Stevan
Milosevic
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 4 rounds.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Olimpi as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Olimpi defeated 5th ranked Dinamo Tbilisi at home 92-82. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Dinamo Tbilisi. They outrebounded Dinamo Tbilisi 52-32 including a 18-5 advantage in offensive rebounds. 25 personal fouls committed by Dinamo Tbilisi helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Montenegrin center Stevan Milosevic (211-85, agency: Interperformances) had a double-double by scoring 12 points and 15 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and guard Konstantine Tomaradze (197-90) chipped in 18 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American point guard Lamar Karim (178-83, college: So.Poly State, agency: Interperformances) with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Olimpi (14-2) have an impressive six-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with MIA Academy. Dinamo Tbilisi at the other side keeps the fifth place with six games lost. Dinamo Tbilisi will play next round against Sokhumi trying to get back on the winning streak. It will be a derby game for which supporters look forward to, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena of Sokhumi. Olimpi will try to continue on its current victory against second ranked MIA. It will be extra interesting game as MIA is their local rival from Tbilisi.
Important game to mention about took place in Rustavi. Sixth ranked Kutaisi (10-7) saved a 1-point derby victory on the road edging 4th ranked Energy Invest (12-5) 85-84 on Friday evening. Naturalized Azerbaijani forward Davit Barbakadze (203-82) notched 28 points and 4 assists to lead the effort and Zaur Pashayev supported him with 15 points, 8 rebounds and 10 assists. Even a double-double of 21 points and 19 rebounds by American forward Kyle Nelson (203-89, college: Augustana, IL, agency: N.E.T.) did not help to save the game for Energy Invest. Kutaisi maintains sixth position with 10-7 record. Energy Invest at the other side keeps the fourth place with five games lost. Kutaisi will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Energy Invest will play on the road against Armia (#3) in Tbilisi and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Armia (#3) and TSU (#7). Armia (13-3) smashed visiting TSU (6-11) by 64 points 109-45. The best player for the winners was Lasha Parghalava who scored 18 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Serzhi Aselaini who recorded 10 points and 6 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion maintains third position with 13-3 record behind leader Olimpi. Loser TSU dropped to the eighth place with 11 games lost. Armia will meet at home Energy Invest (#4) in the next round. TSU's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena Samedicino-Academia.
Bottom-ranked STU (0-16) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 16th consecutive match to eighth ranked Sokhumi (6-10) 79-66. It was a good game for Grigol Shvangiradze who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds. STU's coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Sokhumi moved-up to seventh place. STU at the other side still closes the standings. Sokhumi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi Dinamo Tbilisi.

In the last game of round 18 Batumi won against Samedicino on the opponent's court 81-73.

Four Kutaisi players scored in double figures.
