Karl Cochran
The Regular Season in LNA just ended. Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

The most important game in the last round took place in Lausanne between second ranked Monthey (14-6) and ninth ranked Lausanne (7-13) on Saturday night. Monthey was defeated by Lausanne in a tough game on the road 73-80. Monthey trailed by 16 points after 3 quarters before a 25-16 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 73-80 at the end of the game. Lausanne forced 23 Monthey turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists comparing to just 7 passes made by Monthey's players. American guard Karl Cochran (185-92, college: Wofford) had a double-double by scoring 25 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the charge for the winners and the other American import forward Jordan Loveridge (198-93, college: Utah) chipped in 16 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. Lausanne's coach Randoald Dessarzin used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Croatian guard Pankracije Barac (196-81, agency: Court Side) responded with 29 points (made all of his seventeen free throws !!!). Lausanne moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Boncourt. Monthey at the other side keeps the second position with six games lost.
LNA top team - Fribourg (17-3) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed sixth ranked Starwings (9-11) 90-63. International forward Natan Jurkovitz (199-95) notched 14 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) to lead the effort and Travis Taylor supported him with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Even 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists by American guard Chris Jones (188-93, college: Angelo St.) did not help to save the game for Starwings. Fribourg have an impressive nine-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 17-3 record. Starwings lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the sixth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with Swiss Central.
Tenth-ranked Massagno (6-14) gave a tough game to fifth ranked Neuchatel (13-7) on Saturday. Neuchatel managed to secure only two-point victory 74-72. However their fans expected much easier game.

Massagno's coach Renato Pasquali rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Neuchatel moved-up to third place, which they share with Lugano Tigers and Geneve Lions.
