The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Al Qadsia as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Al Qadsia smashed bottom-ranked Al Sulaibikhat in Kuwait City 77-27. Undefeated Al Qadsia (18-0) have an impressive 17-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Al Sulaibikhat at the other side still closes the standings. Al Sulaibikhat will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest in order to get back on the winning path. Al Qadsia will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked Al Sahel in Abu Halifa.
Important game to mention about took place in Kuwait City. Ninth ranked Al Yarmook (6-15) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging higher ranked Al Arabi (13-8) 75-74 on Wednesday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the home team. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Al Arabi. Al Yarmook moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Al Shabab. Al Arabi at the other side keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. Al Yarmook will play against Al Shabab (#8) in Al Ahmadi in the next round. Al Arabi will play on the road against Al Nasar (#6) in An Nasr and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 28 Kazma beat Al Tadhamon on the road 73-63. Al Jahraa lost to Al Sahel on its own court 62-71.

Al Tadhamon - Kazma 63-73

No shocking result in a game when third ranked Kazma (17-4) beat 10th ranked Al Tadhamon (2-19) in Al Farwaniya 73-63. Kazma maintains third position with 17-4 record behind leader Al Qadsia. Al Tadhamon lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the tenth place with 19 games lost. Kazma will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Al Tadhamon will play on the road against the league's second-placed Al Kuwait (#2) in Kuwait City and hopes to get back on the winning track.
