Al Karkh grabs 2015-2016 Iraqi league title for its 18th time in the club history !! - Mar 22, 2016

Al Karkh grabs 2015-2016 Iraqi league title for its 18th time in the club history !!

Finally Al Karkh won the Iraqi league title again after they beat Al Mina (The Black horse of the league this season) in the final serieis 4/2 "Games which played in the regular season counted in the series result"
the results of this 6 games were:
Regular Season: Game 1 (30th,Oct,2015): Al Mina 64-70 Al Karkh
Regular Season: Game 2 (12th,Feb,2016): Al Karkh 74-79 Al Mina
Final Four: Game 3 (05th,March,2016): Al Mina 61-84 Al Karkh
Finals: Game 4 (17th,March,2016): Al Karkh 63-75 Al Mina
Finals: Game 5 (19th,March,2016): Al Mina 72-79 Al Karkh
Finals: Game 6 (21th,March,2016): Al Karkh 75-66 Al Mina

Its the 18th league tittle in Al Karkh club history, but its the first league tittle since the Iraqi federation allow teams to sign with foreign players since season 2012-2013, the coach Mohammed Najjar won the league for his 8th time in his history, he took the head coach position of team in February.
On the other hand Al Mina was the biggest surprise in the league this season, the team wasnot between the top candidates to fight on the league tittle, but the coach of team Asad Alawi and management of team knew how to build good team compete on the tittle, they were the first team which started the preparation for the season.

Congrats for Al Karkh Staff and Players for winning the league tittle, and hardluck for Al Mina staff and players you had really great season guys !!
