The remaining matches of the last day will be played on Saturday and Sunday. Among other things, the top match between Liège Panthers and Namur Capitale and Phantoms Boom-Sparta Laarne still sparkle on the bill. Castors Braine, who had lost the first leg in Mechelen and also the final of the Cup of Belgium in Vorst Nationaal against Kangoeroes, went looking for a prestige victory at home. The first quarter was for the Walloon-Brabant team: 23-15. Via Ziomara Morrison (22 points, 8 rebounds), Laure Resimont (13 points, 8 rebounds) and Lisa Berkani (12 points), Kangoeroes Mechelen took over the initiative: 34-36 (halfway) and 50-56 after three quarters. In the final quarter a nail biter followed and there were winning chances for both teams. After a thriller, the win remained via Reka Lelik (13 points, 8 rebounds), Emmeline Leblon (13 points), Jessica Lindstrom (10 points, 7 rebounds) and Mattea Tadic (12 points) in Stade Gaston Reiff.
