American-New Zealand forward Marcel Jones (203-85, college: Oregon St.) produced a double-double by scoring 23 points and 16 rebounds for lost side. Al-Ahli's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Undefeated Al-Manama have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 11-0 record. Al-Ahli at the other side keeps the fourth position with three games lost.
Bottom-ranked Samaheej (0-11) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 86-74 loss to eleventh ranked Al-Nweidrat (3-9) in Nuwaidrat. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Guamanian forward Curtis Washington (208-91, college: Georgia St., agency: Haylett Sports) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 32 points, 18 rebounds and 5 assists. Ebrahim Albasri contributed with 16 points for the winners. Al-Nweidrat's coach used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American-Bahamas forward Mark St.Fort (200-88, college: Warner) answered with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 15 rebounds for Samaheej. Al-Nweidrat maintains eleventh place with 3-9 record.
