Townes
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in Pepsi LBL.

The most important game in the last round took place in Dik El Mehdi between third ranked Byblos (12-5) and sixth ranked Champville (8-9) on Thursday night. Byblos were crushed by Champville on the road 83-104. The game without a history. Champville led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Champville outrebounded Byblos 46-34 including a 39-23 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Darian Townes (208-84) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 26 points and 12 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). The other American import Markeith Cummings (198-88, college: Kennesaw St.) contributed with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Champville's coach Ghassan Sarkis felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The former international Jasmon Youngblood (195-84, college: Kent St.) replied with 28 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for Byblos. Champville have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain sixth position with 8-9 record. Byblos lost third consecutive game. They keep the third place with five games lost. Champville are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Hoops Club (#10) in Beirut in the next round. Byblos will play at home against Louaize (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game for Al Riyadi (13-3) which hosted in Beirut 4th ranked Al Moutahed (9-7). Second ranked Al Riyadi managed to get a 9-point victory 86-77. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Moutahed. 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 19 points and 5 rebounds (on 9-of-10 shooting from the field) and Mohamad Haidar who added 19 points and 5 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side American forward Cleveland Melvin (203-91, college: De Paul) responded with 24 points and 6 rebounds. Al Riyadi have an impressive nine-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains second position with 13-3 record having just two points less than leader Homenetmen. Al Moutahed at the other side keeps the fourth place with seven games lost. Al Riyadi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Beirut to the arena Homenetmen.
Pepsi LBL top team - Homenetmen (15-1) managed to deliver another win on Wednesday. This time they beat ninth ranked Hoops Club (3-14) in Beirut 90-76. The winners were led by Dewayne Jackson who scored that evening 33 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Even a double-double of 19 points, 8 rebounds and 12 assists by Ali Mezher did not help to save the game for Hoops Club. Homenetmen have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 15-1 record. Hoops Club lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the bottom place with 14 games lost. Homenetmen's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Beirut Al Riyadi.

In the last two games of round 16 Sagesse beat Tadamon on the road 90-77. Louaize won against Mayrouba on its own court 91-81.
The most impressive performance of 16th round was 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists by Michael Efevberha of Sagesse.

Tadamon - Sagesse 77-90

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams when eighth ranked Sagesse (5-11) beat 7th ranked Tadamon (5-11) in Zouk 90-77 on Sunday. The game was mostly controlled by Sagesse. Tadamon managed to win third quarter 24-22. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Tadamon 44-33 including a 35-12 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a great shooting night for Sagesse especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.4 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. The winners were led by Nigerian-American guard Michael Efevberha (193-84, college: CS Northridge) who had that evening a triple-double by scoring 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists and Nigerian center Kenny Adeleke (205-83, college: Hartford, agency: SDJ Sports) supported him with 20 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Even a double-double of 23 points and 12 rebounds by American forward Maurice Kemp (203-91, college: E.Carolina, agency: Duran International) did not help to save the game for Tadamon. Australian-South Sudanese forward Deng Deng (203-92, college: Baylor) added 23 points and 8 rebounds for lost side. Four Tadamon players scored in double figures. Sagesse moved-up to seventh place, which they share with defeated Tadamon. Tadamon lost sixth consecutive game. Sagesse will meet at home higher ranked Al Moutahed (#4) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Tadamon will play against Mayrouba and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
