Darrius
Garrett
LNA top team - Fribourg (17-3) managed to deliver another win on Wednesday. This time they beat fifth ranked Neuchatel (10-10) 73-58. Neuchatel was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Worth to mention a quality performance of American power forward Darrius Garrett (205-90, college: Richmond) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 18 points, 11 rebounds and 5 blocks and the other American import swingman Edwin Draughan (196-82, college: Yale) who added 12 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists during the contest. Naturalized Senegalese forward Jules Aw (200-86) responded with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 14 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Fribourg maintains first position with 17-3 record. Newly promoted Neuchatel keeps the fifth place with ten games lost. Fribourg are looking forward to face SAM Massagno (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Neuchatel will play against BBC Nyon (#8) and is hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
The game in Nyon supposed to be also worth to mention about. Second ranked Geneve Lions (15-4) played at the court of 8th ranked BBC Nyon (4-16). Geneve Lions smashed BBC Nyon 108-83. The winners were led by Croatian power forward Andrej Stimac (204-79) who scored that evening 18 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists and Tony Brown supported him with 23 points (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Even 25 points and 9 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) by American forward Justin Rutty (200-89, college: Quinnipiac) did not help to save the game for BBC Nyon. BBC Nyon's coach Rodrigue M'Baye gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Geneve Lions have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 15-4 record having just three points less than leader Fribourg. BBC Nyon at the other side keeps the eighth place with 16 games lost. They share the position with SAM Massagno. Geneve Lions will play against Lugano Tigers (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. BBC Nyon will play against Neuchatel (#5) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

In the last two games of round 20 Starwings lost to Monthey on the opponent's court 65-81. Lugano Tigers managed to outperform SAM Massagno in a home game 89-85.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 26 points and 9 rebounds by Jonathan Dubas of Monthey.



Monthey - Starwings 81-65

Rather expected game when 6th ranked Starwings (6-14) were defeated on the road by fourth ranked Monthey (11-9) 81-65. The game without a history. Monthey led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 25-of-31 charity shots (80.6 percent) during the game. Monthey forced 19 Starwings turnovers. Starwings were plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. The winners were led by international Jonathan Dubas (202-91) who scored that evening 26 points and 9 rebounds and international forward Cedric Mafuta (192-84) supported him with 16 points and 6 rebounds. Even a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds by American power forward Justin Dobbins (203-87, college: E.Michigan, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) did not help to save the game for Starwings. Bahamas forward Jaraun Burrows (203-85, college: IPFW, agency: Warren Sports International) added 12 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for the guests. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Monthey maintains fourth position with 11-9 record. Starwings at the other side dropped to the seventh place with 14 games lost. Monthey will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Starwings will play on the road against Boncourt (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

BBC Nyon - Geneve Lions 83-108

The game in Nyon supposed to be also worth to mention about. Second ranked Geneve Lions (15-4) played at the court of 8th ranked BBC Nyon (4-16). Geneve Lions smashed BBC Nyon 108-83. The game without a history. Geneve Lions led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot 62.3 percent from the field. Geneve Lions shot the lights out from three nailing 15 long-distance shots on high 68.2 percentage. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 31 assists comparing to just 16 passes made by BBC Nyon's players. The winners were led by Croatian power forward Andrej Stimac (204-79) who scored that evening 18 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists and American guard Tony Brown (193-79, college: Arkansas St.) supported him with 23 points (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Five Geneve Lions players scored in double figures. Even 25 points and 9 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) by American forward Justin Rutty (200-89, college: Quinnipiac) did not help to save the game for BBC Nyon. His fellow American import swingman Marvin Owens (196-86, college: Northwood) added 26 points (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) for the hosts. BBC Nyon's coach Rodrigue M'Baye gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Geneve Lions have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 15-4 record having just three points less than leader Fribourg. BBC Nyon at the other side keeps the eighth place with 16 games lost.

Lugano Tigers - SAM Massagno 89-85

Very predictable result when third ranked Lugano Tigers (12-8) defeated at home 9th ranked SAM Massagno (4-16) 89-85. However just four-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. Lugano Tigers made 37-of-42 charity shots (88.1 percent) during the game, while SAM Massagno only scored fourteen points from the stripe. SAM Massagno was plagued by 29 personal fouls down the stretch. The winners were led by American forward Korvotney Barber (201-87, college: Auburn, agency: Pro One Sports) who scored that evening 24 points and 9 rebounds (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!) and Serbian guard Branko Milisavljevic (193-76, agency: Beo Basket) supported him with 21 points and 7 assists. Even 21 points and 8 rebounds by American power forward Clint Chapman (208-89, college: Texas) did not help to save the game for SAM Massagno. His fellow American import point guard Jamelle Barrett (180-88) added 21 points, 5 assists and 4 steals for the guests. Five Lugano Tigers and four SAM Massagno players scored in double figures. SAM Massagno's coach Robbi Gubitosa rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Lugano Tigers have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains third position with 12-8 record having five points less than leader Fribourg. SAM Massagno at the other side dropped to the eighth place with 16 games lost. They share the position with BBC Nyon. Lugano Tigers will play against league's second-placed Geneve Lions on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. SAM Massagno will play against the league's leader Fribourg (#1) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
