N.C. Zebras' fans can finally celebrate the first win of their team after four consecutive losses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Kwazulu, where they outplayed Marlins (3-5) 70-46 on Saturday. N.C. Zebras maintains tenth position with 1-4 record. It was Marlins' third loss in a row. They keep the seventh place with five games lost. N.C. Zebras are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Eagles (#11) in the next round. Marlins will have a break next round.
The game in Kwazulu was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked Limpopo Pride (5-2) played at the court of 7th ranked Marlins (3-5). Limpopo Pride managed to secure a 8-point victory 71-63. Limpopo Pride moved-up to third place. Marlins lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with five games lost. Limpopo Pride will play against league's second-placed Magic in Johannesburg in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Marlins will have a break next round.
The game in Cape was also quite interesting. Top-ranked Magic (5-0) played at the court of 6th ranked Mountaineers (3-2). Magic defeated Mountaineers 94-78 on Sunday. Undefeated Magic have an impressive five-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains second position with 5-0 record behind leader Soweto P. Mountaineers at the other side keep the sixth place with two games lost. Magic will meet Limpopo Pride (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Mountaineers will play against N.C. Zebras and hope to secure a win.

Windbreakers unfortunately lost to Mpumalanga R. in Mbombela 58-75. Free State W. managed to beat N.C. Zebras at home 90-86.

Limpopo Pride - W.C. Mountaineers 76-58

Loser Mountaineers keep the sixth position with two games lost. Limpopo Pride will meet at home league's second-placed Magic in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.

Free State W. - E.C. Windbreakers 64-48

Rather expected game when 9th ranked E.C. Windbreakers (1-3) lost on the road to seventh ranked Warriors (4-4) 64-48 on Saturday. Warriors moved-up to fifth place. E.C. Windbreakers lost third consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with three games lost. Warriors will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. E.C. Windbreakers will play against the league's leader Panthers (#1) in Johannesburg and hope to win that game.
gschID: 498544


Mpumalanga R. - E.C. Windbreakers 75-58

The game between closely ranked teams ended with eighth ranked Rhinos' (3-6) home victory over 9th ranked E.C. Windbreakers (1-3) in Mbombela 75-58 on Friday. Rhinos maintains eighth position with 3-6 record. E.C. Windbreakers lost third consecutive game. They keep the ninth place with three games lost. Rhinos will meet at home league's second-placed Magic in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. E.C. Windbreakers will play against the league's leader Panthers (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
gschID: 498543


Free State W. - N.C. Zebras 90-86

Not a big story in a game when 10th ranked N.C. Zebras (1-4) lost on the road to seventh ranked Warriors (4-4) 90-86 on Friday. Warriors moved-up to fifth place. Loser N.C. Zebras keep the tenth position with four games lost. Warriors will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. N.C. Zebras will play against Eagles (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
