There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Usak as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Usak smashed 12th ranked Istanbul B.B. at home 90-66. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Istanbul B.B.. The hosts trailed by 6 points at the halftime before their 52-22 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Usak dominated on the defensive end, holding Istanbul B.B. to just 6 points in third quarter. They also forced 19 Istanbul B.B. turnovers. Usak looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. The best player for the winners was American forward Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) who scored 28 points, 5 assists and 5 steals. The other American import forward Eric Buckner (208-90, college: Georgia St., agency: David Lee services) chipped in 17 points, 13 rebounds and 4 blocks. American forward Jayme Miller (203-85) produced a double-double by scoring 22 points and 13 rebounds for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Usak have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Yesilgiresun. Istanbul B.B. at the other side keeps the twelfth place with 15 games lost. They share the position with Final Genclik. Istanbul B.B. will play next round against Istanbulspor trying to get back on the winning streak. It will be a derby game for which supporters look forward to, where their team will face at home their local rival from Istanbul - Istanbulspor. Usak will try to continue on its current victory against ninth ranked Vestel in Manisa.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Maliye Milli (17-9) against sixth ranked Balikesir (16-10) on Saturday night. Visiting Maliye Milli was defeated by Balikesir in a tough game in Balikesir 68-75. American point guard Robert Lowery (188-87, college: Dayton) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.

Bugra Gacemer scored 19 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the charge for the winners. KZell Wesson responded with 9 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists.
