There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in TB2L. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most exciting game of round 32 in the TB2L took place in Istanbul. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of second-ranked Yesilgiresun (22-10) to sixteenth ranked Pertevniyal (13-19) 59-58 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Yesilgiresun. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Anthony Brown (203-86, college: Oklahoma St., agency: KMG Sports Management) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and the other American import guard Justin Gray (188-84, college: Wake Forest, agency: Higher Vision Sports) who added 12 points and 4 assists (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!) during the contest. Pertevniyal's coach Alaaddin Yakan used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American guard Alex Gordon (184-85, college: Vanderbilt) responded with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists. Pertevniyal have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with 4 other teams. Newly promoted Yesilgiresun keeps the second position with ten games lost. They share it with Selcuk Univ.. Pertevniyal is looking forward to face higher ranked Akhisar Bld (#4) at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Yesilgiresun will play against Maliye Milli in Ankara and is hoping to win this game.
TB2L top team - Usak (24-8) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat sixth ranked Trabzonspor (20-12) 79-64. The winners were led by American forward Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) who scored that evening 23 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists and Ozcan Surucu supported him with 14 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Even 29 points by American point guard Khalid El-Amin (178-79, college: Connecticut) did not help to save the game for Trabzonspor. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Usak have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 24-8 record. Trabzonspor lost third consecutive game. They keep the sixth place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Darussafaka. Usak will play against bottom-ranked Izmir BSB (#18) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Trabzonspor will play against Istanbulspor (#17) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Balikesir was also quite interesting. 6th ranked Darussafaka (20-12) played at the court of eighth ranked Balikesir (19-13). Balikesir defeated Darussafaka 64-54 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Darussafaka. The best player for the winners was Cem Coskun who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 16 rebounds. LaRon Dendy produced 21 points and 7 rebounds for the guests. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Newly promoted Balikesir maintains eighth position with 19-13 record. Darussafaka at the other side keeps the sixth place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Trabzonspor. Balikesir will meet Baskent Genclik (#14) in the next round where they are favorite. Darussafaka will play against Gelisim (#12) in Izmir and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Ankara. It ended with only one-point home defeat of 12th ranked Pi Koleji (13-19) to fifteenth ranked Baskent Genclik (13-19) 74-73 in the fight for the twelfth place. KZell Wesson saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 20 rebounds and 5 blocks. Pi Koleji's coach Levent Lule rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Baskent Genclik moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with 4 other teams including defeated Pi Koleji. Baskent Genclik's next round opponent will be higher ranked Balikesir (#8) at home and it may be quite challenging game.
Important game to mention about took place in Izmir. Fourteenth ranked Gelisim (13-19) saved a 2-point victory at home edging higher ranked Vestel (17-15) 75-73 on Friday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. Worth to mention a great performance of Jermaine Dearman who helped to win the game recording 30 points and 6 rebounds. Vestel's coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Gelisim moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with 4 other teams. Vestel lost third consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with 15 games lost. Gelisim will face Final Genclik (#16) in Bursa in the next round.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 32: bottom-ranked Izmir BSB lost to Akhisar Bld on the opponent's court 66-78. Istanbulspor was outscored by Bandirma Kir. in a home game 48-69. Final Genclik was rolled over Selcuk Univ. on the road 104-70. Maliye Milli defeated Istanbul B.B. on its own court 83-77.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 22 points and 15 rebounds by Emre Ozpulat of Akhisar Bld.


Usak - Trabzonspor 79-64

Four Usak players scored in double figures. Even 29 points by American point guard Khalid El-Amin (178-79, college: Connecticut) did not help to save the game for Trabzonspor. Forward Kadir Cipa (205-88) added 9 points and 11 rebounds for the guests. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Usak have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 24-8 record. Trabzonspor lost third consecutive game. They keep the sixth place with 12 games lost.

Istanbulspor - Bandirma Kir. 48-69

Very predictable result when tenth ranked Bandirma Kir. (16-16) smashed on the road 17th ranked Istanbulspor (4-28) 69-48 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Bandirma Kir..

Selcuk Univ. - Final Genclik 104-70

Not a big story in a game in Konya where 12th ranked Final Genclik (13-19) was rolled over by third ranked Selcuk Universitesi (22-10) 104-70 on Saturday. The game without a history.

Balikesir - Darussafaka 64-54

The game in Balikesir was also quite interesting. 6th ranked Darussafaka (20-12) played at the court of eighth ranked Balikesir (19-13). Balikesir defeated Darussafaka 64-54 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Darussafaka. The game was mostly controlled by Balikesir. Darussafaka managed to win fourth quarter 18-14.
