Kudrautsau
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in VTB United League. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, derby games and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Lithuanian Zalgiris (15-2) on the court of tenth ranked Belarusian Tsmoki-Minsk on Sunday night. Visitors were defeated by Tsmoki-Minsk 86-82. It ended at the same time the 11-game winning streak of Zalgiris. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Zalgiris won fourth quarter 26-23. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Tsmoki-Minsk made 29-of-35 free shots (82.9 percent) during the game. 27 personal fouls committed by Zalgiris helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Aliaksandr Kudrautsau (190-80) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 6 assists. American guard Tierre Brown (188-79, college: McNeese St.) contributed with 16 points and 4 assists for the winners. American swingman Tremmell Darden (194-81, college: Niagara) answered with 14 points and 6 rebounds for Zalgiris. Zalgiris' coach Joan Plaza rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending Belarusian champion (2-15) moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Neptunas. Defending Lithuanian champion Zalgiris still keep top position with two games lost. Tsmoki-Minsk is looking forward to face higher ranked CEZ Nymburk (#8) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Eighth-ranked Polish PGE Turow (4-13) was very close to win a game against fourth ranked Russian Spartak St.Petersburg (12-5) on Sunday. Spartak St.Petersburg managed to secure only two-point victory 76-74. However their fans expected much easier game. Loukas Mavrokefalidis nailed 16 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side. Russell Robinson came up with 21 points and 5 assists for PGE Turow in the defeat.

CSKA Moscow's next round opponent will be Triumph Lyubertsy (#6) in Lubertsy. Lokomotiv will play at home against VEF Riga and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
