The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, favorites losing the games, games ending by tiny margin and even winless team recording their first victory.

LNA round 7 caused change at the leadership position. Second defeat of league's leader SAV Vacallo (5-2) against fifth ranked Monthey (5-2) 63-56 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of SAV Vacallo. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But SAV Vacallo won fourth quarter 19-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Serbian-Bosnian guard Feliks Kojadinovic (197-79) who helped to win the game recording 11 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals. International Jonathan Dubas (202-91) contributed with 13 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Serbian forward Ivan Kuburovic (203-81) answered with 16 points and 8 rebounds for SAV Vacallo. Monthey have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Geneve Lions and SAV Vacallo. SAV Vacallo will play next round against SAM Massagno trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Monthey will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked Neuchatel at home.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Fribourg as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Fribourg defeated 6th ranked Boncourt at home 76-68. It was a great evening for American-Jamaican forward Ronald Yates (201-83, college: St.Peter's) who led his team to a victory scoring 20 points. Edwin Draughan helped adding 16 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. At the losing side American swingman Shy Ely (194-87, college: Evansville, agency: Merit Sports) responded with 17 points and 5 rebounds. Fribourg (6-1) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. As mentioned above they took over a top position. Boncourt lost third consecutive game.

Geneve Lions will meet at home BBC Nyon (#8) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Lugano Tigers will play against the league's leader Fribourg and hope to secure a win.
