Coincidentally all hosts won their games.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Lulea. First ranked BC Lulea faced 3rd placed Boras Basket. Host BC Lulea (17-3) defeated guests from Boras (11-10) 82-71.

Canadian forward Yannick Anzuluni (205-87, college: Houghton) chipped in 11 points and 11 rebounds. BC Lulea's coach Peter Oqvist used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Icelandic point guard Jakob Sigurdarson (192-82, college: Birm.Southern) produced 22 points for the guests. BC Lulea have an impressive series of eight victories in a row. They maintain first place with 17-3 record. Boras Basket lost third consecutive game. They keep the third position with ten games lost.

American forward Cole Darling (203-91, college: Wright St., agency: Dynamics Global Management) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 7 rebounds.

American center Dartaye Ruffin (205-91, college: Drexel, agency: Dynamics Global Management) answered with 16 points and 7 rebounds for Nassjo.

Norrkoping Dolphins will play against Uppsala Basket (#5) on the road in the next round. Nassjo will play against the league's leader BC Lulea and hopes to get back on the winning track.
