Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Top-ranked Al-Muharraq blasted bottom-ranked Samaheej (0-6) in Manama 100-58 on Wednesday evening keeping the perfect record after 6 rounds. Samaheej is still unable to win any game. Al-Muharraq dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Samaheej's 32. They outrebounded Samaheej 50-37 including a 35-22 advantage in defensive rebounds. Al-Muharraq looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists comparing to just 10 passes made by Samaheej's players. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Al-Muharraq made 15 blocks. Ahmed Aldurazi scored 15 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Mohamed Aldurazi chipped in 16 points and 8 rebounds during the contest. Al-Muharraq's coach Alen Abaz felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
