The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Taby Basket as it allowed them to take a leadership position in North. Taby Basket smashed 4th placed LF Future at home 101-60. The game without a history. Taby Basket led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 70 of its points in the paint compared to LF Future's 46. They outrebounded LF Future 36-22 including a 27-15 advantage in defensive rebounds. Taby Basket looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by LF Future's players. The best player for the winners was swingman Erik Andersson (197-87) who had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 14 rebounds. Forward Jon Jonsson (201-87, college: Oklah.Christian) chipped in 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. point guard Adam Ronnqvist (181-90) produced 20 points and 8 rebounds for the guests. LF Future's coach Jim Enbom gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Taby Basket (14-2) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. LF Future at the other side dropped to the third place with four games lost. LF Future will play next round against Fryshuset trying to get back on the winning streak. Taby Basket will try to continue on its current victory against ninth ranked Orongo Dragons in Sundsvall.
Top ranked IK Eos (13-3) recorded its third loss on the court of fourth ranked Jarfalla. Visitors were defeated by Jarfalla 74-70. Center Jean Alix (200-79) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 11 rebounds. Leonard Halling contributed with 23 points for the winners. Guard Gustav Nystrom (189-89, college: Hope) answered with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists for IK Eos. The victory was the eighth consecutive win for Jarfalla. They moved-up to third place in South. IK Eos lost their third game in a row. They still keep top position with three games lost. Jarfalla will play against Hogsbo (#10) in Goteborg in the next round and are hoping to win another game. IK Eos will play at home against Sanda Basket (#12) in Huskvarna and hope to get back on the winning track.
Leader Akropol delivered the fourteenth victory on Saturday night. This time they beat 9th ranked Orongo Dragons (6-11) 73-65 in Spanga. Christian Koutras stepped up with a triple-double by scoring 15 points, 11 rebounds, 18 assists and 4 steals for the winners. William Gutenius responded with 16 points and 9 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The victory was the tenth consecutive win for Akropol. Despite that victory Akropol went down to second position (North) due to points difference. Orongo Dragons lost their third game in a row. They keep the ninth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with Fryshuset. Akropol will meet Alvik Basket (#8) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game.

Bottom-ranked Sanda Basket (0-17) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 97-56 loss to eleventh ranked Helsingborg (5-11) in Huskvarna. Niklas Sellin nailed a double-double by scoring 21 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists for the winning side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Helsingborg maintains eleventh place in South with 5-11 record. Sanda Basket lost their seventeenth game in a row. They still closes the standings with 17 games lost. Helsingborg's next round opponent will be higher ranked Talje Knights (#8) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

The game in Uppsala supposed to be also quite interesting. Second ranked Taby Basket (14-2) played at the court of 6th ranked KFUM Uppsala (8-9). Taby Basket smashed KFUM Uppsala 92-67 on Sunday. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of KFUM Uppsala. The best player for the winners was Erik Andersson who scored 22 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. The victory was the fifth consecutive win for Taby Basket. They keep a position of North leader. Loser KFUM Uppsala dropped to the seventh place with nine games lost. Taby Basket will face Orongo Dragons (#9) in Sundsvall in the next round and are hoping to win another game. KFUM Uppsala will play on the road against KFUM Blackebergs in Vallingby and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
