There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

There was a change at the LNA leadership position after last games. Round 5 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Geneve Lions (3-2). They were edged by fourth ranked Fribourg (4-1) 83-81 on Saturday night. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Geneve Lions won third quarter 23-17. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Fribourg won last quarter 27-26. Americans were the main players on the court. Forward Arizona Reid (196-86, college: High Point) stepped up and scored 17 points and 9 rebounds for the winners and swingman Edwin Draughan (196-82, college: Yale) chipped in 17 points and 5 rebounds. Guard Tony Brown (193-79, college: Arkansas St.) responded with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Geneve Lions' coach Ivan Rudez rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Fribourg have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with SAV Vacallo. Geneve Lions at the other side dropped to the third place with two games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. They were replaced at the leadership position by SAV Vacallo. Geneve Lions will play next round against Starwings trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Fribourg will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked BBC Nyon on the road.

The most impressive stats of the last round was 33 points (!!!) and 12 rebounds by Justin Rutty of BBC Nyon.

Neuchatel - SAM Massagno 90-75

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both eighth ranked Neuchatel and 7th ranked SAM Massagno had identical 1-3 record. This time Neuchatel used a home court advantage and beat the opponent from Massagno 90-75 on Saturday night. SAM Massagno was trailing by 4 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 27-11 charge of Neuchatel, which allowed them to win the game.

Monthey - Starwings 88-73

Rather predictable result when sixth ranked Monthey (3-2) defeated at home bottom-ranked Starwings (0-5) 88-73 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Monthey. Starwings was better in third quarter 24-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Monthey looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. Bosnian forward Adnan Hodzic (203-88, college: Lipscomb, agency: Pro One Sports) stepped up and scored 26 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists (on 12-of-14 shooting from the field) for the winners and American swingman Denver Holmes (193-89, college: Evansville) chipped in 18 points.

Monthey moved-up to third place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser Starwings still closes the standings with five games lost. Monthey will face SAM Massagno (#9) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Starwings will play against Geneve Lions and hope to get finally their first victory.
Top scorers:
Monthey: A.Hodzic 26+8reb+4ast, D.Holmes 18+3reb+2ast, B.Savoy 10+3reb, J.Dubas 10+9reb, F.Kojadinovic 9+1reb+8ast, C.Mafuta 6+3reb+3ast

BBC Nyon - Boncourt 83-79

There was an upset when higher ranked Boncourt (3-2) was defeated on the road by ninth ranked BBC Nyon (2-3) 83-79 on Saturday. Boncourt was trailing by 6 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 22-17 charge of BBC Nyon, which allowed them to win the game. They dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Boncourt's 32. They outrebounded Boncourt 35-22 including a 25-13 advantage in defensive rebounds. Boncourt was plagued by 25 personal fouls down the stretch. Americans were the main players on the court also this time. Forward Justin Rutty (200-89, college: Quinnipiac) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!) and 12 rebounds for the winners and swingman Marvin Owens (196-86, college: Northwood) chipped in 24 points and 6 assists. Swingman Shy Ely (194-87, college: Evansville, agency: Merit Sports) responded with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists and guard Jackson Capel (191-87, college: Evangel) scored 20 points and 4 assists. Four Boncourt players scored in double figures. Boncourt's coach Antoine Petitjean tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. BBC Nyon moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Neuchatel. Loser Boncourt dropped to the third position with two games lost. BBC Nyon will face league's second-placed Fribourg at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Boncourt will play against Lugano Tigers and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Top scorers:
BBC Nyon: J.Rutty 33+12reb+1ast, M.Owens 24+4reb+6ast, E.Tsonga 8+3reb+2ast, S.Zivkovic 5+1reb+3ast, G.Lanisse 5+4reb+1ast, L.Vallotton 4
