The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Fribourg (18-4) at the home court on Friday night. Hosts were defeated by second ranked Geneve Lions (17-4) 97-83. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Fribourg. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The guests trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 30-14 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Geneve Lions looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American point guard Kelvin Parker (183-82, college: NW Missouri St.) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points, 11 assists and 4 steals. The former international center Oliver Vogt (209-80) contributed with 22 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. American swingman Edwin Draughan (196-82, college: Yale) replied with 22 points and 5 assists for Fribourg. Geneve Lions have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 17-4 record behind leader Fribourg. Fribourg at the other side still keeps top place with four games lost. Geneve Lions are looking forward to face SAM Massagno (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Fribourg will play against Boncourt (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
The game between seventh ranked Starwings (7-15) and 9th ranked SAM Massagno (4-18) in Basel ended with biggest points difference. Starwings outscored guests from Massagno 94-55. Bahamas forward Jaraun Burrows (203-85, college: IPFW, agency: Warren Sports International) scored 22 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Brandon Jenkins chipped in 15 points, 10 assists and 4 steals during the contest. At the losing side American power forward Clint Chapman (208-89, college: Texas) responded with 22 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Starwings maintains seventh position with 7-15 record. SAM Massagno lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the ninth place with 18 games lost. Starwings will play against BBC Nyon (#8) at home in the next round. SAM Massagno will play against the league's second-placed Geneve Lions having rather not much hope for a victory.

In the last two games of round 22 Neuchatel was smashed by Lugano Tigers on the road 105-86. Monthey won against Boncourt on its own court 73-66.
The most impressive performance of 22th round was 25 points and 13 rebounds by Korvotney Barber of Lugano Tigers.

Starwings - SAM Massagno 94-55

The game between seventh ranked Starwings (7-15) and 9th ranked SAM Massagno (4-18) in Basel ended with biggest points difference. Starwings outscored guests from Massagno 94-55.

Starwings forced 21 SAM Massagno turnovers and outrebounded them 39-20 including a 31-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. Starwings players were unselfish on offense dishing 29 assists comparing to just 5 passes made by SAM Massagno's players. SAM Massagno was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. Bahamas forward Jaraun Burrows (203-85, college: IPFW, agency: Warren Sports International) scored 22 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and American guard Brandon Jenkins (190-85, college: Louisville) chipped in 15 points, 10 assists and 4 steals during the contest. Four Starwings players scored in double figures. At the losing side American power forward Clint Chapman (208-89, college: Texas) responded with 22 points and 5 rebounds and his fellow American import forward Tommy Freeman (195-88, college: Ohio, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) scored 11 points and 4 steals. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Starwings maintains seventh position with 7-15 record. SAM Massagno lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the ninth place with 18 games lost. Starwings will play against BBC Nyon (#8) at home in the next round.

Lugano Tigers - Neuchatel 105-86

No shocking result in a game when third ranked Lugano Tigers (13-9) crushed at home 5th ranked Neuchatel (11-11) 105-86. Neuchatel was ahead by 5 points at the halftime before a 56-32 second half run of Lugano Tigers.

Monthey - Boncourt 73-66

Rather expected game when 6th ranked Boncourt (7-14) lost on the road to fourth ranked Monthey (12-9) 73-66. The hosts were already 15 points ahead after 3 quarters before a 20-12 Boncourt's run in the last quarter cut the lead to 73-66 at the end of the game.
