The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets.

Round 45 most important game was a victory of Goyang Orions over 3rd placed Samsung Thunders 86-79 on Sunday night. Strangely Samsung Thunders outrebounded Goyang Orions 40-25 including 25 on the defensive glass. It was a good game for American-Dominican guard O'Darien Bassett (189-86, college: Troy) who led his team to a victory with 17 points and 7 assists. American forward Aaron Haynes (201-81, college: Boise St.) contributed with 18 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. The former international forward Ricardo Ratliffe (203-89, college: Missouri) answered with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 15 rebounds for Samsung Thunders. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion maintains second place with 32-17 record having just two points less than leader Anyang KGC. Samsung Thunders lost third consecutive game. They keep the third position with 18 games lost. Goyang Orions are looking forward to face Dongbu Promy (#6) in Wonju in the next round. Samsung Thunders will play at home against KCC Egis and are hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.
Fifth-ranked ET Land Elephants (24-25) were very close to win a game against second ranked Goyang Orions (32-17) in Daegu. Goyang Orions managed to secure only two-point victory 65-63. However their fans expected easier game. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of ET Land Elephants. American forward Aaron Haynes (201-81, college: Boise St.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds for the winners and O'Darien Bassett chipped in 10 points and 5 assists. Goyang Orions' coach Il-Seung Choo allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. The best for the losing side was American forward James Kelly (201-93, college: Marshall) with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 12 rebounds. Defending champion maintains second place with 32-17 record having just two points less than leader Anyang KGC. ET Land Elephants at the other side keep the fifth position with 25 games lost. They share it with Dongbu Promy. Goyang Orions will play against Dongbu Promy (#6) in Wonju in the next round. ET Land Elephants will play at home against the league's leader Anyang KGC and hope to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game for Anyang KGC (34-15) which hosted in Anyang 4th placed Mobis Phoebus (26-24). First ranked Anyang KGC had an easy win 81-66. David Simon nailed a double-double by scoring 21 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side. Anyang KGC's coach Yu-Wan Song used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest.
