He could not help the Oklahoma City Thunder (35-12) to beat the Los Angeles Lakers (21-26). Sefolosha recorded 7 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 34 minutes on the court. The Oklahoma City Thunder lost 96-105 on the road to the Lakers. Sefolosha has relatively good stats this year: 7.1ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.7apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 55.0%, 3FGP: 40.4% and FT: 82.9% in the 46 games he played so far. He played for the Swiss senior national team two years ago.

Brunner was not able to help Trenkwalder RE (8-9) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his very good performance Trenkwalder RE was defeated 75-69 at home by the higher-ranked Umana Venezia (#7). Brunner was the second best scorer with 15 points. He also added 8 rebounds. Brunner belongs to league's best rebounders and is ranked #3. He has very reliable stats this season: 11.6ppg, 7.9rpg, 1.6apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 54.1%, 3FGP: 25.0% and FT: 67.3%. Brunner is a naturalized American.

Despite Kessens' very good performance the Longwood was crushed 88-60 on the road by the High Point University. He scored 22 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Kessens' overall stats this season are: 3.2ppg and 3.1rpg.
