There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in LNA.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Fribourg (16-3) in Basel on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by eighth ranked Starwings (6-13) 93-83. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Fribourg. Fribourg 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 Bahamas forward Jaraun Burrows (203-85, college: IPFW, agency: Warren Sports International) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 26 points and 12 rebounds. American power forward Justin Dobbins (203-87, college: E.Michigan, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) contributed with 28 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. American swingman Edwin Draughan (196-82, college: Yale) answered with 18 points and 8 assists for Fribourg. Starwings moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Boncourt. Fribourg at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. Starwings is looking forward to face higher ranked Monthey (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Fribourg will play against Neuchatel (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
Bottom-ranked BBC Nyon managed to get a fourth victory, breaking the series of five consecutive loses. This time they won against ninth-ranked SAM Massagno 88-80. It was a great evening for American forward Justin Rutty (200-89, college: Quinnipiac) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 16 rebounds. Jean-Richard Volcy helped adding 17 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. At the losing side American power forward Clint Chapman (208-89, college: Texas) responded with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds. BBC Nyon (4-15) moved-up to ninth place, which they share with defeated SAM Massagno.

Neuchatel will meet league's leader Fribourg on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
