SAM Massagno - SAV Vacallo 81-86

Very expected game when 10th ranked SAM Massagno (3-14) was defeated at home by third ranked SAV Vacallo (12-5) 86-81 on Wednesday. The game without a history.

Starwings - Boncourt 86-64

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams in Basel where eighth ranked Starwings (5-12) outscored 7th ranked Boncourt (6-11) 86-64 on Wednesday.
