There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in LNA.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Fribourg. Second ranked Monthey faced 4th placed Fribourg. Guests from Monthey (17-5) defeated host Fribourg (15-7) 82-71. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Fribourg. The game was mostly controlled by Monthey. Fribourg managed to win fourth quarter 21-10. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. American swingman Ian Boylan (197-83, college: CS Northridge) fired a double-double by scoring 14 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. His fellow American import center Sean Finn (212-82, college: Dayton) chipped in 15 points and 9 rebounds. Monthey's coach Petar Aleksic used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American guard Kenny Thomas (191-87, college: Radford) produced 18 points (made all of his eight free throws) for lost side. Monthey have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They maintain second place with 17-5 record having just two points less than leader Lugano Tigers. Fribourg at the other side keeps the fourth position with seven games lost. Monthey are looking forward to face league's leader Lugano Tigers on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Fribourg will play against SAM Massagno and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Leader Lugano Tigers delivered the nineteenth victory. This time they crushed 6th ranked Starwings (9-14) 111-57 in Basel. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Starwings. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international guard Dusan Mladjan (199-86, agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 9 rebounds. Zarko Rakocevic contributed with 23 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Bahamas forward Jaraun Burrows (203-85, college: IPFW, agency: Warren Sports International) answered with 14 points for Starwings. Starwings' coach Danijel Eric gave up on the game allowing to play twelve players seeing no chance for a win. Defending champion maintains first place with 19-3 record. Starwings at the other side keep the sixth position with 14 games lost. Lugano Tigers will play against league's second-placed Monthey at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Starwings will play against SAV Vacallo (#5) in Chiasso and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Massagno supposed to be also quite interesting. Third ranked Geneve Lions (17-6) played at the court of 8th ranked SAM Massagno (3-19). Geneve Lions smashed SAM Massagno 100-54 on Sunday. Babacar Toure stepped up with a double-double by scoring 25 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field) for the winners. At the losing side Travele Jones responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds. SAM Massagno's coach Milutin Nikolic already knew that his team would not have a big chance, so allowed to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Geneve Lions maintains third place with 17-6 record having just one points less than leader Lugano Tigers. SAM Massagno lost their third game in a row. They keep the eighth position with 19 games lost. Geneve Lions will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
