The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked SK Knights (27-7) in Seoul on Sunday night. Hosts were rolled over by seventh ranked Sonic Boom KT (16-18) 88-63. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of SK Knights. The game without a history. Sonic Boom KT led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 18-of-21 free shots (85.7 percent) during the game. American forward Jasper Johnson (203-83, college: Delta St.) orchestrated the victory by scoring 31 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). The former international forward Sung-Min Cho (197-83) contributed with 18 points for the winners. American center Courtney Sims (211-83, college: Michigan, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) replied with 16 points (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) for SK Knights. SK Knights' coach Mun Kyung Eun gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Sonic Boom KT moved-up to fifth place. SK Knights at the other side still keep top position with seven games lost. Sonic Boom KT are looking forward to face bottom-ranked KCC Egis (#10) in Jeonju in the next round where they are favorite. SK Knights' supporters also look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Seoul to the arena Samsung Thunders.
An interesting game for SK Knights (27-7) which played road game in Inchon against 3rd ranked ET Land Elephants (20-13). First ranked SK Knights managed to get a 6-point victory 72-66. American forward Aaron Haynes (201-81, college: Boise St.) had a double-double by scoring 21 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Bu Kyung Choi chipped in 12 points and 13 rebounds during the contest. SK Knights' coach Mun Kyung Eun allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American forward Carlos Powell (199-83, college: S.Carolina) responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists. SK Knights maintains first position with 27-7 record. ET Land Elephants lost third consecutive game. They keep the third place with 13 games lost. SK Knights' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Seoul to the arena Samsung Thunders.
An interesting game was also surprising home defeat of 4th ranked Anyang KGC (#4) in a game versus Dongbu Promy (#8) 80-70. Eric Sandrin notched a double-double by scoring 13 points and 14 rebounds to lead the effort. Dongbu Promy's coach Dong Hae Kang used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) by Kibwe Trim did not help to save the game for Anyang KGC. Dongbu Promy have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to seventh place, which they share with LG Sakers. Loser Anyang KGC keeps the fourth position with 16 games lost. Dongbu Promy will meet at home LG Sakers (#7) in the next round. Anyang KGC will play against Goyang Orions in Daegu and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked KCC Egis managed to get a sixth victory, breaking the six-game losing streak. This time they won against ninth-ranked Samsung Thunders in Jeonju 72-58. The best player for the winners was Chris Alexander who had a double-double by scoring 12 points and 12 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. KCC Egis maintains tenth position with 6-28 record. Samsung Thunders at the other side keep the ninth place with 21 games lost. KCC Egis' next round opponent will be higher ranked Sonic Boom KT (#5) in Busan and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
The game in Changwon was also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Anyang KGC (18-16) played at the court of 5th ranked LG Sakers (15-19). Anyang KGC managed to secure a 7-point victory 78-71 on Sunday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of LG Sakers. Jung-Hyun Lee orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points. LG Sakers' coach Jin Kim rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Anyang KGC maintains fourth position with 18-16 record. Loser LG Sakers dropped to the seventh place with 19 games lost. Anyang KGC will face Goyang Orions (#6) in Daegu in the next round. LG Sakers will play on the road against Dongbu Promy in Wonju and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
