Richards
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

There was a change at the Premier League leadership position after last games. Round 4 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Al-Nweidrat (2-1). They were edged by third ranked Al-Hala (2-1) 80-77 on Thursday night. It was a key game for the second position in League. Al-Hala dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Al-Nweidrat's 38. Worth to mention a great performance of British power forward Ryan Richards (212-91, agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 26 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists and Nasser Almosawi who added 21 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Al-Hala's coach Zeljko Zecevic used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side American-Guamanian forward Curtis Washington (208-91, college: Georgia St., agency: Haylett Sports) responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 20 rebounds. Al-Hala moved-up to second place in League.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Samaheej as it allowed them to take a leadership position in League. Samaheej edged bottom-ranked Isa Town in Manama 73-70. The winners were led by American-Bahamas forward Mark StFort (200-88, college: Warner) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 36 points (!!!), 26 rebounds and 6 blocks and Hussain Busafwan supported him with 6 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Samaheej's coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even 28 points and 7 rebounds (made all of his seven free throws) by Tunisian Ahmed Salman did not help to save the game for Isa Town. As mentioned above they took over a top position. Isa Town at the other side still closes the standings with three games lost.
Quite upsetting was Al-Muharraq's home defeat in a game versus Al-Manama 84-75. It was a key game for the top position in League. Wayne Chism fired a double-double by scoring 28 points and 13 rebounds for the winners. Chester Giles produced a double-double by scoring 21 points and 18 rebounds for lost side. Defending champion (3-1) keeps a position of League leader. Loser Al-Muharraq keeps the third place with two games lost. Al-Manama's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Manama Al-Najma.

In the last two games of round 4
In League Al-Najma was destroyed by Al-Ahli on the opponent's court 111-81. Al-Riffa outscored Al-Ittihad in a home game 80-50.

Al-Riffa - Al-Ittihad 80-50

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both fourth ranked Al-Riffa and 6th ranked Al-Ittihad had identical 1-2 record. This time Al-Riffa used a home court advantage and smashed the opponent from Manama 80-50 on Tuesday night.

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-Riffa maintains fourth position in League with 2-2 record. Loser Al-Ittihad keeps the sixth place with three games lost. Al-Riffa will meet at home higher ranked Al-Muharraq (#3) in the next round and it may be the game of the week.
