O'Darien
Bassett
There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

Top ranked Samsung Thunders (22-8) recorded its eighth loss in Seoul on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by third ranked Goyang Orions (21-10) 89-79. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Samsung Thunders. The guests trailed by 9 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 10 points. Goyang Orions shot the lights out from three sinking 13 long-distance shots on high 61.9 percentage. The best player for the winners was American-Dominican guard O'Darien Bassett (189-86, college: Troy) who scored 17 points and 9 assists. American forward Aaron Haynes (201-81, college: Boise St.) chipped in 14 points and 11 rebounds. The former international forward Ricardo Ratliffe (203-89, college: Missouri) produced a double-double by scoring 24 points and 15 rebounds for the hosts. Samsung Thunders' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Goyang Orions have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains third position with 21-10 record behind leader Samsung Th. Samsung Thunders at the other side still keep top place with eight games lost. Goyang Orions are looking forward to face Mobis Phoebus (#6) in Ulsan in the next round. Samsung Thunders will play on the road against LG Sakers (#7) in Changwon and are hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Goyang Orions (21-10) against tenth ranked Sonic Boom KT (7-23) on Sunday night. Visiting Goyang Orions were defeated by Sonic Boom KT in Busan 94-78. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Goyang Orions. American power forward Leon Williams (203-86, college: Ohio) orchestrated the victory by scoring 29 points and 6 rebounds (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field). Jae-Do Lee contributed with 9 points and 9 assists for the winners. American forward Aaron Haynes (201-81, college: Boise St.) replied with 34 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 4 assists for Goyang Orions. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Sonic Boom KT maintains tenth position with 7-23 record. Defending champion Goyang Orions keep the third place with ten games lost. Sonic Boom KT will play against higher ranked SK Knights (#9) in Seoul in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Goyang Orions will play on the road against Mobis Phoebus (#6) in Ulsan and hope to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game was played in Jeonju where host KCC Egis (#8) won against higher ranked Dongbu Promy 72-63 on Saturday evening. Leo Lyons scored 28 points and 7 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. Rodrique Benson responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds. Dongbu Promy's coach Sei Bum Lee tested eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. KCC Egis maintains eighth position with 11-20 record. Loser Dongbu Promy keeps the fourth place with 13 games lost. KCC Egis will meet higher ranked ET Land Elephants (#5) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Dongbu Promy will play against the league's second-placed Anyang KGC and will have a slim chance for a victory.
The game in Changwon was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked ET Land Elephants (16-15) played at the court of 7th ranked LG Sakers (12-18). ET Land Elephants did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 82-65. Ivan Aska notched 25 points to lead the effort. ET Land Elephants maintains fifth position with 16-15 record.

The game in Ulsan was also quite interesting. Fifth ranked ET Land Elephants (16-15) played at the court of 6th ranked Mobis Phoebus (14-16). ET Land Elephants managed to secure a 4-point victory 64-60 on Saturday. The best player for the winners was Victor Cuthbert who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 11 rebounds. ET Land Elephants' coach Seung Hwan Kim used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. ET Land Elephants maintains fifth position with 16-15 record.
