The teams have now bigger motivation at this stage of Regular Season. Every game can be crucial and decide about teams' position at the end of Regular Season.

The game between third ranked Neuchatel (10-7) and fourth ranked Geneve Lions (11-6) was the most important one in the last round on Saturday night. Neuchatel was defeated by Geneve Lions in Geneve 84-68. The game was mostly controlled by Geneve Lions. Neuchatel managed to win third quarter 22-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Geneve Lions dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Neuchatel's 32. It was a great evening for American guard Chad Timberlake (194-84, college: Fair Dickinson, agency: BeoBasket) who led his team to a victory scoring 18 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists. His fellow American import forward Chris Braswell (206-89, college: Charlotte) helped adding 11 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Geneve Lions' coach Jean-Marc Jaumin used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side the former international Brian Savoy (189-92) responded with 14 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Geneve Lions moved-up to third place. Neuchatel at the other side dropped to the fifth position with seven games lost. Geneve Lions are looking forward to face Lugano Tigers (#4) on the road in the next round. Neuchatel will play against the league's second-placed Monthey and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Monthey (13-4) against eighth ranked Boncourt (7-11) on Saturday night. Host Monthey was defeated by Boncourt in Monthey 80-68. It was an exceptional evening for American forward Jarvis Williams (198-89, college: Minn.St.-Mankato) who led the winners and scored 28 points and 7 rebounds. Richard Carter accounted for 24 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. American forward Markel Humphrey (198-86, college: Marshall, agency: Three Eye Sports) came up with 19 points and 7 rebounds for Monthey in the defeat.
