Round 7 in Pepsi LBL means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Beirut where host Homenetmen (6-1) crushed league's leader Champville (6-1) 110-77 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Champville. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Homenetmen dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to Champville's 42. Homenetmen had a 33-20 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists comparing to just 15 passes made by Champville's players. Tunisian Makram Ben-Romdhane (204-89) fired 30 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Naturalized Egyptian power forward Ahmad Ismail (205-76) chipped in 15 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists. The former international forward Fadi El-Khatib (198-79) produced 18 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for lost side. Homenetmen have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Al Riyadi and Champville. Champville will play next round against Beirut Club trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Homenetmen will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Al Moutahed in Tripoli.
Important game to mention about took place in Tripoli. Second ranked Al Riyadi (6-1) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 5th ranked Al Moutahed (4-3) 86-84 on Saturday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international point guard Wael Arakji (194-94) who helped to win the game recording 21 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Jean Abdel-Nour contributed with 17 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Al Riyadi's coach Ahmad Farran allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. American guard Demarius Bolds (193-84, college: Missouri Western) answered with 22 points and 8 rebounds for Al Moutahed. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Homenetmen and Champville. Al Moutahed at the other side keeps the fifth place with three games lost. They share the position with Beirut Club. Al Riyadi will play against Byblos (#8) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Al Moutahed will play against the league's leader Homenetmen and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Tadamon (0-7) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 100-62 loss to sixth ranked Beirut Club (4-3) in Beirut on Saturday evening. It was a great evening for Chris Crawford who led his team to a victory with a triple-double by scoring 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Beirut Club's coach felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Patrick Rembert responded with 23 points (made all of his seven free throws). Beirut Club have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Moutahed. Loser Tadamon still closes the standings with seven games lost. Beirut Club will meet higher ranked Champville (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Tadamon will play against Sagesse (#4) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

In the last two games of round 7 CS Antonins were defeated by Sagesse in Beirut 99-85. Louaize beat Byblos at home 87-75.
