Josh Duncan
The Regular Season in TBL is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Eskisehir Basket as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Eskisehir Basket smashed 11th ranked Gelisim in Edirne 87-59. Eskisehir Basket looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. The best player for the winners was Bugrahan Tuncer who scored 18 points and 9 assists. American power forward Josh Duncan (203-86) chipped in 13 points and 10 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Bosnian-Slovenian center Hasan Rizvic (212-84) who recorded 15 points and 9 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. Eskisehir Basket have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Gelisim lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the twelfth place with 19 games lost. Gelisim will play next round against Yalova Bld trying to get back on the winning streak. Eskisehir Basket will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Samsun on the road.
Eighth-ranked Turk Telekom (16-14) made lots of trouble for fourth ranked Bursaspor (23-7). Bursaspor managed to secure only three-point victory 72-69. However their fans expected much easier game. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Turk Telekom. It was a good game for Croatian guard Karlo Vragovic (192-89) who led his team to a victory with 19 points. Dejan Borovnjak contributed with 13 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. American power forward Darryl Monroe (201-86, college: George Mason, agency: BeoBasket) replied with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds for Turk Telekom. Bursaspor have an impressive eight-game winning streak. Newly promoted Bursaspor maintains fourth position with 23-7 record. Turk Telekom at the other side dropped to the ninth place with 14 games lost. Bursaspor will play against Acibadem (#6) in Istanbul in the next round. Turk Telekom will play at home against the league's second-placed Sakarya BSB and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Fourteenth-ranked Duzce Belediye (10-20) made lots of trouble for ninth ranked Samsun (16-13) on Saturday. The visitors from Samsun managed to secure only two-point victory 66-64. However their fans expected much easier game. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Duzce Belediye. Jerry Smith scored 28 points to lead the charge for the winners. The best for the losing side was TreVon Hughes with 16 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. Samsun moved-up to eighth place. Duzce Belediye at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keeps the fourteenth position with 20 games lost. Samsun will meet at home league's leader Eskisehir Basket in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Duzce Belediye will play against Bandirma Kir. (#10) in Balikesir and hope to secure a win.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Akhisar, where higher ranked Istanbulspor (18-12) lost to twelfth ranked Akhisar Bld (12-18) in a road game 81-87. Tyler Smith notched 27 points and 6 rebounds (perfect from downtown making all six shots !!!) to lead the effort. Istanbulspor's coach Hakan Yavuz rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Akhisar Bld moved-up to eleventh place. Newly promoted Istanbulspor keeps the seventh position with 12 games lost. Akhisar Bld's next round opponent will be Final Genclik (#17) in Bursa where they are favorite.
An interesting game took place in Ankara, where higher ranked Afyon Bld (20-11) lost to sixteenth ranked Mamak DSI (8-22) in a road game 83-96 on Saturday. The best player for the winners was Tyshawn Taylor who scored 33 points (!!!) and 8 assists. Afyon Bld's coach tested eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Mamak DSI have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain sixteenth position with 8-22 record. Loser Afyon Bld keeps the fifth place with 11 games lost. Mamak DSI will face higher ranked Istanbulspor (#7) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Afyon Bld will play against Socar Petkim where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

Rest of the games of round 30 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
bottom-ranked Mugla Orman was defeated by Yalova Bld in a road game 104-89. Sakarya BSB smashed Final Genclik at home 85-56. Bandirma Kir. lost to Socar Petkim on the opponent's court 70-81. Pertevniyal managed to outperform Acibadem in a home game 89-79.
The best stats of 30th round was 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists by Ahmet Tunali of Yalova Bld.

Yalova Bld outrebounded Muglaorman 39-28 including a 30-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a great shooting night for Yalova Bld especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.4 percentage.

Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Newly promoted Yalova Bld maintains thirteenth position with 11-19 record. Muglaorman lost fifth consecutive game. Muglaorman at the other side, also newcomer in the league, stay dead last with 26 lost games. Yalova Bld will face higher ranked Gelisim (#12) in Izmir in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Muglaorman will play at home against Pertevniyal (#15) and hope to win that game.
