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.

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.
