Kaitlin
Sowinski
Eighth-ranked Muraltese (3-7) was very close to win a game against fourth ranked Fribourg (7-3) on Saturday. Fribourg managed to secure only three-point victory 78-75. However their fans expected much easier game. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 19-8. But Muraltese won second period 30-20. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Muraltese 45-34 including 18 on the offensive glass. Worth to mention a great performance of American center Kaitlin Sowinski (196-C-86, agency: Two Points, college: Sacred Heart) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 26 points and 11 rebounds. The other American import guard Kirby Copeland (182-85, college: Virginia Tech, agency: LBM Management) contributed with 23 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals for the winners. American guard Takia Starks (173-87, college: Texas A&M) replied with a double-double by scoring 49 points (!!!), 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 steals for Muraltese. Muraltese's coach Mirko Cipolletti rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Fribourg maintains fourth position with 7-3 record. Newly promoted Muraltese dropped to the seventh place with seven games lost. They share the position with Basel. Fribourg are looking forward to face league's second-placed Riva Basket in Riva San Vitale in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Muraltese will play at home against Basel (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
LNA top team - Helios (10-0) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed sixth ranked Pully (4-6) in Vetroz 107-58. International forward Marielle Giroud (180-87, college: Franklin Pierce) had a double-double by scoring 16 points, 16 rebounds, 9 assists and 4 steals to lead the charge for the winners and Caroline Turin chipped in 23 points, 6 assists and 12 steals during the contest. At the losing side American power forward Quiana Porter (187-91, college: St.Peter's) responded with 15 points and 8 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Undefeated Helios have an impressive ten-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 10-0 record. Pully at the other side keeps the sixth place with six games lost. Helios will play against Ovronnaz-Mart. (#3) in Martigny in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Pully will play at home against Hope-GBA in Bernex and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Bellinzona is still unable to win any game. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their tenth consecutive match to third ranked Ovronnaz-Mart. (8-2) 48-45 on Saturday evening. Ildiko Szakacs notched 15 points and 5 rebounds to lead the effort. Even a double-double of 10 points and 16 rebounds by Julie Seabrook did not help to save the game for Bellinzona. Ovronnaz-Mart. moved-up to second place, which they share with Riva Basket. Newly promoted Bellinzona still closes the standings with ten games lost. Ovronnaz-Mart. will meet at home league's leader Helios in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Bellinzona will play against Highflyers (#9) in Luzern and hopes to get finally their first victory.

In the last two games of round 10 Basel were smashed by Hope-GBA on the road 81-61. Riva Basket destroyed Highflyers on its own court 82-39.


Hope-GBA - Basel 81-61

No shocking result in a game when fifth ranked Hope-GBA (6-4) crushed 7th ranked Basel (3-7) in Bernex 81-61 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Hope-GBA. Basel managed to win third quarter 21-12. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Hope-GBA won last quarter 25-6. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Basel to just 6 points in fourth quarter. Hope-GBA forced 24 Basel turnovers. International forward Jalinka Michaux (173-87) notched 29 points and 8 steals (made all of her seven free throws) to lead the effort and international guard Dorothee Studer (169-92) supported her with 11 points and 7 rebounds. Hope-GBA's coach Billy Karageorgakis used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even a double-double of 25 points and 11 rebounds by American center Megan Skouby (193-86, college: Iowa) did not help to save the game for Basel. International forward Marisa Heckendorn (170-84) added 11 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists for lost side. Hope-GBA maintains fifth position with 6-4 record. Loser Basel keeps the seventh place with seven games lost. They share the position with Muraltese. Hope-GBA will meet Pully (#6) on the road in the next round. Basel will play against Muraltese in Muralto and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
