It's still too early stage of the Regular Season in LNA, but even now we can clearly see the differece between stronger teams and outsiders. Coincidentally all hosts won their games. The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with change at the leadership position, extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Round 3 in LNA means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Chiasso where host SAV Vacallo (3-0) beat league's leader Geneve Lions (2-1) 76-67 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Geneve Lions. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Geneve Lions trailed by 15 points after 3 quarters before a 17-11 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 67-76 at the end of the game. SAV Vacallo made 19-of-22 free shots (86.4 percent) during the game. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was guard Larry O'Bannon (194-83, college: Louisville, agency: Interperformances) who scored 29 points. Guard Rickey Gibson (191-84, college: Stillman) chipped in 12 points and 8 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was guard Kelvin Parker (183-82, college: NW Missouri St.) who recorded 17 points and 6 assists. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. SAV Vacallo have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader. Geneve Lions at the other side dropped to the second place with one game lost. They share the position with 4 other teams. They were replaced at the leadership position by SAV Vacallo. Geneve Lions will play next round against Monthey trying to make it back to the top of the standings. SAV Vacallo will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Boncourt on the road.
Undefeated Lugano Tigers (2-1) recorded its first loss on the court of seventh ranked Monthey. Visitors were edged by Monthey in overtime 86-84. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Lugano Tigers. It was a good game for American point guard John Roberson (180-88, college: Texas Tech) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 9 rebounds, 10 assists and 4 steals. Adnan Hodzic contributed with 16 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American forward Richie Gordon (203-89, college: W.Carolina) answered with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line) for Lugano Tigers. Monthey moved-up to second place, which they share with 4 other teams including defeated Lugano Tigers.
