There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games.

The most exciting game of round 12 in the Basketettan took place in Helsingborg. This derby game ended with only two-point defeat on the road of second-best Malbas (8-4) to eleventh ranked Helsingborg (2-9) 57-55 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Helsingborg made 7 blocks. 24 personal fouls committed by Malbas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Niklas Sellin (197-91) who helped to win the game recording 13 points and 5 rebounds and forward Filip Sjostrom (198-90) who added 12 points during the contest. The best for the losing side was American point guard Dwight Bankhead (181-83) with 16 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals. Malbas' coach Henrik Svensson rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Helsingborg maintains eleventh position in South with 2-9 record. Malbas at the other side keep the second place with four games lost. They share the position with Brahe Basket and Haga Haninge. Helsingborg are looking forward to face higher ranked Brahe Basket (#3) in Huskvarna in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Malbas will play at home against the league's leader IK Eos where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Boras II (7-4) against ninth ranked Jarfalla (5-6) on Saturday night. Visiting Boras II was edged by Jarfalla in a tough game in Jarfalla 67-69. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Boras II. The winners were led by center Leonard Halling (200-92) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 15 points and 20 rebounds and Jean Alix supported him with 24 points and 10 rebounds. Jarfalla's coach Bjorn Hjalmarsson allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even a double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds by forward Mohamed Nefatti (196-84) did not help to save the game for Boras II. Jarfalla moved-up to eighth place in South. Boras II at the other side dropped to the fifth position with four games lost. Jarfalla will play against higher ranked Eskilstuna (#6) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Boras II will play against Sanda Basket in Huskvarna and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Basketettan top team - IK Eos (12-0) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat eighth ranked Talje Knights (4-6) in Lund 114-101. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Talje Knights. The best player for the winners was Adnan Karovic who scored 17 points, 8 assists and 4 steals. IK Eos' coach Axel Wallin used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the other side the best for losing team was Filip Kovacek who recorded 25 points and 6 assists. Undefeated IK Eos have an impressive 12-game winning streak. They maintain first position in South with 12-0 record. Loser Talje Knights dropped to the tenth place with six games lost. IK Eos will meet league's second-placed Malbas in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Talje Knights will play against Hogsbo (#9) in Goteborg and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Sanda Basket (0-12) is still winless. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 12th consecutive match to fourth ranked Brahe Basket (8-4) 88-54. It was a good game for Matthew Cavalieri who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 16 rebounds. Brahe Basket moved-up to second place in South, which they share with Malbas and Haga Haninge. Sanda Basket at the other side still closes the standings with 12 games lost. Brahe Basket's next round opponent will be Helsingborg (#11) at home and are hoping to win another game. Sanda Basket will play against Boras II and hopes to get finally their first victory.
An interesting game took place in Stockholm where 6th ranked Solna Branten (5-5) was upset on the court of ninth ranked Fryshuset (5-7) 65-49 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Solna Branten. Worth to mention a great performance of Nathan Dawit who helped to win the game recording 25 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Fryshuset moved-up to eighth place in North. Loser Solna Branten keeps the sixth position with five games lost. Fryshuset will face higher ranked Orongo Dragons (#7) in Sundsvall in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 12:
In North Umea won against Uppsala KFUM on the opponent's court 78-65. Fryshuset was outscored by Umea in a home game 64-83. Jarva Devils was rolled over Akropol on the road 91-69. Blackeberg defeated Alvik Basket on its own court 87-81.

Very predictable result in Stockholm where third ranked Umea (10-3) smashed 9th ranked Fryshuset (5-7) 83-64 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 5 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 7-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 83-64.

Akropol - Jarva Devils 91-69

Not a big story in a game in Spanga where 11th ranked Jarva Devils (1-11) were rolled over by second ranked Akropol (9-3) 91-69 on Friday. The game without a history. Akropol led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. It was a great shooting night for Akropol especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 60.0 percentage.
