The biggest surprise of round 1 in Pepsi LBL took place in Beirut where host Homenetmen (18-1) crushed Sagesse (6-13) 86-65 on Tuesday evening. The game was mostly controlled by Homenetmen. Sagesse managed to win fourth quarter 24-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Homenetmen forced 23 Sagesse turnovers. Strangely Sagesse outrebounded Homenetmen 50-36 including 20 on the offensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. American-Iraqi point guard Kevin Galloway (200-88, college: Texas Southern) fired a triple-double by scoring 13 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists for the winners. American forward Dewayne Jackson (203-90, college: Morgan St., agency: Higher Vision Sports) chipped in 22 points and 5 assists. Homenetmen's coach Joe Nebhan felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Calvin Godfrey (206-90, college: Memphis) produced a double-double by scoring 19 points and 14 rebounds for lost side. Sagesse will play next round against strong Byblos trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Homenetmen will try to continue on its current victory against Louaize in Zouk.

Edgar Sosa contributed with 16 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners. American forward Maurice Kemp (203-91, college: E.Carolina, agency: Duran International) answered with 20 points for Tadamon. Tadamon's coach Paul Coughter gave up on the game allowing to play twelve players seeing no chance for a win. Tadamon will play next round against strong Al Moutahed trying to get back on the winning streak. Al Riyadi will try to continue on its current victory against Champville at Dik El Mehdi.
An exciting game was played in Byblos. Byblos faced Louaize. Host Byblos (14-5) defeated guests from Zouk (10-9) 88-73. Clay Tucker stepped up and scored 25 points and 5 rebounds for the winners.

Byblos will meet Sagesse (#4) in the next round. Louaize will play against Homenetmen and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An exciting game was played in Tripoli. Al Moutahed faced Champville. Host Al Moutahed (11-8) defeated guests from Dik El Mehdi (8-11) 92-85. The game was dominated by American players. Cleveland Melvin nailed a double-double by scoring 25 points and 10 rebounds for the winning side. Champville's coach Ghassan Sarkis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help.
