The Regular Season in KBL is almost over. Almost everything is clear. There are only 3 rounds left.

The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Seoul: SK Knights (#8) and Samsung Thunders (#3). SK Knights (22-29) won against visiting Samsung Thunders (32-19) 91-85. Strangely Samsung Thunders outrebounded SK Knights 50-31 including a 24-8 advantage in offensive rebounds. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when SK Knights made 7 blocks. The best player for the winners was American guard Terrico White (196-90, college: Mississippi) who scored 32 points and 4 assists. International guard Sun-Hyung Kim (187-88) chipped in 21 points. The former international forward Ricardo Ratliffe (203-89, college: Missouri) produced a double-double by scoring 21 points and 19 rebounds for the guests. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. SK Knights have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain eighth place with 22-29 record. Samsung Thunders at the other side keep the third position with 19 games lost. SK Knights are looking forward to face league's second-placed Goyang Orions in Daegu in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Samsung Thunders will play on the road against Sonic Boom KT in Busan and are hoping to win this game.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Daegu. Second ranked Goyang Orions faced 4th placed Mobis Phoebus. Host Goyang Orions (34-17) defeated guests from Ulsan (27-25) 74-70. American forward Aaron Haynes (201-81, college: Boise St.) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 24 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Seung-Hyun Lee contributed with 17 points and 8 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Goyang Orions' coach Il-Seung Choo allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. American guard Nate Miller (193-87, college: Bowling Green) answered with 24 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists for Mobis Phoebus. Goyang Orions have a solid series of four victories in a row. Defending champion maintains second place with 34-17 record having just two points less than leader Anyang KGC. Mobis Phoebus at the other side keep the fourth position with 25 games lost. Goyang Orions will play against SK Knights (#8) in Seoul in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Mobis Phoebus will play at home against Dongbu Promy (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Anyang KGC delivered the 36th victory on Saturday night. This time they beat 10th ranked KCC Egis (16-36) 73-66 in Jeonju. The game was dominated by American players. It was a great evening for David Simon who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 14 rebounds.

Anyang KGC will meet LG Sakers (#7) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. KCC Egis will have a break next round.
The game in Inchon was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Dongbu Promy (25-26) played at the court of 6th ranked ET Land Elephants (24-28). Dongbu Promy managed to secure a 6-point victory 77-71. It was an exceptional evening for Wendell McKines who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 10 rebounds. Dongbu Promy's coach Sei Bum Lee used a ten-player rotation saving starting five for next games. Dongbu Promy maintains fifth place with 25-26 record.
