There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in NBL. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

This derby game ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 7th ranked UCU Canons (4-5) to eighth ranked JKL Dolphins (4-5) 56-53 in the game for the seventh place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of UCU Canons. JKL Dolphins forced 19 UCU Canons turnovers. It was a good game for forward Brian Namake (-90) who led his team to a victory with 20 points and 6 rebounds. Derrick Mbusi contributed with 5 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. David Kongor replied with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds for UCU Canons. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. JKL Dolphins have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to seventh place, which they share with defeated UCU Canons. JKL Dolphins is looking forward to face league's leader Betway Power in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. UCU Canons will play against Our Saviour (#4) and are hoping to win this game.
An interesting game for KIU Titans (7-1) which hosted in Kampala one of their biggest challengers Our Saviour (6-3). Second ranked KIU Titans managed to get a 4-point victory 57-53. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Our Saviour. Forward Joseph Chuma (-91) had a double-double by scoring 13 points and 11 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Chris Omanye chipped in 12 points and 5 assists during the contest. KIU Titans' coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. The best for the losing side was guard Joseph Wacha (-91) with 17 points and 5 rebounds. KIU Titans have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 7-1 record behind leader Betway Power. Our Saviour at the other side keeps the third place with three games lost. They share the position with City Oilers. KIU Titans will play against Ndejje (#9) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Our Saviour will play against UCU Canons (#8) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in between Ndejje and City Oilers. Tenth ranked Ndejje (3-5) got a very close home victory over higher ranked City Oilers (6-3). Ndejje managed to escape with a 1-point win 59-58 on Friday evening. Gauthier Baderha notched 15 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists to lead the effort. Ndejje's coach used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Even a double-double of 15 points and 13 rebounds by Landry Ndikumana did not help to save the game for City Oilers. Ndejje moved-up to ninth place. Defending champion City Oilers dropped to the third position with three games lost. They share it with Our Saviour. Ndejje will meet league's second-placed KIU Titans in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. City Oilers will play against Sharing Youth and hope to secure a win.
The game between fourth ranked City Oilers (6-3) and 12th ranked UPDF (1-9) in Kampala ended with biggest points difference. City Oilers outscored guests from 79-53. The best player for the winners was Landry Ndikumana who had a double-double by scoring 16 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists. UPDF's coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Defending champion moved-up to third place, which they share with Our Saviour. UPDF lost sixth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom position with nine games lost. City Oilers' next round opponent will be Sharing Youth (#6).

There were no big surprises in other games of round 6: KCC Lions was beaten by Charging Rhinos on the road 74-61. Sharing Youth lost to UCU Canons on its own court 52-59. Sharing Youth managed to outperform Charging Rhinos in a road game 60-45. Pemba Warriors managed to beat Sharing Youth at home 71-65.
