D'Or Fischer
The Regular Season in Superleague just ended. The round was exceptionally exciting as three games ended with a tiny margin. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most surprising game was another loss of top-ranked Budivelnyk (28-11) on the court of sixth ranked BC Donetsk on Tuesday night. Visitors were defeated by BC Donetsk 80-69. The hosts trailed by 3 points after three quarters before their 24-10 charge, which allowed them to win the game. BC Donetsk looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. It was a good game for American-Trinidad and Tobago center D'or Fischer (211-81, college: W.Virginia) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 13 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists. American guard Curtis Millage (185-81, college: Arizona St.) contributed with 21 points and 4 assists for the winners. American forward Leo Lyons (206-87, college: Missouri, agency: Edge Sports) replied with 16 points and 9 rebounds for Budivelnyk. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion maintains sixth position with 23-16 record. Budivelnyk at the other side still keeps top place with 11 games lost.
Another exciting game for Khimik (24-15) which played on the court of BC Donetsk (23-16). Fourth ranked Khimik saved the game by a tiny margin of three points 93-90. Canadian guard Devoe Joseph (193-90, college: Oregon, agency: Interperformances) scored 25 points to lead the charge for the winners and Sava Lesic chipped in 15 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) during the contest. Khimik's coach Zvezdan Mitrovic allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. The best for the losing side was Lithuanian power forward Darius Songaila (204-78, college: Wake Forest, agency: Priority Sports) with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Khimik maintains fourth position with 24-15 record, which they share with Halychyna. Defending champion BC Donetsk keeps the sixth place with 16 games lost.
An interesting game for Azovmash (25-14) which hosted in Mariupol one of their biggest challengers Khimik (24-15). Third ranked Azovmash managed to get a 12-point victory 91-79. Miroslav Raduljica notched a double-double by scoring 27 points and 10 rebounds to lead the effort. Even a double-double of 14 points and 13 assists by Willie Deane did not help to save the game for Khimik. Khimik's coach Zvezdan Mitrovic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Azovmash have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Ferro-ZNTU. Loser Khimik keeps the fourth position with 15 games lost.

Eleventh-ranked Dnipro (15-24) was very close to win a game against fifth ranked Halychyna (24-15) in Lviv. Halychyna managed to secure only two-point victory 69-67. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Vladan Vukosavljevic who had a double-double by scoring 23 points and 14 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Halychyna moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Khimik. Dnipro at the other side keeps the eleventh position with 24 games lost.
Twelfth-ranked BC Odessa (14-25) used its home court advantage to challenge third ranked Azovmash (25-14) on Friday. The visitors from Mariupol managed to secure only three-point victory 69-66. However their fans expected much easier game. It was a good game for Simonas Serapinas who led his team to a victory with 22 points and 8 rebounds. BC Odessa's coach Oleg Yushkin tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game.
