The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets.

The most exciting game of round 30 in the Basketligan took place in Boras. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 6th ranked Boras Basket (14-13) to second ranked Sodertalje Kings (18-7) 70-67 on Tuesday evening. The guests trailed by 3 points at the halftime before their 33-27 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Sodertalje Kings made 18-of-21 free shots (85.7 percent) during the game. It was a good game for Croatian forward Toni Bizaca (202-82, agency: XL Basketball Agency) who led his team to a victory with 19 points and 9 rebounds. American power forward Delvon Johnson (206-89, college: Arkansas) contributed with 12 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. American guard Jerome Seagears (185-92, college: UNLV, agency: Diamond Sports) replied with 17 points and 7 rebounds for Boras Basket. Sodertalje Kings have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains second position with 18-7 record having five points less than leader BC Lulea. Boras Basket at the other side dropped to the fifth place with 13 games lost. They share the position with Jamtland. Sodertalje Kings are looking forward to face Nassjo (#7) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Boras Basket will play against Norrkoping Dolphins in Norrkoping and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game for BC Lulea (21-6) which hosted in Lulea second-best Norrkoping Dolphins (17-8). First ranked BC Lulea managed to get a 11-point victory 81-70. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Norrkoping Dolphins. American guard Brandon Rozzell (188-89, college: VCU) had a double-double by scoring 16 points, 5 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Adam Ronnqvist chipped in 21 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) during the contest. BC Lulea's coach Peter Oqvist allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. The best for the losing side was the former international center Joakim Kjellbom (212-79, college: N.Arizona) with a double-double by scoring 26 points and 10 rebounds. BC Lulea maintains first position with 21-6 record. Norrkoping Dolphins at the other side dropped to the third place with eight games lost. BC Lulea will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Norrkoping Dolphins will play at home against Boras Basket and hope to get back on the winning track.
The game between seventh ranked Nassjo (13-14) and 8th ranked Umea (4-23) in Nassjo on Tuesday ended with biggest points difference. Nassjo outscored guests from Umea 97-56. Dartaye Ruffin notched a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the effort. Nassjo's coach Felix Alonso felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 20 points by Egal Saleman did not help to save the game for Umea. Nassjo maintains seventh position with 13-14 record. Umea lost seventh consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with 23 games lost. Nassjo will meet league's second-placed Sodertalje Kings on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Umea will play against Uppsala Basket (#4) and hope to secure a win.

In the last game of round 30 Jamtland was beaten by Uppsala on the road 84-76.
