Behnam
Yakhchali
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in Superleague.

Fifth-ranked Chemidor (9-7) gave a tough game to first ranked Petrochimi (14-2) in Tehran on Monday. The visitors from Bandar Imam managed to secure only three-point victory 85-82. However their fans expected much easier game. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Chemidor. The guests trailed by 8 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 7-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 85-82. Petrochimi made 16-of-20 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game. International Behnam Yakhchali (196-95) stepped up and scored 29 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field) for the winners and American swingman James White (201-82, college: Cincinnati, agency: Three Eye Sports) chipped in 27 points and 9 rebounds. American guard Daequan Cook (195-87, college: Ohio St.) responded with 31 points (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). Chemidor's coach Javad Rahmatipour rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending champion maintains first place with 14-2 record. Chemidor at the other side dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. They share it with Arak and Tabriz. Petrochimi are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Shiraz a.s Pipe (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Chemidor will play against Kashan (#7) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Abadan. Second ranked host Naft Abadan (13-3) defeated 3rd placed Azad (10-6) 75-60. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Azad. British power forward Ryan Richards (212-91, agency: Three Eye Sports) nailed a double-double by scoring 29 points and 15 rebounds for the winning side and Meisam Mirzaei accounted for 12 points and 11 rebounds. American swingman J.P. Prince (203-87, college: Tennessee) came up with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals for Azad in the defeat. Azad's coach Farzad Kouhian tested eleven players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Naft Abadan have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They maintain second place with 13-3 record behind leader Petrochimi. Azad at the other side keeps the third position with six games lost. Naft Abadan will play against Tabriz (#4) on the road in the next round. Azad will play against Shahrdari Gorgan and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Shiraz a.s Pipe will play against the league's leader Petrochimi (#1) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
The game in Arak was also worth to mention about. 4th placed Tabriz (9-7) played at the court of sixth ranked Arak (9-7). Arak managed to secure a 5-point victory 81-76. Arak moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Chemidor and Tabriz. Arak's next round opponent will be Army (#8) in Tehran.
