There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in Superleague. What a coincidence that all visitors won their games.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Al Shurtah (17-3) in Baghdad on Friday night. Hosts were edged by Al Nift (17-2) 93-90. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Al Shurtah. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Al Nift have an impressive series of twelve victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader. Al Shurtah at the other side dropped to the second place with three games lost. Al Nift's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Baghdad Iraqi Airways.
The game in Najef supposed to be also worth to mention about. Sixth ranked Al Karkh (12-8) played at the court of 8th ranked Al-Tadamoun (7-13). Al Karkh did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 88-68. Defending champion moved-up to fifth place. Al-Tadamoun lost their fourth game in a row. They keep the eighth position with 13 games lost. Al Karkh will play against Al Mina (#6) in Basra in the next round. Al-Tadamoun will play at home against the league's second-placed Al Shurtah and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Basra was also quite interesting. Third ranked Al Kahraba (15-5) played at the court of 5th ranked Al Mina (11-7). Al Kahraba managed to secure a 4-point victory 85-81 on Friday. The victory was the fifth consecutive win for Al Kahraba. They maintain third place with 15-5 record having just one point less than leader Al Nift. Loser Al Mina dropped to the sixth position with seven games lost. Al Kahraba's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Baghdad Al Suleikh.

In the last game of round 21 Al Hilla smashed Iraqi Airways on the road 93-74.

Al-Tadamoun - Al Karkh 68-88

Iraqi Airways - Al Hilla 74-93

No shocking result in a game when seventh ranked Al Hilla (11-9) crushed 9th ranked Iraqi Airways (5-15) in Baghdad 93-74 on Friday. Newly promoted Al Hilla maintains seventh place with 11-9 record. Iraqi Airways at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keep the ninth position with 15 games lost. Al Hilla will meet at home bottom-ranked An Nasiriyah (#12) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Iraqi Airways' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Baghdad to the arena Al Nift.
