Ermolinskij
The most important game in the last round took place in Norrkoping between third ranked Boras Basket (16-8) and sixth ranked Norrkoping Dolphins (14-8) on Friday night. Boras Basket was defeated by Norrkoping Dolphins in a tough game on the road 92-99. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Boras Basket. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 3-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 99-92. Norrkoping Dolphins dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Boras Basket's 34 and made 18-of-21 free shots (85.7 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Boras Basket 52-22 including a 20-2 advantage in offensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of Icelandic guard Pavel Ermolinskij (202-87, agency: I.D.S. Law) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 19 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists and the former international center Joakim Kjellbom (213-79, college: N.Arizona) who added 16 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was the former international center Michael Palm (209-79, college: W.Washington, agency: R.H.Consultancy) with 22 points and 9 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). Defending champion maintains sixth position with 14-8 record. Boras Basket at the other side dropped to the fourth place with eight games lost. Norrkoping Dolphins are looking forward to face higher ranked Sodertalje Kings (#3) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Boras Basket will play against Eco Orebro and is hoping to win this game.
Bottom-ranked Nassjo managed to get a fourth victory, breaking the seven-game losing streak. This time newly promoted Nassjo edged eleventh-ranked Eco Orebro 70-69. The winners were led by American forward William Walker (200-87, college: Bethel, IN, agency: Warren Sports International) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 13 points and 12 rebounds and Tut Ruach supported him with 16 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Even a double-double of 13 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists by American-Bosnian point guard Terell Castle (182-72, college: Nicholls St., agency: Court Side) did not help to save the game for Eco Orebro. Newly promoted Nassjo maintains twelfth position with 4-20 record. Eco Orebro at the other side dropped to the tenth place with 19 games lost. They share the position with Eagles. Nassjo 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. Eco Orebro will play against Boras Basket (#4) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Basketligan top team - Sundsvall Dragons (21-3) managed to deliver another win on Friday. This time they beat tenth ranked White Eagles (5-19) in Stockholm 93-83. The best player for the winners was Hlynur Baeringsson who had a double-double by scoring 16 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). At the other side the best for losing team was Gerald Riley who recorded 17 points. Sundsvall Dragons have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 21-3 record. White Eagles lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keep the tenth place with 19 games lost. They share the position with Eco Orebro. Sundsvall Dragons will meet bottom-ranked Nassjo (#12) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. White Eagles' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Stockholm to the arena 08 Stockholm.

In the last game of round 24 08 lost to Sodertalje on the opponent's court 71-75.
