There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in Division A. There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Oradea (23-6) at the home court on Thursday night. Hosts were defeated by seventh ranked U-Mobitelco (19-10) 84-75. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Oradea. The guests started the game with a very strong first quarter 21-12. But Oradea won third quarter 29-20. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. U-Mobitelco made 16-of-21 free shots (76.2 percent) during the game. Bulgarian Hristo Nikolov (200-85) stepped up and scored 24 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners and American forward Sean Barnette (198-86, college: Wingate) chipped in 13 points and 10 rebounds. American point guard William Franklin (183-85, college: Bradley) responded with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. U-Mobitelco moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Timisoara and Gaz Metan. Oradea at the other side still keeps top position with six games lost. U-Mobitelco is looking forward to face Pitesti (#11) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Oradea will play against Craiova (#4) and is hoping to win this game.
The game in Medias supposed to be also worth to mention about. 4th placed Craiova (20-9) played at the court of sixth ranked Gaz Metan (19-10). Gaz Metan smashed Craiova 101-66. American forward Deven Mitchell (197-84, agency: Interperformances) nailed 18 points and 5 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winning side and Aleksandar Mladenovic accounted for 14 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Serbian guard Rade Dzambic (188-80, college: NYIT, agency: TSS Management) came up with 16 points for Craiova in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Gaz Metan moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Timisoara and U.Mobitel.CN. Craiova at the other side keeps the fourth position with nine games lost. Gaz Metan will play against Timba Timosoara (#13) in Timisoara in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Craiova will play at home against the league's leader Oradea (#1) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Pitesti between Rovinari and Pitesti. Eleventh ranked Rovinari (14-15) got a very close victory on the road over 10th ranked Pitesti (13-16).

An interesting game took place in Timisoara where higher ranked Timisoara (19-10) was upset on its own court by twelfth ranked Giurgiu (11-18) 96-86. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Timisoara. Perry Petty orchestrated the victory by scoring 40 points (!!!), 6 rebounds, 9 assists and 4 steals. Giurgiu maintains twelfth place with 11-18 record. Timisoara at the other side keeps the fifth position with ten games lost. Giurgiu's next round opponent will be higher ranked Ploiesti (#3) at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Timisoara will play against Farul Const. in Constanca.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Bucuresti: CSM Bucuresti (#8) and CS Dinamo Bucuresti (#16). CS Dinamo Bucuresti was defeated at home 81-92. Goran Martinic stepped up and scored 23 points and 5 assists for the winners.

Ploiesti - Timba Timis. 107-85

Not a big story in a game when 13th ranked Timba Timosoara (8-21) was rolled over on the road by third ranked Ploiesti (22-7) 107-85 on Thursday. The game without a history. Ploiesti led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Ploiesti forced 22 Timba Timosoara turnovers.

Law) produced a double-double by scoring 15 points and 15 rebounds. Five Ploiesti and four Timba Timosoara players scored in double figures. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Ploiesti have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. Defending champion moved-up to second place, which they share with Targu Mures. Newly promoted Timba Timosoara keeps the thirteenth position with 21 games lost. Ploiesti will face Giurgiu (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game.
