An interesting game for Homenetmen (11-1) which hosted in Beirut 4th ranked Al Moutahed (6-6). First ranked Homenetmen managed to get a 14-point victory 86-72. Al Moutahed was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Homenetmen looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. It was a good game for American forward Dewayne Jackson (203-90, college: Morgan St., agency: Higher Vision Sports) who led his team to a victory with 27 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals. The former international swingman Fadi El-Khatib (198-79) contributed with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Homenetmen's coach Joe Nebhan used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American guard Dewarick Spencer (192-82, college: Arkansas St., agency: Higher Vision Sports) replied with 24 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for Al Moutahed. Homenetmen have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 11-1 record. Al Moutahed at the other side keeps the fourth place with six games lost.

An interesting game for Al Riyadi (9-3) which hosted in Beirut one of their biggest challengers Louaize (6-6). Third ranked Al Riyadi had an easy win 118-69. Worth to mention a great performance of Nigerian power forward Alade Aminu (210-87, college: Georgia Tech, agency: Three Eye Sports) who helped to win the game recording 23 points and 6 rebounds (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field) and Mohamad Haidar who added 19 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) during the contest. The best for the losing side was American Travis McKie (201-92, college: Wake Forest, agency: Diamond Sports) with 18 points and 6 rebounds.

The winners were led by Omar Thomas who had that evening a double-double by scoring 27 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists. Even 34 points (!!!), 5 rebounds and 4 assists by Terrell Stoglin did not help to save the game for Sagesse. Sagesse's coach Fuad Abou Chakra rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help.
