The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 24-13. But Trabzonspor won second period 15-9. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. 33 personal fouls committed by Trabzonspor helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Forward Hadi Ozdemir (203-83) fired 15 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. American Bill Clark (195-88, college: Duquesne) chipped in 18 points. American guard Henry Antwan Dobie (183-78, college: LIU Brooklyn) produced 16 points and 5 assists for lost side. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Usak and Maliye Milli. Trabzonspor at the other side dropped to the seventh place with eight games lost. They share the position with Darussafaka. Trabzonspor will play next round against Gelisim trying to get back on the winning streak.

Top ranked Usak (14-5) recorded its fifth loss at the home court. Hosts were edged by sixth ranked Akhisar Bld (12-7) 71-70.

American forward Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) answered with 12 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists for Usak. Usak's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Akhisar Bld moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Vestel. Usak at the other side still keeps top position with five games lost. They share it with Selcuk Univ. and Maliye Milli. Akhisar Bld will play against Istanbulspor (#17) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Usak will play against Maliye Milli (#3) in Ankara and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Manisa between Vestel and Darussafaka. Seventh ranked Vestel (12-7) got a very close home victory over 5th ranked Darussafaka (11-8).
