Kaitlin
Sowinski
Seventh-ranked Basel (4-9) used its home court advantage to challenge fifth ranked Fribourg (9-4) on Saturday. The visitors from Fribourg managed to secure only one-point victory 82-81. However their fans expected easier game. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Basel won third quarter 25-21. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Fribourg looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. 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 31 points and 12 rebounds. Her fellow American import guard Kirby Copeland (182-85, college: Virginia Tech, agency: LBM Management) contributed with 14 points, 5 rebounds and 11 assists for the winners. American forward Michelle Harrison (190-87, college: Utah) answered with 24 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for Basel. Fribourg moved-up to third place, which they share with Hope-GBA. Basel at the other side keeps the seventh position with nine games lost. They share it with Muraltese. Fribourg is looking forward to face league's leader Helios in Vetroz in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Basel will play on the road against Bellinzona (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Ovronnaz-Mart. (8-5) against sixth ranked Pully (6-7) on Friday night. Host Ovronnaz-Mart. was defeated by Pully in Martigny 80-70. Tamara Detraz (178-94) stepped up and scored 26 points for the winners and Quiana Porter chipped in 15 points and 14 rebounds. Pully's coach Jean Fernandez allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. At the losing side international center Katia Clement (183-85) responded with 16 points and 6 rebounds. Pully maintains sixth place with 6-7 record. Ovronnaz-Mart. lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the fifth position with five games lost. Pully will play against league's second-placed Riva Basket in Riva San Vitale in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Ovronnaz-Mart. will play at home against Highflyers in Luzern and hopes to get back on the winning track.
LNA top team - Helios (13-0) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed eighth ranked Muraltese (4-9) in Muralto 102-43. Marielle Giroud nailed a double-double by scoring 26 points and 14 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) for the winning side. Mary Durojaye came up with 10 points and 8 rebounds for Muraltese in the defeat. Muraltese's coach Mirko Cipolletti gave up on the game allowing to play twelve players seeing no chance for a win. Undefeated Helios have an impressive series of thirteen victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 13-0 record. Newly promoted Muraltese dropped to the seventh position with nine games lost. They share it with Basel. Helios will meet Fribourg (#4) on the road in the next round. Muraltese will play against Hope-GBA in Bernex and hope to secure a win.

In the last two games of round 13 Hope-GBA smashed Highflyers on the road 89-60. Riva Basket destroyed Bellinzona on its own court 83-48.

Ovronnaz-Mart. - Pully 70-80

Very important is a home loss of third ranked Ovronnaz-Mart. (8-5) against sixth ranked Pully (6-7) on Friday night. Host Ovronnaz-Mart. was defeated by Pully in Martigny 80-70. The game was mostly controlled by Pully. Ovronnaz-Mart. was better in third quarter 20-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Ovronnaz-Mart. to just 7 points in first quarter. Pully forced 21 Ovronnaz-Mart. turnovers. Ovronnaz-Mart. was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. Tamara Detraz (178-94) stepped up and scored 26 points for the winners and American power forward Quiana Porter (187-91, college: St.Peter's) chipped in 15 points and 14 rebounds. Pully's coach Jean Fernandez allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. At the losing side international center Katia Clement (183-85) responded with 16 points and 6 rebounds and naturalized Portuguese forward Cesaria Ambrosio (180-95) scored 12 points and 8 rebounds. Four Ovronnaz-Mart. players scored in double figures. Pully maintains sixth place with 6-7 record. Ovronnaz-Mart. lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the fifth position with five games lost. Pully will play against league's second-placed Riva Basket in Riva San Vitale in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Ovronnaz-Mart. will play at home against Highflyers in Luzern and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Highflyers - Hope-GBA 60-89

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked Hope-GBA (9-4) crushed bottom-ranked Highflyers (1-12) in Luzern 89-60 on Saturday. The game without a history. Hope-GBA led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Highflyers to just 6 points in second quarter. Hope-GBA dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Highflyers' 34 and made 18-of-22 free shots (81.8 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Highflyers 40-25 including a 31-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. International forward Jalinka Michaux (173-87) nailed 27 points and 5 rebounds (made all of her seven free throws) for the winning side and international guard Dorothee Studer (169-92) accounted for 13 points and 8 rebounds. Four Hope-GBA players scored in double figures. Hope-GBA's coach Billy Karageorgakis felt very confident using 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American center Chelsea Snyder (198-90, college: VCU) came up with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 16 rebounds and 5 blocks and international guard Vanessa Dorestant (170-92) added 11 points respectively for Highflyers in the defeat. Hope-GBA have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Fribourg. Highflyers lost eleventh consecutive game. They stay at the bottom position with 12 games lost. They share it with Bellinzona. Hope-GBA will meet at home Muraltese (#8) in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Highflyers will play against Ovronnaz-Mart. in Martigny.
