Ohud Abdul Mohsen at 49 years old is still leading the team, stealing, passing and hitting the three when needed. Waleed Al-Medani is a great rebounder. He hits the three, and is one of the best shot blockers.
Ayoub Essa is a fast foward who beats the defense at will.
Ahli has veteran Khaled Falatah who is one of the best three-point shooters in the league.
Mohammed Musa is an excelent rebounder, shooter and penertrater. Ayman Bilal, originally from Ansar, has been one of the top guards the last three years.
Wehdahs Saleh Tacroni has been dominating the boards. He is strong and high scorer for years. Now with Rashad Suri helping in the paint and Hessam Badwadi showing defensive wares Wehdah has a team to build on.
Ittihad has Mohammed Hassan, a great shot blocker, rebounder and scorer in the middle. Ayman Al-Medani at foward blocks shots, and hits the three. Jaber Al-Kabri and Yaya Iberheim are top penertrating guards. Methena Hassan is emerging as a good point guard with fast moves to the basket and relays passes, and collects rebounds.
