Taylor
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in LNA.

LNA top team - Fribourg (16-3) managed to deliver another win on Sunday. This time they beat ninth ranked Massagno (6-13) 77-66. The game was mostly controlled by Fribourg. Massagno managed to win third quarter 21-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Fribourg won last quarter 19-10. They dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Massagno's 26. It was a good game for American forward Travis Taylor (203-90, college: Xavier) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds. His fellow American import point guard Justin Roberson (186-93, college: La-Monroe) contributed with 16 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. American guard Warren Niles (196-89, college: ORU, agency: Two Points) answered with 26 points for Massagno. Massagno's coach Renato Pasquali rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Fribourg have an impressive series of eight victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 16-3 record. Massagno at the other side keeps the ninth position with 13 games lost. They share it with Lausanne. Fribourg are looking forward to face Starwings (#6) in Basel in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Massagno will play on the road against Neuchatel and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
The game in Basel supposed to be also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Geneve Lions (12-7) played at the court of 6th ranked Starwings (9-10). Geneve Lions smashed Starwings 89-53. American players dominated the game. point guard Kelvin Parker (184-82, college: NW Missouri St.) stepped up and scored 19 points and 8 assists (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners and Chad Timberlake chipped in 19 points (on 9-of-10 shooting from the field). The best for the losing side was power forward Durell Vinson (201-85, college: Wagner) with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 19 rebounds. Geneve Lions moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Neuchatel. Starwings lost their fourth game in a row. They keep the sixth position with ten games lost. Geneve Lions will play against bottom-ranked Winterthur (#11) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Starwings will play against the league's leader Fribourg (#1) and hope to get back on the winning track.
The game in Boncourt was also quite interesting. Third ranked Lugano Tigers (13-7) played at the court of 8th ranked Boncourt (7-12). Lugano Tigers defeated Boncourt 83-72 on Saturday. Tristan Carey nailed 29 points and 6 rebounds for the winning side. Jarvis Williams came up with 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for Boncourt in the defeat. The victory was the fourth consecutive win for Lugano Tigers. They maintain third place with 13-7 record having just two points less than leader Fribourg. Loser Boncourt keeps the eighth position with 12 games lost. Lugano Tigers will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Boncourt will play against Swiss Central (#7) in Luzern and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 21 Swiss Central was beaten by Monthey on the road 100-94. Bottom-ranked Winterthur lost to Neuchatel on its own court 59-75.

Starwings - Geneve Lions 53-89

The game in Basel supposed to be also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Geneve Lions (12-7) played at the court of 6th ranked Starwings (9-10). Geneve Lions smashed Starwings 89-53. The game without a history. Geneve Lions led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot 64.4 percent from the field. American players dominated the game. Point guard Kelvin Parker (184-82, college: NW Missouri St.) stepped up and scored 19 points and 8 assists (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners and guard Chad Timberlake (194-84, college: Fair Dickinson, agency: BeoBasket) chipped in 19 points (on 9-of-10 shooting from the field). Four Geneve Lions players scored in double figures.

Geneve Lions moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Neuchatel. Starwings lost their fourth game in a row. They keep the sixth position with ten games lost.

Monthey - Swiss Central 100-94

No shocking result in a game when second ranked Monthey (14-5) beat at home 7th ranked Swiss Central (8-11) 100-94 on Saturday. However just six-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory.
