Wayne Chism
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Al-Muharraq (9-1) in Al Muharraq on Tuesday night. Hosts were defeated by Al-Manama (9-0) 89-81. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Al-Muharraq. It was a key game for the top position in the league. It was a great shooting night for Al-Manama especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.4 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. International Wayne Chism (206-87, college: Tennessee) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 29 points and 11 rebounds. The former international guard Hussain Altawash (174-86) contributed with 14 points and 13 assists for the winners. Ahmed Aldurazi answered with 30 points and 6 assists (was perfect 11-for-11 from the free throw line !!!) for Al-Muharraq. Al-Muharraq's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Undefeated Al-Manama have an impressive series of eight victories in a row. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader. Al-Muharraq at the other side dropped to the second place with one game lost. Al-Manama are looking forward to face Al-Hala (#7) in Muharraq in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Al-Muharraq will play on the road against Al-Bahrain (#9) in Manama and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Al-Ahli (7-2) against fourth ranked Al-Riffa (8-2) on Monday night. Visiting Al-Ahli was defeated by Al-Riffa in Riffa 89-77. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Al-Ahli. It was a great evening for the former international guard Mohamed Kawaid (-89) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists. Yunes Kawaid helped adding 28 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. American-New Zealand forward Marcel Jones (203-85, college: Oregon St.) responded with a double-double by scoring 25 points, 19 rebounds and 4 assists. Al-Ahli's coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. The victory was the sixth consecutive win for Al-Riffa. They moved-up to third place. Al-Ahli at the other side dropped to the fourth position with two games lost. Al-Riffa will play against Al-Ittihad (#5) in Manama in the next round. Al-Ahli will play on the road against Sitra and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Samaheej is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their tenth consecutive match to eighth ranked Al-Najma (4-5) 98-51 on Monday evening. It was an exceptional evening for Mohamed Buallay who led the winners with a triple-double by scoring 18 points, 15 rebounds, 11 assists and 4 steals. Al-Najma's coach felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Mujtaba Ismaeel came up with 8 points and 11 rebounds for Samaheej in the defeat. Al-Najma moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Al-Hala. Samaheej lost their eighth game in a row. They still close the standings with ten games lost. Al-Najma will meet at home Al-Nweidrat (#12) in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Samaheej's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Manama to the arena Bahrain Youth.

In the last two games of round 11 Sitra beat Al-Bahrain on the road 86-77. Al-Ittihad destroyed Isa Town on its own court 87-60.



Al-Bahrain - Sitra 77-86

There was a small surprise when tenth ranked Sitra (4-6) beat 8th ranked Al-Bahrain (3-6) in Manama 86-77 on Sunday. Strangely Al-Bahrain outrebounded Sitra 42-29 including 16 on the offensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. It was an exceptional evening for the former international guard Hussain Taqi (173-78) who led the winners and scored 22 points and 7 assists. Iraqi Ali Abdulla accounted for 11 points and 12 rebounds for the winning side. American forward Lester Ferguson (208-88, college: Robert Morris) came up with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 14 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) and Fadhel Abbas added 16 points and 9 rebounds respectively for Al-Bahrain in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Sitra moved-up to eighth place. Loser Al-Bahrain dropped to the ninth position with six games lost. Sitra will meet at home higher ranked Al-Ahli (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Al-Bahrain will play against the league's second-placed Al-Muharraq (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.

Al-Ittihad - Isa Town 87-60

Very expected game when 9th ranked Isa Town (3-7) was smashed by fifth ranked Al-Ittihad (5-4) in Manama 87-60 on Sunday. Al-Ittihad dominated down low during the game scoring 48 of its points in the paint compared to Isa Town's 28. They outrebounded Isa Town 51-24 including a 37-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was an exceptional evening for Bosnian-Serbian center Mile Ilic (215-84) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 38 points (!!!) and 27 rebounds. Ali Helal accounted for 11 points and 6 rebounds for the winning side. Five Al-Ittihad players scored in double figures. Tunisian Ahmed Salman came up with 16 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists and Mansoor Jaber added 20 points respectively for Isa Town in the defeat. Al-Ittihad maintains fifth place with 5-4 record. Loser Isa Town dropped to the tenth position with seven games lost. Al-Ittihad will meet at home higher ranked Al-Riffa (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Al-Najma dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Samaheej's 20. They outrebounded Samaheej 39-27 including 29 on the defensive glass. It was an exceptional evening for international Mohamed Buallay (-95) who led the winners with a triple-double by scoring 18 points, 15 rebounds, 11 assists and 4 steals. American Kevin Rogers (206-86, college: Baylor) accounted for 20 points (perfect from the field making all ten shots !!!) for the winning side. Four Al-Najma players scored in double figures. Al-Najma's coach felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Mujtaba Ismaeel came up with 8 points and 11 rebounds and Ahmed-Mohd Jafar added 15 points respectively for Samaheej in the defeat. Al-Najma moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Al-Hala.
