Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Beirut Club (4-2) at the home court on Friday night. Hosts were defeated by ninth ranked Hoops Club (1-5) 77-68. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Beirut Club. Hoops Club made 20-of-23 free shots (87.0 percent) during the game. They also forced 21 Beirut Club turnovers. 24 personal fouls committed by Beirut Club helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American point guard Willie Warren (193-89, college: Oklahoma) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 assists (was perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line !!!) for the winners and Senegalese forward Ibrahima Thomas (213-87, college: Cincinnati) chipped in 18 points and 8 rebounds. The former international forward Ali Haidar (201-90, college: Michigan Tech) responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists. Beirut Club's coach Patrick Saba rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Newly promoted Hoops Club maintains ninth place with 1-5 record. Beirut Club at the other side dropped to the third position with two games lost. They share it with Champville.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Champville (4-2) against fourth ranked Homentmen (4-1) on Sunday night. Visiting Champville was defeated by Homentmen in a tough game in Beirut 68-76. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Champville. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Nigerian-American guard Michael Efevberha (193-84, college: CS Northridge, agency: Octagon Europe) nailed 27 points and 7 rebounds for the winning side and Walter Hodge accounted for 18 points and 6 rebounds. Homentmen's coach Joe Nebhan allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American forward Dewayne Jackson (203-90, college: Morgan St., agency: Higher Vision Sports) came up with 19 points and 5 steals for Champville in the defeat. Homentmen have a solid series of three victories in a row. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Al Riyadi. Champville at the other side dropped to the third place with two games lost. They share the position with Beirut Club. Homentmen's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Beirut to the arena Sagesse.
The game in Zahle was also quite interesting. Third ranked Al Riyadi (4-1) played at the court of 6th ranked Atlas F. (2-3). Al Riyadi managed to secure a 7-point victory 69-62 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Atlas F.. The best player for the winners was Jean Abdel-Nour who had a double-double by scoring 13 points and 18 rebounds. Ghassan Nehme produced 14 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for the hosts. Atlas F.'s coach Elie Nasr tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Al Riyadi have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Homentmen. Newly promoted Atlas F. keeps the sixth place with three games lost. Al Riyadi will meet at home Al Moutahed (#5) in the next round. Atlas F. will play against Byblos and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Fifth ranked Al Moutahed (3-2) beat at home 7th ranked Sagesse (1-4) by 8 points 71-63, which is the biggest margin this round. Marvelle Harris orchestrated the victory by scoring 29 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Al Moutahed maintains fifth place with 3-2 record. Sagesse lost fourth consecutive game.
