The biggest surprise of round 7 was guest Banvit BK's (6-1) road victory over 3rd placed Karsiyaka (5-2) 68-66 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Karsiyaka. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The guests were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. American guard Keith Simmons (196-85, college: Holy Cross, agency: Interperformances) fired a double-double by scoring 13 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American-Azerbaijani center Charles Davis (205-84, college: Alabama) chipped in 11 points. Banvit BK's coach Orhun Ene used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game.
