The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 5 rounds. The round 28 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

Basketligan top team - Sundsvall Dragons (24-4) added another victory to their record on Friday. This time they beat eighth ranked LF Basket (11-16) 89-83. The hosts trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 27-19 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Sundsvall Dragons made 16-of-18 free shots (88.9 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a quality performance of American guard Michael Cuffee (195-83, college: Middle Tenn.St.) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 30 points and 12 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) and Icelandic point guard Jakob Sigurdarson (192-82, college: Birm.Southern) who added 30 points and 6 assists during the contest. At the losing side American guard Henry Dugat (183-87, college: Baylor) responded with a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Sundsvall Dragons have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 24-4 record. LF Basket at the other side keeps the eighth place with 16 games lost. Sundsvall Dragons are looking forward to face KFUM Jamtland (#9) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. LF Basket will play against 08 Stockholm and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
10th ranked White Eagles (5-23) were outscored at home by fourth ranked Sodertalje Kings (19-7) with the biggest margin this round 110-69. The winners were led by international point guard Tobias Borg (183-93) who scored that evening 27 points and Alexander Lindqvist supported him with 12 points and 9 rebounds. Sodertalje Kings' coach Vedran Bosnic felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 19 points and 9 assists by American guard Carlton Guyton (193-90, college: Kent St.) did not help to save the game for White Eagles. Sodertalje Kings have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 19-7 record. White Eagles lost eighth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keep the tenth place with 23 games lost. They share the position with Nassjo and Eco Orebro. Sodertalje Kings will play against league's second-placed Uppsala Basket at home in the next round and it may be the game of the week. White Eagles will play against Solna Vikings (#6) and hope to get back on the winning track.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 28: Jamtland lost to Boras on the opponent's court 84-93. 08 managed to outperform Nassjo in a home game 87-76. Eco Orebro recorded a loss to Solna on the road 67-81.



Boras - Jamtland 93-84

Very expected game when 9th ranked KFUM Jamtland (7-21) was defeated on the road by fourth ranked Boras Basket (20-8) 93-84. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But KFUM Jamtland won third quarter 22-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Boras Basket had a 29-16 advantage in offensive rebounds. The winners were led by American point guard James Miller (180-79, college: N.Carolina A&T, agency: Higher Vision Sports) who scored that evening 29 points and 6 assists and Norwegian-American guard Terrence Oglesby (188-88, college: Clemson) supported him with 23 points. Even 20 points and 9 rebounds by American-Liberian power forward Boakai Lalugba (202-81, college: Bucknell) did not help to save the game for KFUM Jamtland. American swingman Tim Whitworth (198-81, college: Drexel) added 19 points and 8 rebounds for lost side. Four Boras Basket and five KFUM Jamtland players scored in double figures. Boras Basket have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. KFUM Jamtland lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with 21 games lost. Boras Basket will play against bottom-ranked Nassjo (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

08 - Nassjo 87-76

Very predictable result when seventh ranked 08 Stockholm (13-15) defeated at home bottom-ranked Nassjo (5-23) 87-76. The game was mostly controlled by 08 Stockholm. Nassjo was better in fourth quarter 26-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. 08 Stockholm players were unselfish on offense dishing 23 assists. The winners were led by American forward Kodi Augustus (203-87, college: Mississippi St., agency: Two Points) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 23 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 blocks and guard Nils Hedstrom (190-83) supported him with 16 points and 5 assists. Even a double-double of 27 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals by American forward William Walker (200-87, college: Bethel, IN, agency: Warren Sports International) did not help to save the game for Nassjo. The former international forward Kim Palmqvist (200-88) added 17 points for lost side.

Solna - Eco Orebro 81-67

Not a big story in a game when 11th ranked Eco Orebro (5-23) was defeated on the road by sixth ranked Solna Vikings (18-10) 81-67. It looked good early as Eco Orebro took an 2-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Solna Vikings had a 25-12 second period charge getting the lead and Eco Orebro was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 67-81. Solna Vikings players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. The winners were led by Greek center Stavros Toutziarakis (210-87, agency: FCM) who scored that evening 19 points and 5 rebounds and American guard Kelvin Lewis (195-88, college: Houston, agency: Pro One Sports) supported him with 18 points. Solna Vikings' coach Aris Likogiannis allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 14 points and 6 rebounds by guard Brandon Barton (192-88) 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 5 assists for lost side. Five Eco Orebro players scored in double figures.
