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

There was a change at the LBL leadership position after last games. Round 12 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Al Riyadi (9-2). They were defeated by second ranked Champville (9-2) 85-75 on Friday night. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Al Riyadi. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Champville dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Al Riyadi's 28. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Dewayne Jackson (203-90, college: Morgan St., agency: Higher Vision Sports) who helped to win the game recording 31 points and 9 rebounds and the other American import guard Demarius Bolds (193-84, college: Missouri Western) who added 25 points and 5 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was naturalized Egyptian power forward Ahmad Ismail (205-76) with 8 points, 14 rebounds and 5 assists. Champville have an impressive six-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with defeated Al Riyadi.
Important game to mention about took place in Beirut. Sixth ranked Hoops Club (4-6) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 5th ranked Byblos (4-7) 64-62 in the fight for the fifth place. The winners were led by American point guard Willie Warren (193-89, college: Oklahoma) who scored that evening 26 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists and Ibrahima Thomas supported him with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Even a double-double of 11 points and 13 rebounds by American forward Aaron Nelson (205-91, college: S.Indiana) did not help to save the game for Byblos. Hoops Club moved-up to fifth place. Byblos lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the sixth position with seven games lost.
Fourth ranked Beirut Club (6-4) crushed at home 9th ranked Sagesse (1-9) by 23 points 89-66, which is the biggest margin this round on Monday night. The best player for the winners was Ali Haidar who had a double-double by scoring 25 points and 16 rebounds. Beirut Club's coach Patrick Saba felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the other side the best for losing team was Sabah Khoury who recorded 17 points and 7 assists. Beirut Club maintains fourth position with 6-4 record. Sagesse lost eighth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with nine games lost.
