Mohammad
Hassanzadeh
The biggest surprise of round 8 in Superleague was guest Naft Abadan's (6-2) road victory over one of their biggest challengers Azad (5-3) 68-65 on Monday evening. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The guests trailed by 3 points after three quarters before their 23-17 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Naft Abadan forced 20 Azad turnovers. The best player for the winners was international Mohammad Hassanzadeh (203-90, agency: Three Eye Sports) who scored 15 points and 9 rebounds. The former international point guard Sajjad Mashayekhi (180-94) chipped in 22 points. American power forward Joseph Jones (206-86, college: Texas A&M) produced 14 points and 6 rebounds for the hosts. Azad's coach Farzad Kouhian tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Naft Abadan moved-up to second place, which they share with Arak. Azad at the other side dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. Naft Abadan is looking forward to face Tabriz (#5) at home in the next round. Azad will play against Shahrdari Gorgan and is hoping to win this game.
Leader Petrochimi delivered the seventh victory. This time they crushed 6th ranked Chemidor (4-4) 94-75 in Bandar Imam. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Chemidor. American point guard Gerald Robinson (185-89, college: Georgia) orchestrated the victory by scoring 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Rouzbeh Arghavan contributed with 23 points (perfect from the field making all eight shots !!!) for the winners. American guard Daequan Cook (195-87, college: Ohio St.) replied with 31 points and 4 assists for Chemidor. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion maintains first position with 7-1 record. Chemidor at the other side dropped to the fifth place with four games lost. They share the position with Tabriz. Petrochimi will play against bottom-ranked Shiraz a.s Pipe (#10) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Chemidor will play against Kashan (#8) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Shiraz a.s Pipe (0-8) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 74-69 loss to eighth ranked Army (3-5) in Tehran on Monday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Mohammad Torabi who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points and 13 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Army's coach used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. Amir Allahverdi responded with 23 points. Army moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Kashan. Newly promoted Shiraz a.s Pipe still closes the standings with eight games lost. Army will meet league's second-placed Arak on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Shiraz a.s Pipe will play against the league's leader Petrochimi (#1) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
The game in Tabriz was also worth to mention about. Second ranked Arak (6-2) played at the court of 5th ranked Tabriz (4-4). Arak managed to secure a 8-point victory 79-71. The winners were led by Daniel Williams who had that evening a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds (perfect from downtown making all five shots). Tabriz's coach Mehran Hatami let to play eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Arak have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 6-2 record behind leader Petrochimi, which they share with Naft Abadan. Tabriz at the other side keeps the fifth place with four games lost. Arak's next round opponent will be Army (#7) in Tehran where they are favorite. Tabriz will play on the road against Naft Abadan and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 8 Gorgan defeated Kashan in a road game 86-72.
The best stats of 8th round was 36 points (!!!) and 14 rebounds by Filip Toncinic of Gorgan.
