Sammy Monroe
Round 8 most important game was a victory of Al Gharafa over one of their biggest challengers Al Rayyan 88-75 on Sunday night. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Rayyan. The game was mostly controlled by Al Gharafa. Al Rayyan managed to win third quarter 22-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. American forward Sammy Monroe (198-85, college: Newberry) orchestrated the victory by scoring 28 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. International swingman Abdulrahman Saad (185-96) contributed with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. American center Marcus Bell (206-90, college: CS Stanislaus) replied with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 rebounds for Al Rayyan. Al Gharafa have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 6-1 record behind leader El Jaysh. Defending champion Al Rayyan keeps the third place with two games lost. Al Gharafa will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Al Rayyan's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Doha to the arena El Jaysh.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Doha: El Jaysh (#1) and Al Shamal (#7). Al Shamal was defeated at home 88-97 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Vernon Macklin (208-86, college: Florida) who helped to win the game recording 35 points (!!!), 9 rebounds and 4 blocks and Dominic James who added 31 points and 6 assists during the contest. Mohamed Haras responded with a double-double by scoring 31 points and 11 rebounds. Undefeated El Jaysh (7-0) have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They maintain first position with a perfect record of 7 victories in a row. Al Shamal at the other side dropped to the eighth place with five games lost. El Jaysh's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Doha Al Rayyan.
Another interesting game was again a derby between two local teams from Doha: Al Ahli (#6) and Qatar Sports Club (#4). Al Ahli (3-3) won against visiting Qatar Sports Club (3-3) 81-77. The winners were led by Nemanja Miljkovic who scored that evening 26 points and 6 assists (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field). Even a double-double of 30 points and 12 rebounds by Quinton Doggett did not help to save the game for Qatar Sports Club. Al Ahli moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Qatar Club and Al Arabi. Al Ahli will meet bottom-ranked Al Khor (#10) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Qatar Sports Club's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Doha Al Arabi.
Another interesting game was again a derby match of two teams from Doha: Al Sadd (#8) and Al Arabi (#4). Al Arabi was defeated at home 61-71 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. The best player for the winners was Moustafa Essam Fouda who scored 23 points and 5 rebounds. Al Sadd (2-4) moved-up to seventh place. Al Arabi at the other side keeps the fourth position with three games lost. Al Sadd's next round opponent will be Al Wakrah (#9) on the road.
