Milton
Jennings
Winterthur can celebrate finally their first win this season after 14 consecutive losses. They used home court advantage to defeat Lausanne (4-12) 66-64 on Sunday. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 21-9. But Lausanne won second period 19-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was American forward Milton Jennings (206-90, college: Clemson, agency: Court Side) who had a double-double by scoring 21 points and 12 rebounds. His fellow American import swingman Shane Southwell (201-92, college: Kansas St.) chipped in 19 points and 4 assists. American guard Anton Wilson (196-94, college: Detroit Mercy) produced 28 points for the guests. Winterthur maintains eleventh place with 1-14 record. It was Lausanne's seventh loss in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the tenth position with 12 games lost. Winterthur are looking forward to face higher ranked Starwings (#5) in Basel in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Lausanne will play on the road against Boncourt (#7) and is hoping to win this game.
Leader Fribourg delivered the thirteenth victory. This time they beat 5th ranked Lugano Tigers (9-7) 88-75. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Lugano Tigers. American forward Travis Taylor (203-90, college: Xavier) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. Natan Jurkovitz contributed with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners. American center Eric Williams (206-84, college: Wake Forest, agency: Octagon Europe) answered with 21 points and 9 rebounds for Lugano Tigers. Fribourg (13-3) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place. Lugano Tigers at the other side dropped to the sixth position with seven games lost. Fribourg will play against Neuchatel (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Lugano Tigers will play against the league's second-placed Monthey and hope to get back on the winning track.
The game in Massagno was also quite interesting. Second ranked Monthey (12-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Massagno (5-10). Monthey defeated Massagno 82-71 on Sunday. Jordan Heath stepped up with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Quinton Day responded with 22 points and 7 rebounds. The victory was the eighth consecutive win for Monthey. They maintain second place with 12-2 record behind leader Fribourg. Loser Massagno dropped to the ninth position with ten games lost. Monthey will meet at home Geneve Lions (#4) in the next round. Massagno will play against Geneve Lions (#4) and hope to secure a win.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Geneve, where 4th placed Geneve Lions (9-5) lost at home to ninth ranked Swiss Central (6-10) 64-74. Marco Lehmann nailed 25 points and 6 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) for the winning side. Geneve Lions' coach Jean-Marc Jaumin rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Swiss Central moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Boncourt. Geneve Lions at the other side keep the fourth position with five games lost. Swiss Central will have a break next round. Geneve Lions will play on the road against the league's second-placed Monthey (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
