Round 11 in KBL means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Seoul where host SK Knights (10-4) beat league's leader ET Land Elephants (9-4) 83-77 on Thursday evening. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But ET Land Elephants won third quarter 22-15. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was American forward Aaron Haynes (201-81, college: Boise St.) who had a double-double by scoring 14 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. International guard Sun-Hyung Kim (187-88) chipped in 21 points and 5 rebounds. American forward Carlos Powell (199-83, college: S.Carolina) produced 26 points and 5 rebounds for the guests. ET Land Elephants' coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. SK Knights keep a position of league leader, which they share with Mobis Phoebus. ET Land Elephants at the other side dropped to the third place with four games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Mobis Phoebus. ET Land Elephants will play next round against league's leader Mobis Phoebus trying to make it back to the top of the standings. SK Knights will try to continue on its current victory against ninth ranked Dongbu Promy in Wonju.
Important game to mention about took place in Anyang. Fourth ranked Anyang KGC (9-5) saved a 1-point victory at home edging 7th ranked Samsung Thunders (6-8) 83-82 on Friday evening. American forward Juan Pattillo (197-88, college: W.Kentucky) saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 12 rebounds. Jung-Hyun Lee contributed with 19 points for the winners. American power forward Darian Townes (208-84) answered with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 10 rebounds for Samsung Thunders. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Anyang KGC have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 9-5 record. Samsung Thunders at the other side keep the seventh position with eight games lost. They share it with Sonic Boom KT. Anyang KGC will play against bottom-ranked KCC Egis (#10) in Jeonju in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Samsung Thunders will play at home against Goyang Orions in Daegu and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Seoul: Samsung Thunders (#7) and SK Knights (#3). SK Knights were defeated at home 54-64 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. It was a great evening for Darian Townes who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 17 rebounds. Bu Kyung Choi responded with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 14 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Samsung Thunders maintains seventh place with 6-8 record, which they share with Sonic Boom KT. Loser SK Knights still keep top position with four games lost. They share it with Mobis Phoebus. Samsung Thunders will meet at home higher ranked Goyang Orions (#5) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. SK Knights will play against Dongbu Promy (#9) in Wonju and hope to secure a win.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Jeonju. Local KCC Egis (2-13) were outscored by third ranked Mobis Phoebus (10-4) 68-48.

Anyang KGC - Dongbu Promy 89-79
