The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with derby games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Muharraq as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Muharraq smashed 8th ranked Bahrain Club in Al Muharraq 88-67. Muharraq have a solid four-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Bahrain Club lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with three games lost. They share the position with Al Ittihad and Nuwaidrat. Bahrain Club will play next round against Al Ittihad trying to get back on the winning streak. It will be a derby game for which supporters look forward to, where their team will face at home their local rival from Manama - Al Ittihad. Muharraq will try to continue on its current victory against tenth ranked Nuwaidrat on the road.
Undefeated Al Manama (2-1) recorded its first loss at the home court. Hosts were defeated by top-ranked Sitra (3-0) 62-51. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Al Manama. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Sitra have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Al Hala. Al Manama at the other side dropped to the fifth position with one game lost. They share it with Issa Town. Sitra will play against Hidd (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Al Manama will play against Al Ahli and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game for Al Hala (3-0) which played road game in Manama against their biggest opponent Al Ahli (3-1). Top-ranked Al Hala managed to get a 5-point victory 71-66. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Ahli. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Al Hala have a solid three-game winning streak.

Nuwaidrat's fans can celebrate the first win of their team after three consecutive loses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Manama, where they defeated Al Najma (0-4) 95-81. Nuwaidrat (1-3) left bottom position moving up to eighth place, which they share with Al Ittihad and Bahrain Club. It was Al Najma's fourth loss in a row.
