Eighth-ranked Champville (4-9) gave a tough game to fifth ranked Al Moutahed (8-6) in Tripoli on Sunday. Al Moutahed managed to secure only one-point victory 91-90. However their fans expected easier game. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Champville won third quarter 18-17. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Strangely Champville outrebounded Al Moutahed 40-27 including 27 on the defensive glass. American guard Dewarick Spencer (192-82, college: Arkansas St., agency: Higher Vision Sports) stepped up and scored 25 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners and his fellow American import forward Cleveland Melvin (203-91, college: De Paul) chipped in 28 points and 7 rebounds. At the losing side American power forward Darian Townes (208-84) responded with a double-double by scoring 27 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Al Moutahed moved-up to fourth place. Champville at the other side dropped to the seventh position with nine games lost. They share it with Sagesse. Al Moutahed are looking forward to face Louaize (#5) in Zouk in the next round. Champville will play at home against Sagesse and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Beirut: Homenetmen (#1) and Sagesse (#7). Sagesse was defeated at home 96-108 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. American-Iraqi point guard Kevin Galloway (200-88, college: Texas Southern) nailed 24 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists for the winning side and Dewayne Jackson accounted for 29 points and 8 rebounds. Homenetmen's coach Joe Nebhan allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American guard Terrell Stoglin (185-91, college: Maryland) came up with 30 points and 7 assists for Sagesse in the defeat. Homenetmen (12-1) have an impressive series of five victories in a row.

Another exciting game was again a derby between two local teams from Zouk: Louaize (#4) and Tadamon (#6).

Tadamon's coach Paul Coughter rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Despite that victory Louaize went down to fifth position due to points difference.
