Rozzell
Host teams show no mercy winning all games. The round 25 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

Basketligan top team - BC Lulea (18-4) had no problems winning another game on Friday. This time they crushed fifth ranked Uppsala Basket (11-9) 96-61. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Uppsala Basket. The game without a history. BC Lulea led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 20-of-24 free shots (83.3 percent) during the game. BC Lulea forced 19 Uppsala Basket turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. American guard Brandon Rozzell (188-89, college: VCU) stepped up and scored 20 points, 7 assists and 4 steals for the winners and Canadian forward Yannick Anzuluni (205-87, college: Houghton) chipped in 13 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. At the losing side the former international forward Alexander Lindqvist (205-91, agency: Interperformances) responded with 13 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. BC Lulea maintains first place with 18-4 record. Uppsala Basket at the other side keeps the fifth position with nine games lost. BC Lulea are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Malbas (#9) in Malmo in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Uppsala Basket will play at home against Boras Basket (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 25: Jamtland lost to Sodertalje on the opponent's court 75-81. Norrkoping managed to outperform Malbas in a home game 82-72. Nassjo recorded a loss to Boras on the road 77-69. Sodertalje crushed Umea on its own court 100-78.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 24 points and 11 rebounds by Andre Nilsson of Umea.

Sodertalje - Jamtland 81-75

Very expected game when 7th ranked KFUM Jamtland (10-11) was defeated on the road by third ranked Sodertalje Kings (13-5) 81-75 on Friday. However just six-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 25-16. But KFUM Jamtland won second period 20-13. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Croatian forward Toni Bizaca (202-82, agency: XL Basketball Agency) stepped up and scored 18 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners and American power forward Delvon Johnson (206-89, college: Arkansas) chipped in 15 points and 8 rebounds (perfect from the field making all six shots). Five Sodertalje Kings players scored in double figures. At the losing side American forward Mike Bruesewitz (201-90, college: Wisconsin) responded with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists and Croatian forward Dino Cinac (201-88) scored 22 points and 5 rebounds. Sodertalje Kings have an impressive series of five victories in a row. Defending champion maintains third place with 13-5 record having nine points less than leader BC Lulea. Loser KFUM Jamtland keeps the seventh position with 11 games lost. Sodertalje Kings are looking forward to face Umea (#8) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. KFUM Jamtland will play against the league's second-placed Norrkoping Dolphins and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.

Sodertalje: T.Bizaca 18+6reb+6ast, D.Johnson 15+8reb, N.Spires 13+7reb+2ast, V.Lindstrom 13+4reb+3ast, D.Lejasmeiers 12+1reb+7ast, T.Kurbas 5+5reb+1ast

Norrkoping - Malbas 82-72

Very predictable result when second ranked Norrkoping Dolphins (15-6) defeated at home bottom-ranked Malbas (1-20) 82-72 on Friday. The hosts trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 45-34 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Bosnian forward Dejan Jeftic (197-89, agency: Octagon Europe) stepped up and scored 13 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners and American forward Cole Darling (203-91, college: Wright St., agency: Dynamics Global Management) chipped in 19 points. Four Norrkoping Dolphins players scored in double figures. At the losing side Danish guard Sebastian Petersen (188-95, agency: Dynamics Global Management) responded with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists and American guard Adrian Rodgers (194-92, college: Southern, agency: Three Eye Sports) scored 15 points. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Norrkoping Dolphins maintains second place with 15-6 record having four points less than leader BC Lulea. Malbas lost eleventh consecutive game. They stay dead last with 20 lost games. Norrkoping Dolphins are looking forward to face KFUM Jamtland (#7) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Malbas will play against the league's leader BC Lulea and are hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.
Top scorers:
Norrkoping: C.Darling 19+4reb+1ast, D.Jeftic 13+8reb+4ast, J.Kjellbom 11+4reb, M.Lindquist 11+2reb+1ast, M.Plannthin 10+2ast, A.Medjedoub 8+1reb+1ast

Sodertalje - Umea 100-78

Everything went according to plan when third ranked Sodertalje Kings (13-5) outscored at home 8th ranked Umea (4-18) 100-78 on Tuesday. The game without a history.
