This is still too early stage of the Regular Season in KBL and we should expect many changes in upcoming rounds. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was the first loss of Mobis Phoebus (6-1) in Seoul on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by fifth ranked SK Knights (4-3) 86-76. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. SK Knights looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. American power forward Leon Williams (203-86, college: Ohio) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 10 rebounds and 4 blocks. American-Dominican guard ODarien Bassett (189-86, college: Troy) contributed with 18 points and 7 assists for the winners. SK Knights' coach Kyungeun Moon used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The former international forward Ricardo Ratliffe (203-89, college: Missouri) answered with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 12 rebounds for Mobis Phoebus. Defending champion moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams. Mobis Phoebus at the other side still keep top position with one game lost. SK Knights is looking forward to face Anyang KGC (#6) at home in the next round. Mobis Phoebus will play against the league's second-placed ET Land Elephants (#2) in Inchon and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Jeonju. Sixth ranked Sonic Boom KT (4-3) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging second-ranked KCC Egis (4-3) 93-91 in the game for the second place. Ji-Hoon Park (-95) stepped up and scored 24 points and 5 rebounds for the winners and Marcus Landry chipped in 18 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. American Brandon Brown (201-85, college: CS San Bernar.) responded with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 13 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Sonic Boom KT moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams including defeated KCC Egis. Sonic Boom KT will play against Goyang Orions (#9) in Daegu in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Anyang KGC. The best player for the winners was Ricardo Ratliffe who had a double-double by scoring 23 points and 19 rebounds.
