The game between Top Four teams took place in Fribourg. First ranked host Fribourg (11-1) defeated 4th placed SAV Vacallo (9-3) 77-72. The hosts trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 9-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 77-72. Fribourg had a 31-18 advantage in offensive rebounds. It was a great evening for American forward Arizona Reid (196-86, college: High Point) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 12 rebounds. American-Jamaican forward Ronald Yates (201-83, college: St.Peter's) helped adding 8 points and 10 rebounds. American power forward Hakeem Rollins (202-83, college: Washington, agency: Dream Team Management) responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds. Fribourg have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. They maintain first place with 11-1 record. SAV Vacallo at the other side dropped to the second position with three games lost. They share it with Geneve Lions. Fribourg are looking forward to face bottom-ranked SAM Massagno (#10) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. SAV Vacallo will play against Geneve Lions (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Starwings managed to get the second consecutive victory. This time they won against seventh-ranked Neuchatel in Basel 80-65. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 15-point difference suggests that Starwings is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. It was an exceptional evening for Bahamas forward Jaraun Burrows (203-85, college: IPFW, agency: Warren Sports International) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!) and 11 rebounds. Brandon Jenkins accounted for 19 points and 6 assists. Naturalized Senegalese power forward Pape Badji (206-92) came up with 15 points and 8 rebounds for Neuchatel in the defeat. Starwings (3-9) moved-up to eighth place. Neuchatel lost their fourth game in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the seventh position with eight games lost. Starwings will play against BBC Nyon (#9) at home in the next round. Neuchatel will play against Boncourt and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Boncourt was also quite interesting. Second ranked Geneve Lions (9-3) played at the court of 6th ranked Boncourt (5-7). Geneve Lions managed to secure a 9-point victory 89-80 on Friday. The best player for the winners was Juwann James who scored 24 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals (on 11-of-12 shooting from the field). Geneve Lions' coach Ivan Rudez used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Shy Ely produced 21 points and 6 assists for the hosts. The victory was the sixth consecutive win for Geneve Lions. They maintain second place with 9-3 record having just two points less than leader Fribourg, which they share with SAV Vacallo. Boncourt lost their third game in a row. They keep the sixth position with seven games lost. Geneve Lions will meet at home league's second-placed SAV Vacallo in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Boncourt will play against Neuchatel (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Nyon was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Monthey (8-4) played at the court of 8th ranked BBC Nyon (2-10). Monthey managed to secure a 8-point victory 69-61. Bozo Djurasovic orchestrated the victory by scoring 17 points and 5 rebounds. Despite that victory Monthey went down to fourth position due to points difference. BBC Nyon lost their seventh game in a row. They dropped to the ninth place with ten games lost. Monthey's next round opponent will be Lugano Tigers (#5) on the road. BBC Nyon will play against Starwings (#8) in Basel and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game took place in Massagno where higher ranked Lugano Tigers (7-5) were upseton the court of ninth ranked SAM Massagno (2-10) 77-69 on Friday. It was a great evening for Clint Chapman who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 12 rebounds. SAM Massagno's coach Robbi Gubitosa allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. SAM Massagno maintains ninth place with 2-10 record, which they share with BBC Nyon.
