Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of round 6 in the LBL took place in Byblos. This derby game ended with only two-point defeat on the road of 6th ranked Atlas F. (2-4) to seventh ranked Byblos (2-4) 81-79 in the game for the sixth place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Atlas F.. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Byblos made 7 blocks. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was forward Aaron Nelson (205-91, college: S.Indiana) who had a double-double by scoring 26 points, 16 rebounds and 5 blocks. Forward Malcolm Riley (196-93, college: Texas Southern) chipped in 22 points and 4 assists.

Byblos moved-up to sixth place, which they share with defeated Atlas F.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Beirut: Homentmen (#2) and Sagesse (#8). Sagesse was defeated at home 66-74 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. It was a good game for U.S. Virgin Islands-Puerto Rican point guard Walter Hodge (183-86, college: Florida) who led his team to a victory with 21 points and 7 assists. Karim Zeinoun contributed with 7 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Canadian power forward Keanau Post (211-92, college: Missouri) replied with 19 points and 6 rebounds for Sagesse. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Homentmen have a solid three-game winning streak.
