The most exciting game of round 12 in the LNA took place in Geneve. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of second-best Geneve Lions (9-3) to fourth ranked SAV Vacallo (9-3) 83-82 in the game for the second place. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Geneve Lions. Geneve Lions were trailing by 11 points at halftime but managed to get 5-point lead after three quarters before a 21-15 charge of SAV Vacallo, which allowed them to win the game. They made 27-of-29 free shots (93.1 percent) during the game, while Geneve Lions only scored nine points from the stripe. 25 personal fouls committed by Geneve Lions helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Rickey Gibson (191-G-84, college: Stillman) who helped to win the game recording 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists and Serbian forward Ivan Kuburovic (203-81) who added 23 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American guard Tony Brown (193-79, college: Arkansas St.) with 21 points and 4 assists. Geneve Lions' coach Ivan Rudez rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. SAV Vacallo moved-up to second place, which they share with defeated Geneve Lions. SAV Vacallo is looking forward to face Boncourt (#6) at home in the next round. Geneve Lions will play against Monthey (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Monthey (8-4) against fifth ranked Lugano Tigers (7-5) on Sunday night. Visiting Monthey was defeated by Lugano Tigers in Lugano 75-64. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Monthey. The winners were led by American forward Korvotney Barber (201-87, college: Auburn, agency: Pro One Sports) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 21 points and 14 rebounds and Branko Milisavljevic supported him with 14 points and 11 assists. Even 22 points and 8 rebounds by Bosnian forward Adnan Hodzic (203-88, college: Lipscomb, agency: Pro One Sports) did not help to save the game for Monthey. Defending champion maintains fifth position with 7-5 record. Monthey at the other side dropped to the fourth place with four games lost. Lugano Tigers will play against Neuchatel (#7) on the road in the next round. Monthey will play against Geneve Lions and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Starwings managed to get the second consecutive victory on Sunday night. This time they outleveled eighth-ranked BBC Nyon in Basel 107-82. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 25-point difference suggests that Starwings is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. The best player for the winners was Jaraun Burrows who had a double-double by scoring 21 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Marvin Owens who recorded 32 points. Starwings (3-9) moved-up to eighth place. BBC Nyon lost seventh consecutive game.

LNA top team - Fribourg (11-1) added another victory to their record. This time they beat ninth ranked SAM Massagno (2-10) 80-75. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a good game for Arizona Reid who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists. Fribourg have an impressive ten-game winning streak.

The game in Neuchatel was also quite interesting. 6th ranked Boncourt (5-7) played at the court of seventh ranked Neuchatel (4-8). Neuchatel did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 70-53 on Sunday. Worth to mention a great performance of Jules Aw who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds. Boncourt's coach Antoine Petitjean tested ten players seeing no chance for a win. Newly promoted Neuchatel maintains seventh position with 4-8 record. Boncourt lost third consecutive game. They keep the sixth place with seven games lost. Neuchatel will face higher ranked Lugano Tigers (#5) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

Starwings - BBC Nyon 107-82
