Honeycutt
The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Fourteenth-ranked Usak Sportlif (5-14) made lots of trouble for second ranked Anadolu Efes (17-2) on Monday. The visitors from Istanbul managed to secure only two-point victory 80-78. However their fans expected much easier game. Anadolu Efes looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. American forward Tyler Honeycutt (203-90, college: UCLA) fired a double-double by scoring 13 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. His fellow American import center Alex Kirk (211-91, college: N.Mexico, agency: Pensack Sports) chipped in 15 points and 5 rebounds. Greek-American center Zach Auguste (208-93, college: Notre Dame, agency: Pensack Sports) produced a double-double by scoring 22 points and 19 rebounds for lost side. Anadolu Efes have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Fenerbahce. Usak Sportlif lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth place with 14 games lost. Anadolu Efes is looking forward to face Tofas (#9) in Bursa in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Usak Sportlif will play at home against Istanbul BBSK (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Fenerbahce delivered the seventeenth victory. This time they beat 7th ranked Pinar Karsiyaka (10-9) 85-73. Worth to mention a great performance of international point guard Bobby Dixon (178-83, college: Troy, agency: BeoBasket) who helped to win the game recording 16 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. James Nunnally contributed with 23 points for the winners. American point guard Mike Green (185-85, college: Butler) answered with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 5 rebounds and 10 assists for Pinar Karsiyaka. Pinar Karsiyaka's coach Nenad Markovic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. The victory was the tenth consecutive win for Fenerbahce. Defending champion maintains first place with 17-2 record, which they share with Anadolu Efes. Pinar Karsiyaka lost their third game in a row. They keep the seventh position with nine games lost. Fenerbahce's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Istanbul Darussafaka.
Eleventh-ranked Trabzonspor (7-12) made lots of trouble for fifth ranked Darussafaka (13-6) in Istanbul on Monday. Darussafaka managed to secure only three-point victory 82-79. However their fans expected much easier game. It was a great evening for Adrien Moerman who led his team to a victory scoring 16 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Darussafaka's coach David Blatt used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side Stefan Moody responded with 16 points and 5 assists. Darussafaka maintains fifth place with 13-6 record. Trabzonspor at the other side keeps the eleventh position with 12 games lost. They share it with Istanbul BBSK. Darussafaka will meet league's leader Fenerbahce in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Trabzonspor will play against Galatasaray (#6) and hope to secure a win.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Istanbul, where 6th ranked Galatasaray (11-8) lost at home to ninth ranked Gaziantep (9-10) 66-79. It was an exceptional evening for Davon Jefferson who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 31 points and 12 rebounds (on 13-of-17 shooting from the field). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Gaziantep moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Tofas. Galatasaray at the other side keeps the sixth position with eight games lost. Gaziantep's next round opponent will be Demir IBB (#13) in Buyukcekmece which should be theoretically an easy game.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Buyukcekmece. Local Demir IBB (6-13) was outscored by fourth ranked Banvit (14-5) 89-65 on Saturday night. Jordan Theodore fired a double-double by scoring 12 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists for the winners. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the third consecutive win for Banvit. They maintain fourth place with 14-5 record. Demir IBB lost their sixth game in a row. They dropped to the thirteenth position with 13 games lost. Banvit's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Balikesir Balikesir.

Other games of round 19 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Tofas defeated Best Balikesir in Bursa 86-81. Yesilgiresun was smashed by Besiktas at home 62-82. Bottom-ranked TED Kolejliler was destroyed by Istanbul BBSK on the opponent's court 100-81.
The best stats of 19th round was 21 points and 9 rebounds by Earl Clark of Besiktas.

American guard Brad Wanamaker (193-89, college: Pittsburgh) helped adding 19 points (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field).
