Robinson
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The biggest surprise of round 10 was guest Al-Hala's (4-5) easy road victory over Sitra (#8) 92-59 on Wednesday evening. They outrebounded Sitra 53-26 including a 18-3 advantage in offensive rebounds. Al-Hala looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. Thailand power forward Jalen Robinson (206-93, college: Dalton St.) fired a double-double by scoring 24 points, 22 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 blocks for the winners. Hussain Salman chipped in 17 points and 8 assists. Iraqi Ali Abdulla produced a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds for lost side. 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-Hala moved-up to sixth place. Sitra at the other side dropped to the ninth position with six games lost. They share it with Isa Town. Al-Hala are looking forward to face Bahrain Youth (#11) in Manama in the next round where they are favorite. Sitra will play on the road against Al-Bahrain in Manama and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Samaheej (0-9) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 123-73 loss to fourth ranked Al-Riffa (7-2) in Riffa. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international guard Mohamed Kawaid (-89) who helped to win the game recording 21 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Abdulrahman Ghali contributed with 16 points and 13 rebounds for the winners. Hussain Busafwan replied with a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 10 rebounds and 7 assists for Samaheej. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Al-Riffa have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 7-2 record. Samaheej at the other side still closes the standings with nine games lost. Al-Riffa will play against higher ranked Al-Ahli (#3) in Manama in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Samaheej's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Manama to the arena Al-Najma.
A very close game took place in Issa Town between Isa Town and Al-Nweidrat. Tenth ranked Isa Town (3-6) got a very close home victory over 12th ranked Al-Nweidrat (1-9). Isa Town managed to escape with a 3-point win 87-84 on Wednesday evening. Ahmed Salman scored 40 points (!!!), 8 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the charge for the winners. At the losing side Curtis Washington responded with a double-double by scoring 31 points and 19 rebounds. Al-Nweidrat's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Isa Town moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Sitra. Al-Nweidrat lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the twelfth position with nine games lost. Isa Town will meet higher ranked Al-Ittihad (#5) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Al-Nweidrat will have a break next round.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Manama: Al-Najma (#6) and Al-Bahrain (#9). Al-Bahrain was defeated at home 90-103 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Al-Bahrain. Kevin Rogers notched a double-double by scoring 26 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the effort. Despite that victory Al-Najma went down to seventh position due to points difference, which they share with defeated Al-Bahrain. Al-Najma's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Manama Samaheej.

In the last game of round 10 Al-Ittihad lost to undefeated Al-Manama in Manama 68-97.
