Brazelton
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was another loss of top-ranked Budivelnyk (18-7) in Kyiv on Friday night. Hosts were edged by thirteenth ranked BC Odessa (6-17) 80-78. The guests trailed by 2 points at the halftime before their 49-45 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. BC Odessa made 19-of-24 free shots (79.2 percent) during the game. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when BC Odessa made 10 blocks. 24 personal fouls committed by Budivelnyk helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Tyrone Brazelton (185-86, college: W.Kentucky) who helped to win the game recording 16 points and 4 assists and the former international Andriy Agafonov (208-86, agency: Interperformances) who added 15 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American forward Leo Lyons (206-87, college: Missouri, agency: Edge Sports) with a double-double by scoring 27 points and 11 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. BC Odessa maintains thirteenth position with 6-17 record. Budivelnyk at the other side still keeps top place with seven games lost. BC Odessa are looking forward to face bottom-ranked BC Kyiv (#14) on the road in the next round. Budivelnyk will play against Khimik (#6) in Yuzhny and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Azovmash (17-8) against eighth ranked Mykolaiv (12-13) on Friday night. Visiting Azovmash was defeated by Mykolaiv in a tough game in Mykolaiv 75-79. Americans were the main players on the court. The winners were led by guard Josh Mayo (182-87, college: Ill.-Chicago, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov) who scored that evening 34 points (!!!) and Anthony Shavies supported him with 10 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Even 28 points and 5 assists by point guard Lynn Greer (186-79, college: Temple) did not help to save the game for Azovmash. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Mykolaiv maintains eighth position with 12-13 record. Azovmash lost third consecutive game. They keep the third place with eight games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Ferro-ZNTU (17-7) against ninth ranked Cherkasy (11-12) on Friday night. Visiting Ferro-ZNTU was defeated by Cherkasy in Cherkasy 94-83.

Cherkasy will meet Dnipro (#12) in the next round. Ferro-ZNTU will play against DniproAzot (#11) in Dniprodzerzhynsk and hope to secure a win.
Bottom-ranked BC Kyiv managed to get a sixth victory, breaking the three-game losing streak. This time they won against sixth-ranked Khimik 81-69. It was a good game for Vyacheslav Bobrov who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 blocks (perfect from the field making all eight shots !!!). Khimik's coach Zoran Martic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. BC Kyiv maintains fourteenth position with 6-19 record. Khimik at the other side keeps the sixth place with ten games lost. BC Kyiv's next round opponent will be higher ranked BC Odessa (#13) at home and it may be quite challenging game.
Twelfth ranked Dnipro (8-15) crushed at home 10th ranked Kryvbasbasket (10-15) by 21 points 91-70, which is the biggest margin this round on Friday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Stanislav Tymofeyenko who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points and 10 rebounds. Kryvbasbasket's coach Karlis Muiznieks gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Dnipro maintains twelfth position with 8-15 record.
