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the effort and Greek center Stavros Toutziarakis (210-87, agency: FCM) supported him with 23 points. Four Solna Vikings players scored in double figures. Solna Vikings' coach Aris Likogiannis used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 21 points and 8 rebounds by American forward Darris Santee (203-87, college: UNLV) did not help to save the game for Eco Orebro. American-Bosnian point guard Terell Castle (182-72, college: Nicholls St., agency: Court Side) added 13 points and 9 assists. Solna Vikings have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Norrkoping. Eco Orebro lost ninth consecutive game. They keep the eleventh position with 15 games lost. They share it with Nassjo. Solna Vikings will play against White Eagles (#10) in Stockholm in the next round where they are favorite.

Eagles - Sodertalje 62-72

Not a big story in a game in Stockholm where 10th ranked White Eagles (4-14) were defeated by sixth ranked Sodertalje Kings (10-5) 72-62. It looked good early as White Eagles took an 1-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Sodertalje Kings had a 15-12 second period charge getting the lead and White Eagles were not able to take back game control losing it eventually 62-72. Sodertalje Kings made 17-of-19 charity shots (89.5 percent) during the game. American center Kenneth Simms (203-86, college: Cumberland) notched 20 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks to lead the effort and Bosnian forward Toni Bizaca (202-82) supported him with 20 points and 5 rebounds. Even 14 points and 5 rebounds by Serbian guard Nenad Stefanovic (193-85, agency: Beo Basket) did not help to save the game for White Eagles. American guard Carlton Guyton (193-90, college: Kent St.) added 16 points and 5 rebounds. White Eagles' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sodertalje Kings maintains sixth position with 10-5 record. White Eagles lost sixth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keep the tenth place with 14 games lost. Sodertalje Kings will play against league's leader Sundsvall Dragons at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. White Eagles will play against Solna Vikings (#5) and hope to get back on the winning track.
