The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Al Sadd as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Al Sadd edged 6th ranked Al Gharafa in Doha 78-76. Bosnian-Serbian power forward Miroslav Todic (205-85) fired a double-double by scoring 17 points and 14 rebounds for the winners. American point guard Dominic James (180-86, college: Marquette) chipped in 20 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. American guard Franklin Session (187-89, college: CS Los Angeles) produced a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals for lost side. Al Sadd have a solid series of three victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Al Shamal. Al Gharafa at the other side keeps the sixth place with seven games lost. Al Gharafa will play next round against Al Wakrah trying to get back on the winning streak. Al Sadd will try to continue on its current victory against fourth ranked Al Arabi. It will be extra interesting game as Al Arabi is their local rival from Doha.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Doha: Al Arabi (#4) and Al Ahli (#7). Al Arabi (8-5) crushed visiting Al Ahli (4-9) by 19 points 88-69. Worth to mention a great performance of Senegalese center Oumar Seck (208-88) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Khalid Abdi contributed with 20 points and 4 assists for the winners. American Julius Coles (193-89, college: Canisius) answered with 27 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists for Al Ahli.

Al Arabi's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Doha Al Sadd.
The game in Al Khor was also quite interesting. Fifth ranked Al Wakrah (7-5) played at the court of 8th ranked Al Khor (1-11). Al Wakrah managed to secure a 4-point victory 90-86 on Tuesday.
