Brian Savoy
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in LNA.

The most important game in the last round took place in Neuchatel between second ranked Monthey (13-5) and fifth ranked Neuchatel (11-7) on Saturday night. Monthey was defeated by Neuchatel in a tough game on the road 84-90. 24 personal fouls committed by Monthey helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was the former international Brian Savoy (189-92) who scored 24 points and 7 rebounds. Serbian power forward Zoran Krstanovic (204-82) chipped in 18 points and 10 rebounds. American forward Markel Humphrey (198-86, college: Marshall, agency: Three Eye Sports) produced a double-double by scoring 24 points and 13 rebounds for the guests. Neuchatel moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Geneve Lions. Monthey at the other side keeps the second position with five games lost. Neuchatel is looking forward to face bottom-ranked Winterthur (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Monthey will play against Swiss Central (#7) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Geneve Lions (11-7) against fourth ranked Lugano Tigers (12-7) on Saturday night. Visiting Geneve Lions were crushed by Lugano Tigers in Lugano 83-64. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Geneve Lions. The game was dominated by American players. Guard Terrell Everett (193-84, college: Oklahoma, agency: Diamond Sports) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Tristan Carey contributed with 24 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Forward Chris Braswell (206-89, college: Charlotte) replied with 8 points and 9 rebounds for Geneve Lions.

Geneve Lions at the other side dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. They share it with Neuchatel. Lugano Tigers will play against Boncourt (#8) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Geneve Lions will play against Starwings (#6) in Basel and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Fribourg delivered the fifteenth victory on Saturday night. This time they crushed 11th ranked Winterthur (2-16) 103-53. Worth to mention a quality performance of Arnaud Cotture who helped to win the game recording 12 points and 8 rebounds. Milton Jennings responded with 8 points and 10 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. Fribourg (15-3) have an impressive seven-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position. Loser Winterthur stay at the bottom place with 16 games lost. Fribourg will meet Massagno (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Winterthur will play against Neuchatel and hope to secure a win.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Basel, where higher ranked Starwings (9-9) were outleveled at home by tenth ranked Massagno (6-12) 87-59. The winners were led by Warren Niles who had that evening a double-double by scoring 28 points and 10 rebounds. Massagno moved-up to ninth place. Starwings lost third consecutive game.

The best stats of 20th round was 27 points and 9 rebounds by Colin Voss of Swiss Central.

Swiss Central - Lausanne 68-58

Even 16 points and 6 rebounds by American guard Anton Wilson (196-94, college: Detroit Mercy) did not help to save the game for Lausanne. His fellow American import forward Brandon Swannegan (206-93, college: Tulsa) added 14 points and 9 rebounds for the guests. Swiss Central have a solid three-game winning streak.
