There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most crucial game of the last round was another loss of top-ranked IK Eos (13-2) on the court of fourth ranked Boras II on Sunday night. Visitors were defeated by Boras II 81-73. The hosts trailed by 4 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 8-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 81-73. Boras II forced 21 IK Eos turnovers. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Mohamed Nefatti (196-84) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points and 14 rebounds and forward Richard Maraker (198-84, college: CS Stanislaus) who added 13 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 6 steals during the contest. At the losing side guard Adnan Karovic (187-88) responded with 15 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Boras II maintains fourth position in South with 9-5 record. IK Eos at the other side still keep top place with two games lost. Boras II will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. IK Eos will play on the road against Jarfalla and are hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Umea. First ranked Akropol (13-3) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 3rd ranked Umea (11-5) 81-79 on Sunday evening. The winners were led by forward Richard Hartmann (201-89) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 25 points and 16 rebounds and Athanasios Kalpakas supported him with 12 points and 13 rebounds. Even 26 points and 5 assists by guard Johan Pierre (187-89, agency: Interperformances) did not help to save the game for Umea. Umea's coach Jesper Gustavsson rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Akropol have an impressive nine-game winning streak. They maintain first position in North with 13-3 record. Newly promoted Umea keeps the third place with five games lost. Akropol will play against Orongo Dragons (#9) in Sundsvall in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Umea will have a break next round.
A very close game took place in Solna between KFUM Blackebergs and Solna Branten. Fifth ranked KFUM Blackebergs (9-5) got a very close victory on the road over 7th ranked Solna Branten (6-8). KFUM Blackebergs managed to escape with a 2-point win 72-70 on Sunday evening. Charles Carayol fired 21 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Jesper Eliasson produced a double-double by scoring 10 points and 18 rebounds for lost side. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. KFUM Blackebergs maintains fifth position in North with 9-5 record. Loser Solna Branten keeps the seventh place with eight games lost. They share the position with Alvik Basket. KFUM Blackebergs will meet Alvik Basket (#7) in the next round. Solna Branten will play against Alvik Basket in Bromma and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very interesting game took place in Sundsvall. It ended with only three-point home defeat of 8th ranked Orongo Dragons (6-10) to sixth ranked KFUM Uppsala (8-8) 83-80 on Saturday evening. KFUM Uppsala have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain sixth position in North with 8-8 record. Orongo Dragons at the other side dropped to the ninth place with ten games lost. KFUM Uppsala's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Taby Basket at home and it may be quite challenging game. Orongo Dragons will play against the league's leader Akropol (#1) in Spanga.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Malbas (10-6) against ninth ranked Talje Knights (7-7) on Sunday night. Visiting Malbas were defeated by Talje Knights in a tough game in Talje 66-71. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Malbas. Worth to mention a great performance of Jesper Andersson who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 6 rebounds. Talje Knights moved-up to seventh place in South. Loser Malbas keep the third position with six games lost. Talje Knights will face league's second-placed Brahe Basket in Huskvarna in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 16:
In North Alvik Basket won against Fryshuset on the opponent's court 64-62. Taby managed to outperform BG Lulea in a home game 81-77. BG Lulea managed to beat Jarva Devils on the road 81-72.

Taby - BG Lulea 81-77

Very predictable result when second ranked Taby Basket (12-2) defeated at home 11th ranked BG Lulea (2-13) 81-77 on Saturday.
