Sammy Monroe
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in D1.

The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Doha: Al Gharafa (#2) and Al Rayyan (#4). Al Gharafa (16-1) smashed visiting Al Rayyan (11-6) by 20 points 102-82. The game was mostly controlled by Al Gharafa. Al Rayyan managed to win second period 24-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Al Gharafa shot the lights out from three sinking 12 long-distance shots on high 70.6 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Sammy Monroe (198-85, college: Newberry) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 23 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 steals and Senegalese Hassino Ndoye (-92) who added 24 points during the contest. At the losing side American guard Jamal Shabazz (198-94, college: Samford) responded with 29 points and 5 rebounds. Al Gharafa have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 16-1 record having just one point less than leader El Jaysh. Defending champion Al Rayyan keeps the fourth place with six games lost. Al Gharafa will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Al Rayyan will play at home against Al Wakrah (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game was again a derby between two teams from Doha: Al Arabi (#4) and Al Ahli (#6). Al Arabi (11-5) smashed visiting Al Ahli (5-11) by 26 points 75-49. The winners were led by Nigerian-American power forward Manny Adako (203-87, college: Northeastern, agency: Court Side) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 11 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists and Gueye Momar Talla supported him with 21 points and 6 rebounds. Even 17 points and 5 rebounds by international point guard Abdulrahman Al-Muftah (181-94) did not help to save the game for Al Ahli. Al Arabi have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. Al Ahli at the other side dropped to the seventh position with 11 games lost. Al Arabi's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Doha to the arena El Jaysh.
Another interesting game was again a derby match of two local teams from Doha: El Jaysh (#1) and Al Rayyan (#4). Al Rayyan was smashed at home by 31 points 55-86 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. Dominic James fired 28 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists and 8 steals for the winners. El Jaysh's coach felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Marcus Bell produced a double-double by scoring 18 points and 20 rebounds for lost side. Undefeated El Jaysh (16-0) have an impressive 12-game winning streak. They maintain first position with a perfect record of 16 victories in a row. Defending champion Al Rayyan keeps the fourth place with six 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 Arabi.
Another interesting game was also this time a derby match between teams from Doha: Al Shamal (#6) and Al Sadd (#9). Al Shamal (6-11) won against visiting Al Sadd (4-13) 68-59. It was a very good performance for Reggie Hamilton who helped to win the game recording 28 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Al Shamal maintains sixth position with 6-11 record. Al Sadd at the other side keeps the ninth place with 13 games lost. Al Shamal's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Doha to the arena Qatar Sports Club.

In the last two games of round 28 Qatar Club was destroyed by Al Wakrah on the opponent's court 110-82. Bottom-ranked Al Khor unfortunately lost to Al Shamal in a home game 75-83.

Al Shamal - Al Sadd 68-59
