The Regular Season in Basketligan just ended.

The game between Top Four teams took place in Norrkoping. 4th placed host Norrkoping Dolphins (21-12) lost to first ranked Sundsvall Dragons (27-6) 93-85. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Norrkoping Dolphins. The guests trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 24-11 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Sundsvall Dragons made 18-of-20 free shots (90.0 percent) during the game. They shot the lights out from three sinking 13 long-distance shots on high 54.2 percentage.

The best for the losing side was Icelandic guard Pavel Ermolinskij (202-87, agency: I.D.S. Law) with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists. Sundsvall Dragons maintains first place with 27-6 record. Defending champion Norrkoping Dolphins keep the fourth position with 12 games lost. They share it with Boras.
Eleventh ranked White Eagles (7-26) crushed at home 10th ranked Nassjo (7-26) by 21 points 90-69, which is the biggest margin this round. American point guard Brandon McKnight (188-83, college: Purdue) nailed 23 points and 7 assists (went 10 for 10 at the free throw line !!!) for the winning side and Ronaldas Rutkauskas accounted for 15 points and 10 rebounds.

LF Basket - Eco Orebro 94-90

Very expected game in Lulea where 12th ranked Eco Orebro (5-28) was defeated by seventh ranked LF Basket (17-16) 94-90. However just four-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts were ahead by 5 points but lost the second period ending it with a 2-point deficit before their 25-19 run, which allowed them to win the game. The former international guard Christopher Ryan (196-90) nailed 20 points and 5 rebounds for the winning side and American guard Henry Dugat (183-87, college: Baylor) accounted for 13 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists.
