There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games.

The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Istanbul: Fenerbahce Ulker (#2) and Besiktas (#6). Besiktas was defeated at home 70-78 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. Besiktas was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Fenerbahce Ulker made 18-of-21 free shots (85.7 percent) during the game. It was a great evening for Bosnian-Croatian Bojan Bogdanovic (203-89) who led his team to a victory scoring 15 points. The former international guard Baris Ermis (194-85) helped adding 10 points. At the losing side Bosnian-Croatian forward Damir Markota (209-85) responded with 15 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Fenerbahce Ulker (17-2) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Banvit BK. Defending champion Besiktas keeps the sixth place with seven games lost. Fenerbahce Ulker is looking forward to face Karsiyaka (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Besiktas will play against Gaziantep and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Bottom-ranked Hacettepe managed to get a fourth victory, breaking the series of two consecutive loses. This time they edged eighth-ranked Erdemir 71-69. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Clay Tucker (196-80, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee, agency: Beo Basket) who led the winners and scored 18 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Huseyin Besok accounted for 11 points and 11 rebounds. American swingman Sean Marshall (198-85, college: Boston Coll.) came up with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 13 rebounds for Erdemir in the defeat. Hacettepe (4-15) moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with Antalya and Olin Edirne. Erdemir at the other side keeps the eighth position with 12 games lost. They share it with Tofas and Aliaga. Hacettepe's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Ankara TED Kolejliler.
The game in Ankara was also quite interesting. Second ranked Banvit BK (17-2) played at the court of 7th ranked TED Kolejliler (10-9). Banvit BK managed to secure a 5-point victory 81-76 on Sunday. Sammy Mejia fired 18 points and 5 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for the winners. Banvit BK's coach Orhun Ene used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. Jovo Stanojevic produced 20 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists (made all of his ten free throws !!!) for lost side. The victory was the tenth consecutive win for Banvit BK. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Fener.Ulker. Newly promoted TED Kolejliler keeps the seventh place with nine games lost. Banvit BK will meet Mersin (#12) in the next round which should be an easy win for them. TED Kolejliler's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Ankara to the arena Hacettepe.
A very interesting game took place in Aliaga. It ended with only two-point defeat on the road of 12th ranked Turk Telekom (5-14) to tenth ranked Aliaga (7-12) 81-79 on Sunday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Lionel Chalmers who helped to win the game recording 20 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Aliaga moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Tofas and Erdemir. Turk Telekom at the other side keeps the twelfth position with 14 games lost. Aliaga's next round opponent will be higher ranked Anadolu Efes (#5) in Istanbul and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Turk Telekom will play at home against Tofas (#10) in Bursa and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Fifth ranked Anadolu Efes (15-4) crushed at home 14th ranked Antalya (4-15) by 24 points 96-72, which is the biggest margin this round on Sunday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Birkan Batuk who helped to win the game recording 17 points and 8 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Anadolu Efes maintains fifth place with 15-4 record. Loser Antalya keeps the fourteenth position with 15 games lost. Anadolu Efes will face Aliaga (#9) on the road in the next round. Antalya will play against Olin Edirne (#16) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 19: Tofas lost to Karsiyaka on the opponent's court 77-87. Olin Edirne unfortunately lost to Galatasaray in a home game 59-69. Gaziantep managed to beat Mersin on the road 98-86.

Olin Edirne - Galatasaray 59-69

Very predictable result when fourth ranked Galatasaray (16-3) defeated on the road bottom-ranked Olin Edirne (4-15) 69-59 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 36-25 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. It was a great evening for Puerto Rican point guard Carlos Arroyo (188-79, college: FIU, agency: Interperformances) who led his team to a victory scoring 15 points and 7 assists. Georgian Manuchar Markoishvili (196-86) helped adding 21 points. At the losing side Belarusian center Artsiom Parakhouski (210-87, college: Radford) responded with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 11 rebounds and point guard Mehmet Yagmur (188-87) scored 15 points (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). The victory was the sixth consecutive win for Galatasaray. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Karsiyaka. Loser Olin Edirne dropped to the bottom position with 15 games lost. Galatasaray will face Erdemir (#8) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Olin Edirne will play against Antalya (#14) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Mersin - Gaziantep 86-98

Everything could happen in Akdeniz at the game between two tied teams. Both eleventh ranked Gaziantep and 12th ranked Mersin had identical 5-13 record. But Mersin was not able to use a home court advantage and was defeated by the opponent from Gaziantep 98-86 on Saturday night. The game was mostly controlled by Gaziantep. Mersin was better in second period 22-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Gaziantep shot the lights out from three sinking 16 long-distance shots on high 53.3 percentage. It was a great evening for American power forward Joey Dorsey (206-83, college: Memphis, agency: FCM) who led his team to a victory scoring 26 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. The former international power forward Mutlu Akpinar (203-83) helped adding 24 points and 4 assists. At the losing side naturalized American forward Ali Karadeniz (203-80, college: Arizona) responded with 26 points and 5 rebounds (on 13-of-17 shooting from the field) and American guard Willie Solomon (187-78, college: Clemson) scored 19 points. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Newly promoted Gaziantep maintains eleventh place with 6-13 record. Mersin lost their fifth game in a row. They keep the twelfth position with 14 games lost. Gaziantep will face higher ranked Besiktas (#6) in Istanbul in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Mersin will play at home against the league's second-placed Banvit BK (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
