Nemanja
Calasan
Bottom-ranked Winterthur (0-14) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 14th consecutive match to eighth ranked Boncourt (6-9) 98-87 on Friday evening. Boncourt made 24-of-26 free shots (92.3 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of Serbian-Montenegrin center Nemanja Calasan (204-85, college: Purdue, agency: HMS) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points and 22 rebounds and American point guard Richard Carter (180-92, college: Drake, agency: Inception Sports) who added 26 points and 6 assists (made all of his nine free throws !!!) during the contest. Boncourt's coach Nicolas Perot used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side American guard Rashad Whack (190-91, college: Mt.St.Mary's) responded with 45 points (!!!) and 6 rebounds. Boncourt moved-up to seventh place. Winterthur at the other side still closes the standings with 14 games lost. Boncourt are looking forward to face higher ranked Starwings (#6) in Basel in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Winterthur will play at home against Lausanne (#10) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
9th ranked Swiss Central (5-10) was outscored at home by second ranked Fribourg (12-3) with the biggest margin this round 91-69. The winners were led by the former international swingman Dusan Mladjan (198-86, agency: Interperformances) who scored that evening 24 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) and Travis Taylor supported him with 17 points. Even 14 points and 5 assists by Serbian guard Nemanja Kovacevic (194-85) did not help to save the game for Swiss Central. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Fribourg have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader. Swiss Central lost eighth consecutive game. They keep the ninth place with ten games lost. Fribourg will play against Lugano Tigers (#5) at home in the next round. Swiss Central will play against Geneve Lions (#4) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

In the last two games of round 16 Lausanne lost to Neuchatel on the opponent's court 67-80. Lugano Tigers managed to outperform Massagno in a home game 75-67.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 23 points and 11 rebounds by Zoran Krstanovic of Neuchatel.

Neuchatel - Lausanne 80-67

Very expected game when 10th ranked Lausanne (4-11) was defeated on the road by fourth ranked Neuchatel (10-5) 80-67. It looked good early as Lausanne took a 2-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Neuchatel had a 20-16 second period charge getting the lead and Lausanne was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 67-80. Lausanne was plagued by 27 personal fouls down the stretch. The winners were led by Serbian power forward Zoran Krstanovic (204-82) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 23 points and 11 rebounds and naturalized Dominican guard Bryan Colon (181-92) supported him with 16 points. Even 30 points and 4 steals by American guard Karl Cochran (185-92, college: Wofford) did not help to save the game for Lausanne. His fellow American import forward Roger Woods (196-93, college: UALR) added 17 points and 14 rebounds for lost side. Neuchatel have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. Lausanne lost sixth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the tenth position with 11 games lost. Neuchatel will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Lausanne will play on the road against Winterthur (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Massagno at the other side dropped to the eighth position with nine games lost.
