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.

An interesting game for Yesilgiresun (21-9) which hosted in Giresun second-best Trabzonspor (20-10). Third ranked Yesilgiresun managed to get a 9-point victory 77-68. It ended at the same time the nine-game winning streak of Trabzonspor. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Trabzonspor trailed by 19 points at halftime and as many as 21 after three quarters before a 29-17 last quarter charge cut the deficit to 68-77 at the end of the game. Yesilgiresun made 22-of-26 free shots (84.6 percent) during the game. 25 personal fouls committed by Trabzonspor helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for American guard Alex Gordon (184-85, college: Vanderbilt) who led his team to a victory with 32 points and 6 assists. The other American import center John Ofoegbu (206-84, college: Idaho St.) contributed with 15 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. American point guard Khalid El-Amin (178-79, college: Connecticut) replied with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) for Trabzonspor. Trabzonspor's coach Hasan Ozmeric rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Yesilgiresun moved-up to second place. Trabzonspor at the other side dropped to the third position with ten games lost. They share it with Selcuk Univ. and Maliye Milli. Yesilgiresun are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Izmir BSB (#18) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Trabzonspor will play against Akhisar Bld (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
TB2L top team - Usak (22-8) added another victory to their record. This time they beat fifteenth ranked Baskent Genclik (11-19) 71-63. American forward Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) scored 25 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and Eric Buckner chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds during the contest. Usak's coach Ozan Bulkaz allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. The best for the losing side was American forward KZell Wesson (201-77, college: La Salle) with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 18 rebounds. Usak maintains first position with 22-8 record. Baskent Genclik lost third consecutive game. They keep the fifteenth place with 19 games lost. They share the position with Pertevniyal. Usak will play against Bandirma Kir. (#10) in Balikesir in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Baskent Genclik will play at home against Istanbulspor (#17) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Tenth-ranked Bandirma Kir. (15-15) was very close to win a game against sixth ranked Akhisar Bld (19-11) on Saturday. Akhisar Bld managed to secure only three-point victory 74-71. However their fans expected much easier game. Tyrone Nelson notched 15 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the effort. Even a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds by Tufan Onen did not help to save the game for Bandirma Kir.. Akhisar Bld have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain sixth position with 19-11 record, which they share with Darussafaka. Loser Bandirma Kir. keeps the tenth place with 15 games lost. Akhisar Bld will meet higher ranked Trabzonspor (#5) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Bandirma Kir. will play against the league's leader Usak (#1) and hope to secure a win and be promoted back to the TBL just one year after relegation.
The game between 17th ranked Istanbulspor (4-26) and seventh ranked Darussafaka (19-11) in Istanbul ended with biggest points difference. Guests from Istanbul outscored Istanbulspor 95-56. The best player for the winners was Marcus Hall who had a double-double by scoring 17 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Darussafaka moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Akhisar Bld. Istanbulspor lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the seventeenth position with 26 games lost. Darussafaka's next round opponent will be Pi Koleji (#12) in Ankara where they are favorite. Istanbulspor will play on the road against Baskent Genclik (#15) in Ankara and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 30: Istanbul B.B. was smashed by Selcuk Univ. on the road 99-66. Balikesir won against Vestel on its own court 69-56. Bottom-ranked Izmir BSB unfortunately lost to Pertevniyal in Istanbul 57-74. Pi Koleji rolled over Final Genclik at home 96-74. Maliye Milli defeated Gelisim on the opponent's court 77-70.
The most impressive performance of 30th round was 37 points (!!!) and 16 rebounds by Kaspars Kambala of Pi Koleji.


Usak - Baskent Genclik 71-63

TB2L top team - Usak (22-8) added another victory to their record. This time they beat fifteenth ranked Baskent Genclik (11-19) 71-63. Baskent Genclik was ahead by 8 points at the halftime before a 41-25 second half run of Usak. They brought some defensive toughness making 8 blocks. American forward Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) scored 25 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and the other American import forward Eric Buckner (208-90, college: Georgia St., agency: David Lee services) chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds during the contest. Usak's coach Ozan Bulkaz allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. The best for the losing side was American forward KZell Wesson (201-77, college: La Salle) with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 18 rebounds and swingman Melih Kabakci (200-82) scored 15 points and 5 rebounds. Usak maintains first position with 22-8 record. Baskent Genclik lost third consecutive game. They keep the fifteenth place with 19 games lost. They share the position with Pertevniyal.
