Michael
Efevberha
The most shocking disappointment of round 10 in the Pepsi LBL was a home defeat of 7th ranked Mayrouba (3-7) to eighth ranked Sagesse (4-6) 81-76 in the game for the seventh place. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Mayrouba won third quarter 24-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Strangely Mayrouba outrebounded Sagesse 53-39 including 38 on the defensive glass. Nigerian-American guard Michael Efevberha (193-84, college: CS Northridge) had a double-double by scoring 22 points, 17 rebounds and 8 assists to lead the charge for the winners and American guard Terrell Stoglin (185-91, college: Maryland) chipped in 30 points and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side American forward Emmanuel Jones (200-85, college: UTRGV) responded with 26 points and 6 rebounds. Sagesse moved-up to seventh place. Mayrouba at the other side dropped to the eighth position with seven games lost. They share it with Champville. Sagesse are looking forward to face league's second-placed Byblos at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Mayrouba will play against Al Riyadi (#3) and is hoping to win this game.
Fourth-ranked Louaize (5-5) gave a tough game to first ranked Homenetmen (9-1) in Beirut. Homenetmen managed to secure only three-point victory 86-83. However their fans expected easier game. The former international swingman Fadi Khatib (198-79) notched 25 points and 4 assists to lead the effort and Dewayne Jackson supported him with 27 points and 4 steals. Even 19 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals by international guard Geron Johnson (190-92, college: Memphis) did not help to save the game for Louaize. Homenetmen maintains first position with 9-1 record. Louaize lost third consecutive game. They keep the fourth place with five games lost. They share the position with Tadamon and Moutahed. Homenetmen will play against Tadamon (#4) in Zouk in the next round. Louaize will play at home against Champville and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Third ranked Al Riyadi (7-3) beat at home 7th ranked Champville (3-7) by 11 points 92-81, which is the biggest margin this round on Wednesday night. Ahmad Ismail fired a double-double by scoring 15 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Patrick Rembert produced 24 points, 8 assists and 5 steals for lost side. Al Riyadi have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains third position with 7-3 record having just two points less than leader Homenetmen. Loser Champville dropped to the eighth place with seven games lost. They share the position with Mayrouba. Al Riyadi will meet Mayrouba (#9) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Champville will play against Louaize in Zouk and hope to secure a win.

In the last two games of round 10 Tadamon won against Hoops on the opponent's court 80-70. Byblos managed to outperform Moutahed in a home game 82-77.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 32 points and 10 rebounds by Maurice Kemp of Tadamon.
