There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in SBL. The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with defeat of the leader and derby games.

The most exciting game of round 19 in the SBL took place in Riyadh. This derby game ended with only two-point defeat on the road of 3rd placed Al Fateh (16-3) to third ranked Al Nasr (16-3) 65-63 in the game for the first place. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Al Nasr keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Al Ittihad and Al Fateh. Al Nasr is looking forward to face Al Nahda (#11) in Al Khobar in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Al Fateh will play at home against Al Ittihad (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Jeddah. Second ranked Al Ittihad faced 4th placed Uhud. Host Al Ittihad (16-3) smashed guests from Medina (14-5) 88-68. Al Ittihad have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Al Nasr and Al Fateh. Uhud at the other side keeps the fourth place with five games lost. Al Ittihad will play against league's leader Al Fateh in Al Hasa in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Uhud will play on the road against Al Ahli Jeddah and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Medina was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Al Ahli Jeddah (12-7) played at the court of sixth ranked Al Ansar (12-7). Al Ansar managed to secure a 4-point victory 70-66 on Monday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Ahli Jeddah. The victory was the fifth consecutive win for Al Ansar. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with defeated Al Ahli Jeddah. Al Ansar will meet bottom-ranked Al Noor (#12) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Al Ahli Jeddah will play against Uhud (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Twelfth-ranked Al Noor (1-18) made lots of trouble for eighth ranked Al Wehda (7-12) in Mecca. Al Wehda managed to secure only two-point victory 74-72. However their fans expected much easier game. Al Wehda maintains eighth place with 7-12 record. Al Noor lost their sixteenth game in a row. Newly promoted team stay dead last with 18 lost games. Al Wehda's next round opponent will be Al Salam (#9) in Al-Awamiyah. Al Noor will play at home against Al Ansar and hope to win that game.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Al Khobar. Local Al Nahda (2-17) was outscored by seventh ranked Al Hilal (9-10) 102-57 on Monday night. Al Hilal maintains seventh place with 9-10 record. Al Nahda lost their eleventh game in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the eleventh position with 17 games lost. Al Hilal will face Al Arabi (#10) in Al-Qassim in the next round. Al Nahda will play on the road against the league's second-placed Al Nasr having rather not much hope for a victory.

In the last game of round 19 Al Salam was defeated by Al Arabi in Al-Qassim 81-72.

Al Arabi - Al Salam 81-72

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams in Al-Qassim where 9th ranked Al Salam (5-14) was defeated by tenth ranked Al Arabi (4-15) 81-72 on Monday. Al Arabi maintains tenth place with 4-15 record. Loser Al Salam keeps the ninth position with 14 games lost. Al Arabi will face higher ranked Al Hilal (#7) in Riyadh in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
