There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with change at the leadership position, derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

There was a change at the TB2L leadership position after last games. Round 24 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Maliye Milli (17-7). They were defeated by sixteenth ranked Pi Koleji (9-15) 83-75 on Friday night. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Maliye Milli. The hosts trailed by 5 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 5-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 83-75. 31 personal fouls committed by Maliye Milli helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American swingman Vincent Grier (195-83, college: Minnesota) who helped to win the game recording 15 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals and Latvian center Kaspars Kambala (206-78, college: UNLV, agency: Alti Sport) who added 19 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American guard Zach Graham (198-89, college: Mississippi) with 20 points and 6 rebounds. Maliye Milli's coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Pi Koleji have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Pertevniyal. Maliye Milli at the other side still keeps top position with seven games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Usak who have the same record. Maliye Milli will play next round against Bandirma Kir. trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Pi Koleji will try to continue on its current victory against seventeenth ranked Istanbulspor at home.
The game had a very big importance for fourth-ranked Usak as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Maliye Milli) loss. Usak defeated one of their biggest challengers Selcuk Universitesi at home 74-65. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The winners were led by American forward Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) who scored that evening 18 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists and Gurol Karamahmut supported him with 19 points. Usak's coach allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 8 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists by forward Hadi Ozdemir (203-83) did not help to save the game for Selcuk Universitesi. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Maliye Milli and Yesilgiresun. Selcuk Universitesi lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the fourth place with eight games lost. Selcuk Universitesi will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest in order to get back on the winning path. Usak will try to continue on its current victory against eleventh ranked Gelisim at Izmir.
Leading Yesilgiresun (17-7) recorded its seventh loss in Giresun on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by fourteenth ranked Istanbul B.B. (10-14) 80-75. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Yesilgiresun. The best player for the winners was Jayme Miller who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 14 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Alex Gordon who recorded 20 points and 6 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Istanbul B.B. moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Final Genclik and Baskent Genclik. Newly promoted Yesilgiresun still keeps top position with seven games lost. They share it with Usak and Maliye Milli. Istanbul B.B. will meet at home higher ranked Akhisar Bld (#6) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Yesilgiresun will play against Vestel (#7) in Manisa and hope to secure a win.
The game in Trabzon was also worth to mention about. 5th ranked Darussafaka (14-10) played at the court of sixth ranked Trabzonspor (15-9). Trabzonspor managed to secure a 8-point victory 73-65. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Darussafaka. It was a good game for Khalid El-Amin who led his team to a victory with 17 points, 6 assists and 4 steals. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Trabzonspor have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Akhisar Bld. Darussafaka at the other side dropped to the seventh position with ten games lost. Trabzonspor's next round opponent will be Baskent Genclik (#14) in Ankara and are hoping to win another game. Darussafaka will play at home against Izmir BSB (#18).
Important game to mention about took place in Balikesir. Eleventh ranked Bandirma Kir. (12-12) saved a 1-point victory at home edging 12th ranked Baskent Genclik (10-14) 80-79 on Sunday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Raymond Sykes who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 8 rebounds. Baskent Genclik's coach Ismail Beles let to play ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Bandirma Kir. moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Gelisim.
