The most important game in the last round took place in Anyang between second ranked SK Knights (5-2) and fourth ranked Anyang KGC (5-2) on Sunday night. SK Knights were defeated by Anyang KGC in a tough game on the road 63-67. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of SK Knights. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 4-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 67-63. It was a good game for American forward Juan Pattillo (197-88, college: W.Kentucky) who led his team to a victory with 25 points and 8 rebounds. International forward Hee-Jong Yang (194-84) contributed with 10 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Anyang KGC's coach Sang-Bum Lee used a ten-player rotation in such tough game.
