Jules Aw
Eighth-ranked BBC Nyon (3-13) used its home court advantage to challenge sixth ranked Neuchatel (8-8) on Saturday. The visitors from Neuchatel managed to secure only two-point victory 77-75. However their fans expected easier game. BBC Nyon was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized Senegalese forward Jules Aw (200-86) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 14 rebounds. American power forward Thomas Coleman (205-88, college: N.Carolina A&T) contributed with 12 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. American forward Justin Rutty (200-89, college: Quinnipiac) replied with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 11 rebounds for BBC Nyon. Neuchatel have an impressive five-game winning streak. Newly promoted Neuchatel maintains sixth position with 8-8 record. BBC Nyon lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth place with 13 games lost. They share the position with SAM Massagno. Neuchatel are looking forward to face higher ranked Monthey (#4) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

Very important is a road loss of third ranked Monthey (10-6) against fourth ranked SAV Vacallo (11-5) on Saturday night. Visiting Monthey was defeated by SAV Vacallo in Chiasso 90-76.
