There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in A1. The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Sibenik. Second ranked Lupa Promotion faced 3rd placed Jolly. Guests from Novi Zagreb (20-1) defeated host Jolly (17-4) 78-61. The guests trailed by 6 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 9-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 78-61. Lupa Promotion forced 23 Jolly turnovers. The best player for the winners was the former international forward Mirna Mazic (188-85, college: Richmond, agency: 1x1 Sports) who scored 18 points and 7 rebounds. American point guard Leilani Mitchell (165-85, college: Utah, agency: LBM Management) chipped in 16 points and 4 steals. At the other side the best for losing team was the former international center Luca Ivankovic (207-87) who recorded 16 points and 7 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Lupa Promotion have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Gospic. Jolly lost third consecutive game. They keep the third place with four games lost. Lupa Promotion is looking forward to face Rockwool Pula (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Jolly will play against ZKK Medvescak (#4) in Zagreb and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Gospic delivered the twentiethth victory. This time they crushed 9th ranked Rockwool Pula (7-14) 109-48.

Center Maja Ramljak (185-88) answered with 13 points and 9 rebounds for Rockwool Pula. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the twentiethth consecutive win for Gospic.
