Marlon
Parmer

A day after Al Rayyan's Emir Cup victory, point guard Marlon Parmer (191-G-80, agency: HM Sports Agency, college: Ky Wesleyan) kindly sat down with me for an interview.

Amir: What's up Marlon? Congratulations on your victory yesterday.
Marlon: Thanks Amir. It feels good.

What made you decide to come back to Qatar?
Well, I felt that Rayyan would be a good situation for me and I felt that I could come in and help this team.


I have to ask you then: How would you rate the competition here in Qatar:
Overall, Qatar has a pretty competitive league. I believe that the level is not as good as it could be because of the one-import rule, but I don't believe that I've played in a more athletic league.


You were in Estonia earlier this year. How was your experience there?
Life was great there and the people were very nice. The playing, though, was not where I expected it to be. On the whole, it was a great experience.


So why did you leave?
The team felt that they could save money. It was a business move.


When you left, your former team BC Kalev/Cramo Tallinn were undefeated in the league and in first place. However, since then, they've lost three crucial games and ended up losing the league title to rivals Tartu likool/Rock. What did that tell you?
It makes you understand your worth as a player. You feel bad for the players because they are good people, but I saw it coming because Rock is a great team.

Then you come to a Rayyan team that lost the league title to Al Jaysh Army SC and you were expected to come in to help them win the Heir Apparent and Kings Cups, right away. Did you feel any added pressure?
Sure, of course I felt pressure, even though I have played under similiar circumstances before. There were nights where I couldn't sleep because I was anxious, but with leader like Yaseen Ismail (204-F-80), it makes the adjustment that much easier.


So you play your first game, you foul out and Rayyan loses. What was going through your mind at that moment?
Not only did I lose, I lost to my former team (Qatar Club). I was a bit down, which is normal, but I knew that it was just a matter of time before it clicked. The only problem was that we didn't have much time and I was just hoping that it would be sooner than later.


You got a rematch with Qatar in the finals of the Heir Apparent Cup, but this time you guys got the better of them when it counted most, with you scoring 23 points and playing an great game overall. Tell me about that.
It felt great! My teammates were great. It was a team effort and when it was money time we knew what we had to do.


But come on; don't tell me that this victory wasn't that much sweeter because it was Qatar.

D1 Round 16: #1 Al Gharafa is defeated by Al Sadd - 14 hours ago
The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Al Gharafa (12-2) in Doha on Wednesday night. Hosts were edged by fifth ranked Al Sadd (8-6) 83-82. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Al Gharafa. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Albanian forward Mike Moser (203-90, college: Oregon) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 27 points and 12 rebounds and American Julius Coles (193-89, college: Canisius) who added 18 points, 11 r...   [read more]

Oldham's 37-point game gives him Interperformances Player of the Week award - 1 day ago
23-year old guard Dee Oldham (193-G-94) had a very impressive game in the last round for Al Sadd and receives a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 15. He had the game-high 37 points adding eight rebounds and five assists for Al Sadd in his team's victory, helping them to outclass Al Khor (#7, 3-11) with 30-point margin 95-65. Al Sadd maintains the 5th position in Qatari league. Al Sadd is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower i...   [read more]

Al Shamal tabs Mame Souleye - 2 days ago
Al Shamal Doha (D1) inked 31-year old former Qatari international center Mame Souleye (206-87) from Al Arabi. In 18 D1 games he averaged 12.9ppg, 7.0rpg and 2.1apg last season. He helped them to make it to the Qatari Emir Cup Semifinals. A very good season in his career as he was selected to Asia-Basket.com All-Qatar D1 Honorable Mention and All-Domestic Players Team. The previous (15-16) season Souleye played at Al Wakrah where in 18 D1 games he had 14.1ppg, 10.6rpg, 1.0apg and 1.3bpg. A...   [read more]
