Kevin Rogers
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of round 8 in the Premier League took place in Muharraq. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of 6th ranked Al-Hala (3-4) to eighth ranked Al-Najma (3-4) 81-80 in the game for the sixth place. Al-Najma looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. American Kevin Rogers (206-86, college: Baylor) saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 31 points and 12 rebounds. International Mohamed Buallay (-95) contributed with 9 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the winners. Thailand power forward Jalen Robinson (206-93, college: Dalton St.) replied with a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 17 rebounds and 4 assists for Al-Hala. Al-Hala's coach Zeljko Zecevic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Al-Najma moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Al-Hala and Sitra. Al-Najma will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Al-Hala will play at home against Al-Ahli (#3) and is hoping to win this game.
Premier League top team - Al-Muharraq (8-0) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed seventh ranked Sitra (3-4) in Al Muharraq 115-76. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sitra. Worth to mention a quality performance of Ahmed Aldurazi who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 4 assists and Sean Williams who added 18 points, 12 rebounds and 8 blocks during the contest. The former international guard Hussain Taqi (173-78) responded with 21 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Undefeated Al-Muharraq have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 8-0 record. Sitra at the other side dropped to the sixth place with four games lost. They share the position with Al-Hala and Al-Najma. Al-Muharraq will play against Al-Nweidrat (#12) in Nuwaidrat in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Sitra will play at home against Isa Town (#11) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 8: Al-Ittihad beat Al-Nweidrat on the road 73-62. Al-Ahli won against Isa Town on its own court 88-72. Al-Bahrain unfortunately lost to Al-Riffa in a road game 79-96.



Al-Muharraq - Sitra 115-76

Premier League top team - Al-Muharraq (8-0) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed seventh ranked Sitra (3-4) in Al Muharraq 115-76. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sitra. They outrebounded Sitra 43-29 including 31 on the defensive glass. Al-Muharraq players were unselfish on offense dishing 32 assists comparing to just 16 passes made by Sitra's players. They brought some defensive toughness making 9 blocks. Worth to mention a quality performance of Ahmed Aldurazi who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 4 assists and American forward Sean Williams (208-86, college: Boston Coll.) who added 18 points, 12 rebounds and 8 blocks during the contest. Four Al-Muharraq players scored in double figures. The former international guard Hussain Taqi (173-78) responded with 21 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists and Iraqi Ali Abdulla scored 18 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Al-Muharraq have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 8-0 record. Sitra at the other side dropped to the sixth place with four games lost. They share the position with Al-Hala and Al-Najma. Al-Muharraq will play against Al-Nweidrat (#12) in Nuwaidrat in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Sitra will play at home against Isa Town (#11) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

No shocking result in a game when fifth ranked Al-Ittihad (4-3) beat 10th ranked Al-Nweidrat (1-7) in Nuwaidrat 73-62.

Al-Ahli - Isa Town 88-72

Very expected game when 10th ranked Isa Town (1-6) lost to fourth ranked Al-Ahli (6-1) in Manama 72-88. Al-Ahli dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Isa Town's 32. Al-Ahli forced 20 Isa Town turnovers and outrebounded them 42-29 including 30 on the defensive glass. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists.

Al-Riffa - Al-Bahrain 96-79

Very predictable result when fourth ranked Al-Riffa (6-1) won against at home 9th ranked Al-Bahrain (1-5) 96-79. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international guard Mohamed Kawaid (-89) who helped to win the game recording 21 points and 4 assists and American power forward Joseph Jones (206-86, college: Texas A&M) who added 15 points and 11 rebounds during the contest. Al-Riffa's coach Audrius Prakuraitis used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Lester Ferguson (208-88, college: Robert Morris) responded with a double-double by scoring 28 points and 14 rebounds and Fadhel Abbas scored 14 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists.

Al-Bahrain lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the tenth position with five games lost. Al-Riffa will play against league's second-placed Al-Manama in Manama in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Al-Bahrain's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Manama Samaheej.
