Curtis
Washington
There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Second Stage in Premier League. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The biggest surprise of round 2 in Premier League took place in Nuwaidrat where host Al-Nweidrat (2-0) beat Sitra (1-1) 86-79 on Wednesday evening. Al-Nweidrat made 18-of-22 free shots (81.8 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was American-Guamanian forward Curtis Washington (208-91, college: Georgia St., agency: Haylett Sports) who had a double-double by scoring 21 points and 15 rebounds. Hassan Abbas chipped in 25 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Senegalese center Mansour Kasse (208-92) produced a double-double by scoring 25 points and 18 rebounds for the guests. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Al-Najma (1-1) recorded a loss in Al Muharraq. Visitors were defeated by Al-Muharraq (1-1) 94-85. The former international center Chester Giles (211-85, college: Oregon St.) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 14 rebounds and 7 blocks. Bader Abdulla contributed with 24 points and 7 assists for the winners. American Kevin Rogers (206-86, college: Baylor) replied with 33 points (!!!) and 7 rebounds for Al-Najma. Al-Muharraq will play against Al-Ittihad (#5) in Manama in the next round. Al-Najma will play at home against Al-Riffa and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Manama between Al-Ittihad and Al-Manama. Al-Ittihad (1-1) got a very close home victory over Al-Manama (1-1). Al-Ittihad managed to escape with a 2-point win 88-86 on Sunday evening. Ali Ghadeer scored 29 points and 5 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. Wayne Chism responded with a double-double by scoring 27 points, 18 rebounds and 4 assists. Al-Ittihad will meet at home Al-Muharraq (#3) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Al-Manama will play against Al-Ahli and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Riffa was also worth to mention about. Al-Ahli (2-0) played at the court of Al-Riffa (0-2). Al-Ahli managed to secure a 9-point victory 93-84. Marcel Jones notched a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!) and 20 rebounds to lead the effort. Al-Riffa's coach Audrius Prakuraitis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Al-Ahli's next round opponent will be Al-Manama in Manama and it will be for sure the game of the week. Al-Riffa will play on the road against Al-Najma (#4) in Manama and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 2 In League winless Isa Town was defeated by Al-Hala in Muharraq 91-75.
