There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in Superleague.

Olimpi dominated down low during the game scoring 78 of its points in the paint compared to STU's 34. Olimpi forced 25 STU turnovers and outrebounded them 47-31 including a 29-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 39 assists comparing to just 16 passes made by STU's players. Forward Levan Fatsatsia (198-88) stepped up and scored 25 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners and international Akaki Dvalishvili (206-90) chipped in 24 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field). The best for the losing side was forward Zurab Machaladze (198-92) with 9 points and 8 rebounds. STU's coach gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with MIA Academy. STU at the other side stay dead last with 18 lost games. There is only one round left in the Regular Season. And it will be most important game for STU this season. They will face Dinamo Tbilisi 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 Dinamo Tbilisi. Olimpi will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Armia. It will be extra interesting game as Armia is their local rival from Tbilisi.
Leading MIA (16-3) recorded its third loss at the home court. Hosts were edged by fifth ranked Dinamo Tbilisi (12-7) 80-78. It ended at the same time the nine-game winning streak of MIA.

American center Kirk Archibeque (205-84, college: Fort Lewis) came up with 19 points and 9 rebounds for MIA in the defeat. Dinamo Tbilisi maintains fifth place with 12-7 record. MIA at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. They share it with Olimpi. Dinamo Tbilisi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi STU.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Sokhumi (#7) and Samedicino-Academia (#10). Sokhumi (9-10) crushed visiting Samedicino-Academia (2-17) by 29 points 95-66. The best player for the winners was Sergo Atvashovili who had a double-double by scoring 38 points (!!!) and 16 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Giorgi Periashvili who recorded a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 rebounds. Samedicino-Academia's coach already knew that his team would not have a big chance, so allowed to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win.

Sokhumi will meet higher ranked Kutaisi (#6) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
