Humphrey
There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Second Stage in LNA.

Sixth-ranked Starwings (10-12) used its home court advantage to challenge Monthey (15-7) in Basel on Sunday. The visitors from Monthey managed to secure only three-point victory 79-76. However their fans expected easier game. Starwings trailed by 14 points after 3 quarters before a 26-15 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 76-79 at the end of the game. 24 personal fouls committed by Starwings helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American forward Markel Humphrey (198-86, college: Marshall, agency: Three Eye Sports) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points and 5 rebounds. Naturalized French Mikael Maruotto (201-91) contributed with 21 points for the winners. American guard Chris Jones (188-93, college: Angelo St.) replied with 35 points (!!!) for Starwings. Monthey is looking forward to face Lugano Tigers at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Starwings will play against Fribourg (#1) and are hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
An interesting game for Fribourg (19-3) which played road game in Geneve against Geneve Lions (13-9). Fribourg managed to get a 8-point victory 72-64. American players dominated the game. Forward Travis Taylor (203-90, college: Xavier) had a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Troran Brown chipped in 16 points during the contest. Forward Chris Braswell (206-89, college: Charlotte) responded with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 15 rebounds. Fribourg will play against Starwings (#6) in Basel in the next round where they are favorite. Geneve Lions will play on the road against Neuchatel and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Swiss Central (9-12) and Massagno (7-14), which took place in Massagno. Swiss Central lost to Massagno in a road game 67-76 on Sunday. Warren Niles notched 18 points to lead the effort. Massagno's coach Renato Pasquali used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 18 points and 7 rebounds by Colin Voss did not help to save the game for Swiss Central. Massagno will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Swiss Central will play against Boncourt (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 2
In Places 1-6 Neuchatel was smashed by Lugano Tigers on the road 82-57.
In Places 7-11 Boncourt won against Winterthur on its own court 84-70.
The most impressive performance of 2nd round was 13 points and 7 rebounds by Brandon Taylor of Massagno.

Lugano Tigers - Neuchatel 82-57

No shocking result in a game when Lugano Tigers (15-7) crushed at home Neuchatel (13-9) 82-57 on Sunday. The game was mostly controlled by Lugano Tigers. Neuchatel managed to win fourth quarter 17-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Lugano Tigers made 17-of-20 free shots (85.0 percent) during the game. Lugano Tigers outrebounded Neuchatel 39-23 including 25 on the defensive glass. American guard Tristan Carey (193-91, college: Longwood) notched 29 points to lead the effort and naturalized Senegalese power forward Jules Aw (202-86) supported him with 12 points and 9 rebounds. Lugano Tigers' coach Nicola Brienza felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 16 points and 7 rebounds by Serbian power forward Zoran Krstanovic (204-82) did not help to save the game for Neuchatel. The former international power forward David Ramseier (202-87) added 12 points and 7 rebounds for the guests. Lugano Tigers will meet Monthey (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Neuchatel will play against Geneve Lions and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Places 7-11
Boncourt - Winterthur 84-70

Rather expected game when Winterthur (2-19) lost on the road to Boncourt (8-13) 84-70 on Sunday. The game was mostly controlled by Boncourt. Winterthur managed to win fourth quarter 20-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Boncourt dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Winterthur's 32. American players dominated also this game. Forward Jarvis Williams (198-89, college: Minn.St.-Mankato) notched a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead the effort and point guard Richard Carter (180-92, college: Drake, agency: Inception Sports) supported him with 21 points and 4 assists. Boncourt's coach Nicolas Perot used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 23 points and 7 rebounds by swingman Shane Southwell (201-92, college: Kansas St.) did not help to save the game for Winterthur. Forward Milton Jennings (206-90, college: Clemson, agency: Court Side) added 12 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for the guests. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Boncourt will meet Swiss Central (#7) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Winterthur will play against Lausanne (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Massagno - Swiss Central 76-67

Serbian guard Nemanja Kovacevic (194-85) added 6 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists for the guests. Massagno will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
