Manny Adako
The most interesting game of round 9 was a home defeat of 6th ranked Qatar Sports Club (3-4) by fifth ranked Al Arabi (4-3) who outscored them by 20 points 98-78. The game was mostly controlled by Al Arabi. Qatar Sports Club managed to win second period 19-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Qatar Sports Club 54-33 including a 37-22 advantage in defensive rebounds. Al Arabi looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. Nigerian-American power forward Manny Adako (203-87, college: Northeastern, agency: Court Side) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 29 points, 17 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners and American-Ghanian Adamu Saaka (198-88, college: Furman) chipped in 29 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists.
