Belfius Mons-Hainaut – Filou Oostende (0-1)
Belfius Mons-Hainaut had a difficult first round on the field of Oostende (84-66). The men of Verdan Bosnic had resisted in the beginning of the game thanks to the hot hand of Marcus Tyus (15 points in the first 10 minutes). But Mons-Hainaut had then collapsed in the second quarter by not being able to score five points against the opposing defensive pressure. The gap was already big at halftime (46-27) and the game was played. Physically dominated, Mons could not reverse the situation.
Mons-Hainaut will try to react at home in the second round as it was the case against Antwerp in the previous round. Last season, in the playoff final, Mons beat Ostend in Game 2 after losing Game 1 on the road. Will the scenario be repeated? You can follow this game on TV on Pickx Sports, VOO Sports and Play Sports, or stream it on BNXT.TV. Livestats are also available.

Leuven Bears – Kangoeroes Mechelen (1-0)
Beaten at home on Tuesday (63-72), Kangoeroes Mechelen is in danger before the second leg at Leuven Bears. Mechelen will have to be more efficient and precise in their shooting to hurt Leuven. In the first game, the Kangoeroes lacked consistency throughout the game. Only the second quarter was dominated by the home team, while Leuven put constant pressure.
For the Leuven Bears, it will be necessary to hold on physically because it will already be their fifth playoff game in nine days. And the rotations are limited. In the first round, coach Eddy Casteels could count on four efficient players offensively: Cebasek (21 points), Allen (15 points), Vanderhaegen (15 points), Young (11 points). The Leuven Bears can take a nice option on the final if they win. The game will be streamed on BNXT.TV. The livestats can also be viewed.
