International forward Gerard Hadidian (201-95, college: Lake Land CC) chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds. Naturalized Egyptian power forward Ahmad Ismail (205-76) produced 29 points and 8 rebounds for lost side. Defending champion moved-up to second place, which they share with Al Riyadi and Beirut Club.

Leader Champville delivered the thirteenth victory on Thursday night. This time they beat 7th ranked Atlas F. (4-12) 80-68 in Zahle. It was a great evening for Fadi El-Khatib who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 31 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists.

The game in Tripoli supposed to be also worth to mention about. 6th ranked Hoops Club (6-10) played at the court of seventh ranked Al Moutahed (5-11). Al Moutahed smashed Hoops Club 80-53. It was an exceptional evening for Hassan Dandach who led the winners and scored 17 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists.
