Four SAV Vacallo players scored in double figures.

The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. SAV Vacallo moved-up to second place, which they share with Monthey and Geneve Lions. SAM Massagno lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with seven games lost. SAV Vacallo will face BBC Nyon (#8) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. SAM Massagno will play against Boncourt.

Rather predictable result when fourth ranked Monthey (6-2) defeated at home 7th ranked Neuchatel (3-5) 67-58 on Saturday.

Geneve Lions - BBC Nyon 86-66

Not a big story in a game when 8th ranked BBC Nyon (2-6) was rolled over on the road by second ranked Geneve Lions (6-2) 86-66 on Saturday. It was a very close game until the last quarter, when Geneve Lions's pressure prevailed and they won that period 26-13 extending their advantage to 20 points.

Boncourt - Starwings 86-75

Everything went according to plan when sixth ranked Boncourt (4-4) beat at home bottom-ranked Starwings (1-7) 86-75 on Saturday. The hosts trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 14-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 86-75. Boncourt forced 19 Starwings turnovers.
