The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets.

The game between second ranked Banco di Sard. (18-7) and sixth ranked Armani Milano (15-10) was the most important one in the last round on Saturday night. Banco di Sard. was defeated by Armani Milano in a tough game in Sassari 79-85. Banco di Sard. trailed by 12 points after 3 quarters before a 18-12 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 79-85 at the end of the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American Keith Langford (193-83, college: Kansas) who helped to win the game recording 26 points and 4 assists. Swingman Alessandro Gentile (198-92) contributed with 18 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American point guard Travis Diener (184-82, college: Marquette) answered with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for Banco di Sard.Armani Milano moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Montepaschi and Cantu. Banco di Sard. at the other side keeps the second position with seven games lost. Armani Milano is looking forward to face VL Pesaro (#15) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Banco di Sard. will play against Trenkwalder RE (#7) in Reggio Emilia and is hoping to win this game.
An interesting game for Cimberio Varese (20-5) which hosted in Varese 3rd placed Lottomatica Roma (17-8). First ranked Cimberio Varese had an easy win 81-58. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Lottomatica Roma. International forward Achille Polonara (202-91) stepped up and scored 9 points and 9 rebounds for the winners and Janar Talts chipped in 8 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Cimberio Varese's coach Francesco Vitucci felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side American-Nigerian power forward Gani Lawal (205-88, college: Georgia Tech, agency: Three Eye Sports) responded with 8 points and 18 rebounds. Cimberio Varese maintains first place with 20-5 record. Lottomatica Roma at the other side keeps the third position with eight games lost. Cimberio Varese will play against Sutor Montegranaro (#13) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Lottomatica Roma will play against Air Avellino (#10) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Cantu between Juvecaserta and Cantu. Ninth ranked Juvecaserta (11-14) got a very close victory on the road over higher ranked Cantu (15-10). Juvecaserta managed to escape with a 1-point win 66-65 on Monday evening. Stevan Jelovac nailed a double-double by scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds for the winning side.
