The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Khimik as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Khimik defeated bottom-ranked BC Kyiv in Yuzhny 77-64. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 2-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 77-64. 25 personal fouls committed by BC Kyiv helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American-Bulgarian point guard Willie Deane (188-80, college: Purdue, agency: Higher Vision Sports) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 10 assists for the winners and American forward Vernon Goodridge (206-84, college: La Salle) chipped in 12 points and 10 rebounds. Khimik's coach Zoran Martic used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American guard Anthony Goods (191-87, college: Stanford) responded with 15 points and 5 rebounds. Khimik have a solid series of three victories in a row. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. BC Kyiv at the other side still closes the standings with two games lost. They share the position with Mykolaiv. BC Kyiv will play next round against BC Odessa trying to get back on the winning streak. Khimik will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Budivelnyk in Kyiv.
Undefeated Hoverla (1-1) recorded its first loss in Frankivsk. Hosts were edged by thirteenth ranked Dnipro (1-2) 63-62. Australian-Dutch power forward Daniel Kickert (208-83, college: St.Mary's, CA) nailed 14 points, 5 rebounds and 4 blocks for the winning side and Valdas Vasylius accounted for 14 points. American Kyndall Dykes (190-87, college: New Orleans, agency: Edge Sports) came up with 20 points and 8 rebounds for Hoverla in the defeat. Hoverla's coach Evgeni Murzin rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Dnipro left bottom position moving up to ninth place, which they share with Kryvbasbasket and Cherkasy. Hoverla at the other side dropped to the sixth position with one game lost. They share it with Halychyna and DniproAzot. Dnipro will play against higher ranked Halychyna (#6) in Lviv in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hoverla will play at home against DniproAzot in Dniprodzerzhynsk and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Halychyna has registered their first victory this season after a loss. The win is especially important as they outplayed much higher ranked DniproAzot (1-1) 89-57 on Friday. The best player for the winners was Sasa Vasiljevic who scored 18 points and 6 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Ronald Davis produced 19 points 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. Halychyna left bottom position moving up to sixth place, which they share with Hoverla and DniproAzot. Halychyna will meet at home Dnipro (#11) in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. DniproAzot will play against Hoverla (#7) in Frankivsk and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked BC Odessa (0-3) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their third consecutive match to leader Budivelnyk (2-0) 82-77. Leo Lyons orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points and 6 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Budivelnyk moved-up to third place, which they share with Ferro-ZNTU. BC Odessa at the other side still closes the standings with three games lost. Budivelnyk's next round opponent will be league's leader Khimik in Yuzhny and it will be for sure the game of the week. BC Odessa will play at home against BC Kyiv (#12) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

In the last game of round 5 Kryvbasbasket lost to undefeated Ferro-ZNTU on the opponent's court 81-90.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists by Randy Culpepper of Ferro-ZNTU.

Khimik - BC Kyiv 77-64

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Khimik as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Khimik defeated bottom-ranked BC Kyiv in Yuzhny 77-64. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 2-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 77-64. 25 personal fouls committed by BC Kyiv helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American-Bulgarian point guard Willie Deane (188-80, college: Purdue, agency: Higher Vision Sports) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 10 assists for the winners and American forward Vernon Goodridge (206-84, college: La Salle) chipped in 12 points and 10 rebounds. Goodridge is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Four Khimik players scored in double figures. Khimik's coach Zoran Martic used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American guard Anthony Goods (191-87, college: Stanford) responded with 15 points and 5 rebounds and the other American import forward Jarrod Jones (205-90, college: Ball St.) scored 7 points and 12 rebounds. Khimik have a solid series of three victories in a row. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. BC Kyiv at the other side still closes the standings with two games lost. They share the position with Mykolaiv. BC Kyiv will play next round against BC Odessa trying to get back on the winning streak. Khimik will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Budivelnyk in Kyiv.

Ferro-ZNTU - Kryvbasbasket 90-81

Rather expected game in Zaporozhye where 8th ranked Kryvbasbasket (1-2) was defeated by leader Ferro-ZNTU (2-0) 90-81. The hosts were already 17 points ahead after 3 quarters before a 24-16 Kryvbasbasket's run in the last quarter cut the lead to 90-81 at the end of the game. Ferro-ZNTU made 24-of-30 charity shots (80.0 percent) during the game. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 26 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Kryvbasbasket's players. 25 personal fouls committed by Kryvbasbasket helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Americans were the main players on the court. Guard Randy Culpepper (182-89, college: UTEP) orchestrated the victory with a triple-double by scoring 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Guard Jeremy Chappell (191-87, college: Robert Morris) contributed with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) for the winners. Five Ferro-ZNTU players scored in double figures. Guard James Florence (185-88, college: Mercer, agency: Pro One Sports) answered with 25 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists and guard Pierce Caldwell (191-88, college: Incarnate Word, agency: Alti Sport) added 19 points and 6 rebounds in the effort for Kryvbasbasket. Kryvbasbasket's coach Karlis Muiznieks tested eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Ferro-ZNTU moved-up to third place, which they share with Budivelnyk.
