The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Doha: Al Shamal (#2) and Al Gharafa (#6).

It was a great evening for American guard Aaron Mitchell (188-89, college: Longwood) who led his team to a victory scoring 18 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Algerian forward Mohamed Harath (198-90) helped adding 14 points and 11 rebounds.
