There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, derby games and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was the first loss of undefeated Sitra (3-1) at the home court on Monday night. Hosts were edged by seventh ranked Hidd (3-2) 62-60. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Sitra. Hidd moved-up to sixth place. Sitra at the other side dropped to the fourth position with one game lost. They share it with Issa Town. Hidd are looking forward to face higher ranked Al Ahli (#3) in Manama in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Sitra will play on the road against Al Najma in Manama and is hoping to win this game.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Manama: Al Ahli (#4) and Al Manama (#6). Al Manama was defeated at home 72-77 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. Al Ahli (4-1) moved-up to third place. Al Manama at the other side dropped to the seventh position with two games lost. Al Ahli will play against Hidd (#6) in the next round. Al Manama's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Manama to the arena Samaheej.
Premier League top team - Muharraq (5-0) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat tenth ranked Nuwaidrat (1-4) 78-68.
