Coincidentally all hosts won their games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Beirut: Al Riyadi (#1) and Homentmen (#2). Al Riyadi (7-1) won against visiting Homentmen (6-2) 90-77. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Al Riyadi outrebounded Homentmen 52-33 including a 34-23 advantage in defensive rebounds. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Al Riyadi made 8 blocks. Nigerian power forward Christopher Obekpa (208-93, college: UNLV) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 13 rebounds for the winners and the former international guard Amir Saoud (186-91) chipped in 22 points. The best for the losing side was U.S. Virgin Islands-Puerto Rican point guard Walter Hodge (183-86, college: Florida) with 27 points and 7 assists (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). Al Riyadi maintains first place with 7-1 record. Defending champion Homentmen keeps the second position with two games lost. They share it with Champville.
The game in Beirut was also worth to mention about. 6th ranked Al Moutahed (3-5) played at the court of seventh ranked Hoops Club (3-5). Hoops Club managed to secure a 7-point victory 92-85.
