Premier League is at the halfway of the Second Stage and there are still another 4 rounds left. Coincidentally all visitors won their games. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, derby games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of Issa Town (0-1) at the home court on Monday night. Hosts were defeated by top-ranked Sitra (2-0) 68-62. Sitra maintains seventh position in League with 2-0 record. Newly promoted Issa Town still closes the standings with one game lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.

Nuwaidrat will play against the league's leader Al Manama to get more than just one victory in their record.
Al Ittihad has registered their first victory this season after one consecutive losses. The win is especially important as it came on the road game in Manama, where they defeated Samaheej (0-2) 92-76 on Monday. Al Ittihad (1-1) left bottom position moving up to ninth place in League. Samaheej at the other side, also newcomer in the league, still closes the standings with two games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
