There was a change at the Premier League leadership position after last games. The most important game of round 8 took place in Al Muharraq between two undefeated teams where Muharraq crushed Al Hala (7-1) 85-65 on Wednesday night. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Al Hala. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Undefeated Muharraq (8-0) have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader. Defending champion Al Hala dropped to the second place with one game lost. They share the position with Al Ahli. They were replaced at the leadership position by Muharraq. Al Hala will play next round against strong Al Manama trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Muharraq will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Sitra on the road.
Very significant was Sitra's (#6) 66-62 road victory against 5th ranked Issa Town. Sitra (5-3) moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Hidd. Issa Town lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the seventh position with four games lost. Sitra will play against league's leader Muharraq in Al Muharraq in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Issa Town will play on the road against Al Ahli (#3) in Manama and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Al Najma has finally registered their first victory this season after seven consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat Samaheej (0-8) 100-53 on Friday. Al Najma (1-7) left bottom position moving up to tenth place, which they share with Al Ittihad. It was Samaheej's eighth loss in a row. Newly promoted team still closes the standings with eight games lost. Al Najma will meet higher ranked Bahrain Club (#8) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Samaheej will play against Nuwaidrat (#9) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 8: Bahrain Club lost to Hidd on the opponent's court 55-62. Nuwaidrat unfortunately lost to Al Ahli in a home game 63-75. Al Manama rolled over Al Ittihad on the road 84-59.



Hidd - Bahrain Club 62-55

Rather expected game when 8th ranked Bahrain Club (2-6) was defeated on the road by sixth ranked Hidd (5-3) 62-55 on Friday. Hidd moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Sitra. Bahrain Club lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with six games lost. They share it with Nuwaidrat. Hidd will meet Al Ittihad (#10) in the next round where they are favorite. Bahrain Club's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Manama Al Najma.

Nuwaidrat - Al Ahli 63-75

Very predictable result when third ranked Al Ahli (7-1) defeated on the road 9th ranked Nuwaidrat (2-6) 75-63 on Thursday. Al Ahli have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Al Hala. Nuwaidrat at the other side dropped to the eighth position with six games lost. They share it with Bahrain Club. Al Ahli will meet at home Issa Town (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Nuwaidrat will play against Samaheej in Manama and hope to secure a win.

Al Ittihad - Al Manama 59-84

Not a big story in a game when 10th ranked Al Ittihad (1-7) was rolled over at home by fourth ranked Al Manama (6-2) 84-59 on Wednesday. Al Manama have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 6-2 record. Al Ittihad lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the tenth place with seven games lost. They share the position with Al Najma. Al Manama will meet at home league's second-placed Al Hala in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Al Ittihad will play against Hidd (#5).
