There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in LNA.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Geneve. First ranked Geneve Lions faced 4th ranked Monthey. Host Geneve Lions (19-4) defeated guests from Monthey (12-11) 75-71. Monthey trailed by 16 points after 3 quarters before a 25-13 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 71-75 at the end of the game. The best player for the winners was the former international center Oliver Vogt (209-80) who scored 18 points and 9 rebounds. American point guard Kelvin Parker (183-82, college: NW Missouri St.) chipped in 17 points and 6 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Canadian point guard Hernst Laroche (185, college: N.Mexico St.) who recorded 14 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals. Geneve Lions have an impressive ten-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 19-4 record. Monthey at the other side dropped to the fifth place with 11 games lost. Geneve Lions are looking forward to face Starwings (#7) in Basel in the next round where they are favorite. Monthey will play at home against SAM Massagno and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Ninth-ranked SAM Massagno (4-20) made lots of trouble for sixth ranked Boncourt (9-14). Boncourt managed to secure only three-point victory 100-97. However their fans expected easier game. It was a good game for American swingman Shy Ely (194-87, college: Evansville, agency: Merit Sports) who led his team to a victory with 28 points and 5 assists (went 9 for 9 at the free throw line !!!). Daniel Ferguson contributed with 23 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American power forward Clint Chapman (208-89, college: Texas) replied with 30 points and 8 rebounds for SAM Massagno. SAM Massagno's coach Robbi Gubitosa rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Boncourt maintains sixth position with 9-14 record. SAM Massagno lost sixth consecutive game.
