There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in D1. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, derby games and favorites losing the games.

D1 round 26 caused change at the leadership position. Third defeat of league's leader Kazma (13-3) against sixth ranked Al Jahraa (9-8) 83-76 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Kazma. Al Jahraa maintains sixth position with 9-8 record. Kazma at the other side dropped to the fourth place with three games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Al Kuwait. Kazma will play next round against Al Shabab trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Al Jahraa will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Kuwait City: Al Kuwait (#3) and Al Arabi (#5). Al Arabi was defeated at home 64-79 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. Al Kuwait (16-2) keeps a position of league leader. Al Arabi lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with nine games lost.
The game in Yarmouk was also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Al Qadsia (14-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Al Yarmook (6-11). Al Qadsia defeated Al Yarmook 72-61 on Wednesday. Al Qadsia have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. Loser Al Yarmook dropped to the ninth position with 11 games lost. Al Qadsia will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Al Yarmook will play against Al Salmiyah (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in An Nasr supposed to be also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked Al Qadsia (14-2) played at the court of 7th ranked Al Nasar (5-12). Al Qadsia smashed Al Nasar 95-57. Al Qadsia have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. Al Nasar lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the eighth position with 12 games lost. Al Qadsia will have a break next round. Al Nasar will play on the road against Al Sulaibikhat (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Kuwait City was also quite interesting. Third ranked Al Sahel (15-2) played at the court of 5th ranked Al Arabi (10-9). Al Sahel defeated Al Arabi 79-66 on Friday. Al Sahel have an impressive nine-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place. Al Arabi lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fifth position with nine games lost.
