Miroslav
Todic
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Al Sadd as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Al Sadd defeated 8th ranked Al Khor in Doha 58-54. Bosnian-Serbian power forward Miroslav Todic (205-85) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 8 rebounds. Serbian swingman Andreja Milutinovic (199-90) contributed with 19 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American point guard Ameer Jackson (193-94, college: Winston Salem) replied with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals for Al Khor. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Al Shamal. Al Khor lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with seven games lost.
Another exciting game for Al Wakrah (5-3) which played in Doha against one of their biggest challengers Al Arabi (4-4). Fifth ranked Al Wakrah upset home team edging them after exciting game by two points 72-70. Worth to mention a great performance of American point guard DaQuan Brooks (177-90, college: W.Connecticut) who helped to win the game recording 18 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists and Joshua Caldwell who added 19 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. The former international swingman Khalid Abdi (198-87) responded with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 14 rebounds and 8 assists. Al Wakrah moved-up to fourth place. Defending champion Al Arabi dropped to the fifth position with four games lost. They share it with Al Gharafa.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Doha: Al Gharafa (#6) and Al Ahli (#7). Al Gharafa (4-4) won against visiting Al Ahli (2-6) 83-73. The winners were led by Franklin Session who had that evening a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!), 14 rebounds and 7 assists.

Al Ahli lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with six games lost.
Bottom-ranked Al Rayyan is still unable to win any game. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their eighth consecutive match to second ranked Al Shamal (7-1) 91-79. The best player for the winners was Mohamed Harath who had a double-double by scoring 24 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists. Al Shamal have an impressive five-game winning streak.
