There was a change at the TKB2L leadership position after last games. Round 14 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Nallihan (12-2). They were defeated by second ranked Botas (12-2) 70-58 on Sunday night. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Nallihan. It was a key game for the top position in Group A. The hosts trailed by 6 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 70-58. Botas forced 24 Nallihan turnovers. Center Tilbe Senyurek (188-95) had a double-double by scoring 26 points and 18 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and guard Pelin Bilgic (170-94) chipped in 13 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals during the contest. American power forward Sharon Houston (191-88, college: Indiana NW) responded with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 26 rebounds. Nallihan's coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Botas have an impressive nine-game winning streak. They keep a position of Group A leader, which they share with Nallihan and Altay Konak. Nallihan will play next round against Celtispor trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Botas will try to continue on its current victory against fourth ranked Dizdar in Istanbul.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Izmir. Third ranked host Altay Konak (12-2) defeated 4th ranked Dizdar (9-5) 64-54. American forward LaToya Thomas (188-81, college: Mississippi St., agency: Ronsport) notched a double-double by scoring 19 points, 14 rebounds and 6 assists to lead the effort and Seda Guclu supported her with 9 points and 4 assists. Altay Konak's coach allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 16 points and 5 steals by Merve Uygul (-88) did not help to save the game for Dizdar. Altay Konak keeps a position of Group A leader, which they share with Nallihan and Botas. Newly promoted Dizdar keeps the fourth place with five games lost. Altay Konak will play against 55 Genclik (#5) in Samsun in the next round. Dizdar will play at home against the league's leader Botas in Adana and hopes to get back on the winning track.

The best player for the winners was Chasity Melvin who scored 22 points and 9 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field).

The game between Top Four teams took place in Hatay. 4th ranked host Sirince (9-5) lost to second ranked Edirne (12-2) 87-78. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sirince. Susan Lester orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 11 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Edirne's coach used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Edirne have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain second position in Group C with 12-2 record having just -3 point less than leader Orduspor. Newly promoted Sirince keeps the fourth place with five games lost. Edirne's next round opponent will be Bigaspor (#8) in Canakkale where they are favorite. Sirince will play on the road against Sakarya (#7).
TKB2L top team - Orduspor (11-1) had no problems winning another game on Sunday. This time they crushed eighth ranked Nevsehir Uni. (2-10) 90-48.
