The teams have now bigger motivation at this stage of Regular Season. Every game can be crucial and decide about teams' position at the end of Regular Season.

The most exciting game of round 15 in the LNA took place in Pully. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of 6th ranked Pully (6-9) to seventh ranked Muraltese (6-9) 61-59 in the game for the sixth place. Pully was trailing by 4 points at halftime but managed to get 3-point lead after three quarters before a 14-9 charge of Muraltese, which allowed them to win the game. They also forced 25 Pully turnovers. It was a great evening for American center Kaitlin Sowinski (196-86, college: Sacred Heart, agency: Two Points) who led her team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 16 rebounds and 6 blocks. The former international forward Judit Jakab (178-89) helped adding 17 points. The best for the losing side was American power forward Quiana Porter (187-91, college: St.Peter's) with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 20 rebounds. Pully's coach Jean Fernandez rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Muraltese moved-up to sixth place, which they share with defeated Pully. Muraltese is looking forward to face higher ranked Ovronnaz-Mart. (#3) in Martigny in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
