Mame Souleye
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was the first loss of Al Sadd (5-1) in Doha on Saturday night. Hosts were edged by fifth ranked Al Wakrah (4-2) 74-71. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Sadd. They outrebounded Al Sadd 52-40 including 43 on the defensive glass. The former international center Mame Souleye (206-87) had a double-double by scoring 17 points and 17 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and American power forward Joshua Caldwell (203-91, college: William Penn, agency: SDJ Sports) chipped in 29 points during the contest. The best for the losing side was Bosnian-Serbian power forward Miroslav Todic (205-85) with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists. Al Wakrah moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Al Arabi. Al Sadd at the other side still keeps top position with one game lost. They share it with Al Shamal. Al Wakrah is looking forward to face Al Gharafa (#7) in Doha in the next round.

Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Doha: Al Shamal (#2) and Al Ahli (#6). Al Shamal (5-1) won against visiting Al Ahli (2-4) 84-74. Algerian forward Mohamed Harath (198-90) notched a double-double by scoring 30 points and 17 rebounds to lead the effort and Mikhail Berishvili supported him with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists.

They used an opportunity after Al Sadd lost their game and moved up joining them at the top position. Al Ahli at the other side keeps the sixth place with four games lost.

Another interesting game was again a derby between two local teams from Doha: Al Arabi (#5) and Al Gharafa (#6).
