There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, derby games and favorites losing the games.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Fukuoka Rizing (21-3) at the home court on Friday night. Hosts were edged by fourth ranked Tokyo HT (14-10) 92-89. It ended at the same time the 11-game winning streak of Fukuoka Rizing. American power forward Edward Morris (204-84, college: Pittsburg St.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals for the winners and point guard Yusuke Ikeda (180-88) chipped in 22 points and 4 assists. At the losing side Ghanian-British forward Matthew Bryan-Amaning (205-88, college: Washington) responded with 14 points and 9 rebounds. Fukuoka Rizing's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Tokyo HT maintains fourth place with 14-10 record. Fukuoka Rizing at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. Tokyo HT will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.

Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Aichi: Aisin AW (#5) and Toyoda Gosei (#8).
