The teams have now bigger motivation at this stage of Regular Season. Every game can be crucial and decide about teams' position at the end of Regular Season.

The game in Umea was quite interesting. Fourth ranked Uppsala Basket (16-10) played at the court of 8th ranked Umea (4-24). Uppsala Basket did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 98-80 on Friday. The guests trailed by 4 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 10-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 98-80. Uppsala Basket shot 24 for 37 from the free-throw line, while Umea only scored four points from the stripe. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. 30 personal fouls committed by Umea helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a great evening for swingman Axel Nordstrom (193-91) who led his team to a victory scoring 23 points and 6 rebounds. The former international forward Alexander Lindqvist (205-91, agency: Interperformances) helped adding 19 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. At the losing side center Andre Nilsson (209-90) responded with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 11 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Uppsala Basket have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 16-10 record. Umea lost eighth consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with 24 games lost. Uppsala Basket are looking forward to face league's second-placed Sodertalje Kings at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Umea will play against Malbas (#9) in Malmo and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Second ranked Sodertalje Kings (19-7) crushed at home 7th ranked Nassjo (13-15) by 21 points 93-72, which is the biggest margin this round. It was a quality performance for Croatian forward Toni Bizaca (202-82, agency: XL Basketball Agency) who led the winners and scored 23 points. Davis Lejasmeiers accounted for 14 points and 5 assists. Sodertalje Kings' coach Vedran Bosnic felt very confident that he used 11 players and allowed the starting five to rest. American center Dartaye Ruffin (205-91, college: Drexel, agency: Dynamics Global Management) came up with 16 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for Nassjo in the defeat. Sodertalje Kings have a solid series of four victories in a row. Defending champion maintains second place with 19-7 record having just three points less than leader BC Lulea. Nassjo at the other side keeps the seventh position with 15 games lost. Sodertalje Kings will play against Uppsala Basket (#4) on the road in the next round. Nassjo will play against Norrkoping Dolphins and hopes to get back on the winning track.

In the last two games of round 31 bottom-ranked Malbas lost to Jamtland on the opponent's court 80-95. Norrkoping managed to outperform Boras in a home game 75-70.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 12 points and 4 assists by Tanel Kurbas of Sodertalje.
