The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Doha: Al Gharafa (#4) and Al Arabi (#3). Al Gharafa (4-1) smashed visiting Al Arabi (3-2) by 34 points 93-59. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Arabi. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The game was mostly controlled by Al Gharafa. Al Arabi managed to win fourth quarter 19-12. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Al Gharafa dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Al Arabi's 30. American forward Sammy Monroe (198-85, college: Newberry) scored 25 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists to lead the charge for the winners and the other American import swingman Wayne Arnold (193-84, college: Tennessee St.) chipped in 16 points and 10 rebounds during the contest.
