The most important game in the last round took place in Usak between second ranked Darussafaka (9-3) and fourth ranked Usak (9-3) on Wednesday night. Darussafaka was defeated by Usak in a tough game on the road 71-77. Darussafaka trailed by 18 points after 3 quarters before a 27-15 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 71-77 at the end of the game. They outrebounded Darussafaka 47-32 including a 32-21 advantage in defensive rebounds. 25 personal fouls committed by Darussafaka helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was American forward Eric Buckner (208-90, college: Georgia St., agency: David Lee services) who had a double-double by scoring 12 points and 14 rebounds. The other American import forward Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) chipped in 15 points and 9 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was swingman Cihan Amasyali (191-83) who recorded 17 points and 8 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Usak moved-up to third place, which they share with defeated Darussafaka. Usak is looking forward to face Baskent Genclik (#16) in Ankara in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Darussafaka's supporters also look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Istanbul Istanbulspor.
Leader Maliye Milli delivered the tenth victory. This time they crushed bottom-ranked Izmir BSB (0-12) 97-75. It was a good game for forward Recai Ozturk (198-82) who led his team to a victory with 18 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Hakan Yapar contributed with 10 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Cengiz Aydin Ergen (-88) replied with 14 points and 9 rebounds for Izmir BSB. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Maliye Milli (10-2) have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain first position, which they share with Selcuk Univ. Newly promoted Izmir BSB still closes the standings with 12 games lost. Maliye Milli will play against Gelisim (#13) in Izmir in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Izmir BSB will play at home against Pertevniyal (#11) in Istanbul and hopes to get finally their first victory.
A very close game took place in Giresun between Yesilgiresun and Bandirma Kir.. Sixth ranked Yesilgiresun (8-4) got a very close home victory over 13th ranked Bandirma Kir. (5-7). Yesilgiresun managed to escape with a 2-point win 76-74 on Wednesday evening. Host team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Bandirma Kir.. The game was dominated by American players. Worth to mention a great performance of Alex Gordon who helped to win the game recording 21 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. The best for the losing side was Gilbert Brown with 25 points. Yesilgiresun have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Bandirma Kir. at the other side dropped to the eleventh position with seven games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Yesilgiresun will meet Trabzonspor (#6) on the road in the next round. Bandirma Kir. will play against Akhisar Bld (#7) and hope to secure a win and be promoted back to the TBL just one year after relegation.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Akhisar, where higher ranked Akhisar Bld (7-5) lost at home to seventeenth ranked Baskent Genclik (3-9) 70-79. The winners were led by KZell Wesson who had that evening a double-double by scoring 24 points and 12 rebounds. Akhisar Bld's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Baskent Genclik moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Istanbulspor and Pi Koleji. Akhisar Bld at the other side dropped to the sixth position with five games lost. Baskent Genclik's next round opponent will be higher ranked Usak (#3) at home and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

Rest of the games of round 12 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Trabzonspor defeated Pertevniyal in a road game 75-66. Istanbulspor was beaten by Final Genclik at home 51-58. Gelisim lost to Selcuk Univ. on the opponent's court 62-67. Pi Koleji unfortunately lost to Vestel in a home game 70-83. Istanbul B.B. managed to beat Balikesir on the road 70-66.

Pertevniyal - Trabzonspor 66-75

There was no surprise in Istanbul where 10th ranked Pertevniyal (5-7) was defeated by eighth ranked Trabzonspor (7-5) 75-66. It looked good early as Pertevniyal took an 2-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Trabzonspor had a 22-13 second period charge getting the lead and Pertevniyal was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 66-75. It was a great shooting night for Trabzonspor especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 55.6 percentage. The winners were led by naturalized Azerbaijani forward Rasim Bashak (200-80, agency: Court Side) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 14 points and 11 rebounds and American guard Henry Antwan Dobie (183-78, college: LIU Brooklyn) supported him with 13 points and 7 assists. Even 23 points and 5 rebounds by American guard Dewayne Reed (185-87, college: Auburn, agency: EM-PA) did not help to save the game for Pertevniyal. His fellow American import forward Anthony Brown (203-86, college: Oklahoma St., agency: KMG Sports Management) added 18 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Trabzonspor moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Vestel and Akhisar Bld. Pertevniyal at the other side dropped to the eleventh position with seven games lost. Trabzonspor's next round opponent will be higher ranked Yesilgiresun (#5) in Giresun and it may be quite challenging game. Pertevniyal will play on the road against Izmir BSB (#18).

Selcuk Univ. - Gelisim 67-62

Very expected game in Konya where 11th ranked Gelisim (5-7) was defeated by third ranked Selcuk Universitesi (10-2) 67-62. However just five-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. Gelisim was tied at the half but could not keep up in last two quarters eventually losing the game. 26 personal fouls committed by Gelisim helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The winners were led by forward Hadi Ozdemir (203-83) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 13 points and 12 rebounds and American Bill Clark (195-88, college: Duquesne) supported him with 15 points and 4 assists. Selcuk Universitesi's coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even 17 points and 6 rebounds by American power forward Jermaine Dearman (202-80, college: S.Illinois) did not help to save the game for Gelisim. His fellow American import guard Michael Porrini (187-89, college: Kent St.) added 11 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Selcuk Universitesi keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Maliye Milli. Gelisim at the other side keeps the eleventh place with seven games lost. Selcuk Universitesi's next round opponent will be Istanbul B.B. (#9) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Gelisim will play against the league's leader Maliye Milli in Ankara.

Pi Koleji - Vestel 70-83

Very predictable result in Ankara where ninth ranked Vestel (7-5) beat 16th ranked Pi Koleji (3-9) 83-70. It looked good early as Pi Koleji took an 6-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Vestel had a 24-5 second period charge getting the lead and Pi Koleji was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 70-83. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Pi Koleji to just 5 points in second quarter. The winners were led by American forward Justin Knox (205-89, college: N.Carolina) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 26 points and 10 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line) and the other American import guard Antabia Waller (188-88, college: Auburn) supported him with 15 points and 8 rebounds. Knox is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Vestel's coach allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 12 points and 9 assists by guard Berkay Sahillioglu (183-88) did not help to save the game for Pi Koleji. Croatian power forward Nenad Delic (210-84) added 16 points and 5 rebounds. Four Pi Koleji players scored in double figures. Vestel moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Trabzonspor and Akhisar Bld. Pi Koleji lost seventh consecutive game.

Balikesir - Istanbul B.B. 66-70

There was a minor upset when higher ranked Balikesir (6-6) was defeated at home by twelfth ranked Istanbul B.B. (6-6) 70-66. The guests were ahead by 9 points but lost the second period ending it with a 3-point deficit before their 28-21 run, which allowed them to win the game. Istanbul B.B. dominated on the defensive end, holding Balikesir to just 6 points in second quarter. They also forced 19 Balikesir turnovers. The winners were led by American power forward Arthur Johnson (206-81, college: Missouri) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds and Recep Dogrusoz (-86) supported him with 14 points and 5 rebounds. Even a double-double of 16 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists by American power forward Pervis Pasco (206-81, college: Kansas St.) did not help to save the game for Balikesir. His fellow American import point guard Robert Lowery (188-87, college: Dayton) added 19 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Four Balikesir players scored in double figures. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Istanbul B.B. have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to ninth place, which they share with defeated Balikesir.
