The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, derby games and games ending by tiny margin.

VTB United League round 11 caused change at the leadership position. Third defeat of league's leader Unics Kazan (8-3) against third ranked Spartak St.Petersburg (8-2) 84-68 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Unics Kazan. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Spartak St.Petersburg led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot 61.5 percent from the field. American-Bosnian guard Zack Wright (195-85, college: Central Mo.) orchestrated the victory by scoring 15 points and 7 assists. American forward Josh Carter (200-88, college: Texas A&M) contributed with 16 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Forward Nikita Shabalkin (206-86) answered with 22 points for Unics Kazan. Spartak St.Petersburg keeps a position of league leader. Unics Kazan at the other side dropped to the second place with three games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. They were replaced at the leadership position by CSKA. Unics Kazan will play next round against Lietuvos rytas trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Spartak St.Petersburg will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Kalev/Cramo in Tallinn.
One of the most interesting games of round 11 was a derby match between two teams from Russia. Second ranked CSKA Moscow won against host Enisey Krasnoyarsk (5-6) 73-64. It was a great evening for Serbian point guard Milos Teodosic (195-87) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points, 5 rebounds and 10 assists. Nenad Krstic helped adding 16 points. CSKA Moscow's coach Ettore Messina allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American point guard Zabian Dowdell (191-84, college: Virginia Tech, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov) responded with 19 points and 4 assists. CSKA Moscow (10-1) have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. Defending Russian champion (10-1) keeps a position of league leader. Enisey Krasnoyarsk at the other side keeps the sixth place with six games lost. They share the position with Lietuvos rytas. CSKA Moscow will play against VEF Riga (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Enisey Krasnoyarsk will play against BC Nizhny Novgorod and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Belarusian Tsmoki-Minsk is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their 11th consecutive match to fifth ranked Russian BC Nizhny Novgorod (6-5) 55-54 on Sunday evening. It was an exceptional evening for Primoz Brezec who led the winners and scored 16 points. BC Nizhny Novgorod's coach Zoran Lukic used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Aliaksandr Kudrautsau came up with 17 points and 7 rebounds for Tsmoki-Minsk in the defeat. BC Nizhny Novgorod maintains fifth place with 6-5 record. Tsmoki-Minsk lost their eleventh game in a row. Defending Belarusian champion still closes the standings with 11 games lost. BC Nizhny Novgorod will meet at home Enisey Krasnoyarsk (#6) in the next round. Tsmoki-Minsk will play against Lokomotiv (#4) in Kuban and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Mariupol was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Kazakhstan BC Astana (6-4) played at the court of 8th ranked Ukrainian Azovmash (2-9). BC Astana managed to secure a 7-point victory 89-82. The best player for the winners was Branko Cvetkovic who scored 24 points and 5 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The victory was the third consecutive win for BC Astana. Defending Kazakhstan champion maintains fifth place with 6-4 record. Azovmash lost their fourth game in a row. They dropped to the ninth position with nine games lost. BC Astana's next round opponent will be higher ranked Krasnie Krilya (#4) in Samara and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Azovmash will play on the road against PGE Turow (#10) in Zgorzelec and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Tallinn. Ninth ranked Estonian Kalev/Cramo (3-8) saved a 1-point victory at home edging 7th ranked Ukrainian BC Donetsk (4-7) 61-60 on Sunday evening. Bamba Fall saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 12 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). BC Donetsk's coach Josep Berrocal rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending Estonian champion moved-up to eighth place. Defending Ukrainian champion BC Donetsk keeps the seventh position with seven games lost. Kalev/Cramo will face league's leader Spartak St.Petersburg on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 11: PGE Turow were smashed by Khimky on the road 91-72. Lokomotiv destroyed CEZ Nymburk on its own court 75-54. Neptunas unfortunately lost to VEF Riga in a road game 89-94. Krasnie Krilya managed to beat Lietuvos rytas at home 89-72.
The most impressive performance of 11th round was 32 points by Valdas Vasylius of Neptunas.



Khimky - PGE Turow 91-72

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked Russian Khimky (8-3) crushed 9th ranked Polish PGE Turow (2-9) in Khimki 91-72 on Monday. The game without a history. Khimky led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 50 of its points in the paint compared to PGE Turow's 26. It was a great shooting night for Khimky especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.4 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 30 assists comparing to just 10 passes made by PGE Turow's players. Finnish point guard Petteri Koponen (194-88) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field). Forward Alexey Zhukanenko (210-86, agency: Alti Sport) contributed with 16 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Khimky's coach Rimas Kurtinaitis used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. American guard David Jackson (193-86, college: W.Illinois) answered with 11 points and Serbian guard Djordje Micic (195-83) added 11 points and 4 assists in the effort for PGE Turow. Five PGE Turow players scored in double figures. Khimky moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams. PGE Turow lost their fourth game in a row. They keep the ninth position with nine games lost. Khimky will face BC Donetsk (#7) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game.

VEF Riga - Neptunas 94-89

Very predictable result when third ranked Latvian VEF Riga (8-3) won against at home 9th ranked Lithuanian Neptunas (1-10) 94-89 on Sunday.
