Andrej
Stimac
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Fribourg (12-2) on the court of third ranked Geneve Lions on Wednesday night. Visitors were rolled over by Geneve Lions 102-72. It ended at the same time the 11-game winning streak of Fribourg. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Geneve Lions led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Geneve Lions forced 20 Fribourg turnovers. They shot the lights out from three sinking 16 long-distance shots on high 59.3 percentage. Geneve Lions looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists comparing to just 8 passes made by Fribourg's players. Croatian power forward Andrej Stimac (204-79) scored 25 points and 6 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Senegalese power forward Babacar Toure (205-85) chipped in 16 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. American-Jamaican forward Ronald Yates (201-83, college: St.Peter's) responded with 25 points and 6 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Geneve Lions (10-4) moved-up to second place, which they share with Monthey. Fribourg at the other side still keeps top position with two games lost. Geneve Lions is looking forward to face Starwings (#8) in Basel in the next round where they are favorite. Fribourg will play at home against BBC Nyon (#9) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked SAV Vacallo (9-4) against fifth ranked Lugano Tigers (8-6) on Wednesday night. Host SAV Vacallo was crushed by Lugano Tigers in Chiasso 101-80. Serbian guard Branko Milisavljevic (193-76, agency: Beo Basket) notched a double-double by scoring 17 points and 10 assists to lead the effort and Dusan Mladjan supported him with 21 points and 5 rebounds. Even 25 points by American guard Larry O'Bannon (194-83, college: Louisville, agency: Interperformances) did not help to save the game for SAV Vacallo. Defending champion maintains fifth position with 8-6 record. SAV Vacallo at the other side dropped to the fourth place with four games lost. Lugano Tigers will play against Boncourt (#6) at home in the next round. SAV Vacallo will play against Neuchatel and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Basel supposed to be also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Monthey (10-4) played at the court of 8th ranked Starwings (3-11). Monthey smashed Starwings 109-83 on Wednesday. The best player for the winners was Adnan Hodzic who scored 29 points and 6 rebounds. Joel Fuchs produced 31 points for the hosts. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Monthey moved-up to second place, which they share with Geneve Lions. Loser Starwings keep the eighth position with 11 games lost. They share it with BBC Nyon. Monthey will meet at home bottom-ranked SAM Massagno (#10) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Starwings will play against the league's second-placed Geneve Lions and hope to secure a win.

In the last two games of round 14 Neuchatel won against SAM Massagno on the opponent's court 101-94. Boncourt managed to outperform BBC Nyon in a home game 83-78.
