Cuffee
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in Basketligan.

An interesting game for Sundsvall Dragons (26-5) which hosted in Sundsvall 4th placed Boras Basket (21-10). First ranked Sundsvall Dragons had an easy win 111-88. The game without a history. Sundsvall Dragons led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Sundsvall Dragons outrebounded Boras Basket 55-34 including a 46-27 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Michael Cuffee (195-83, college: Middle Tenn.St.) who helped to win the game recording 33 points (!!!), 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Icelandic forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82) contributed with 16 points and 14 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Sundsvall Dragons' coach Peter Oqvist felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Christopher McKnight (201-87, college: Akron) answered with 25 points and 9 rebounds (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field) for Boras Basket. Sundsvall Dragons maintains first place with 26-5 record. Boras Basket at the other side keeps the fourth position with ten games lost. Sundsvall Dragons are looking forward to face league's second-placed Uppsala Basket at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Boras Basket will play against LF Basket in Lulea and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Important game to mention about took place in Stockholm. Eleventh ranked White Eagles (6-25) saved a 2-point victory at home edging higher ranked Norrkoping Dolphins (19-11) 96-94 on Friday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. It was a great evening for Lithuanian forward Ronaldas Rutkauskas (203-92) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 14 rebounds. Agnis Cavars helped adding 16 points and 6 rebounds. At the losing side the former international Mikael Lindquist (193-83, agency: Court Side) responded with 32 points. Newly promoted White Eagles maintains eleventh place with 6-25 record. Defending champion Norrkoping Dolphins keep the fifth position with 11 games lost. White Eagles will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Norrkoping Dolphins will play on the road against 08 Stockholm (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Ninth-ranked Nassjo (7-24) used its home court advantage to challenge third ranked Sodertalje Kings (22-8) on Friday. The visitors from Sodertalje managed to secure only three-point victory 80-77. However their fans expected much easier game. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Nassjo. It was an exceptional evening for Wictor Grenthe who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds (on 10-of-11 shooting from the field). William Walker came up with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds for Nassjo in the defeat. Sodertalje Kings maintains third place with 22-8 record having five points less than leader Sundsvall. Newly promoted Nassjo keeps the ninth position with 24 games lost. They share it with Jamtland. Sodertalje Kings will meet bottom-ranked Eco Orebro (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Nassjo will play against Solna Vikings and hope to secure a win.
The game between second ranked Uppsala Basket (23-8) and 12th ranked Eco Orebro (5-26) in Uppsala ended with biggest points difference. Uppsala Basket outscored guests from Orebro 91-55. Keith Wright fired a double-double by scoring 17 points and 10 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) for the winners.

Uppsala Basket's next round opponent will be league's leader Sundsvall Dragons on the road and it will be for sure the game of the week. Eco Orebro will play against Sodertalje Kings (#3).

In the last two games of round 31 08 beat Solna on the road 88-76. LF Basket won against Jamtland on its own court 89-73.


Solna - 08 76-88

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams when seventh ranked 08 Stockholm (15-16) beat on the road 6th ranked Solna Vikings (19-12) 88-76. The game was mostly controlled by 08 Stockholm. Solna Vikings was better in second period 25-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.

LF Basket - Jamtland 89-73

Rather expected game when 10th ranked KFUM Jamtland (7-24) lost to eighth ranked LF Basket (15-16) in Lulea 73-89. The game was mostly controlled by LF Basket.
