It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Al Shamal. They outrebounded Al Shamal 55-40 including 42 on the defensive glass. American power forward Joshua Caldwell (203-91, college: William Penn, agency: SDJ Sports) fired 17 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. The former international center Mame Souleye (206-87) chipped in 14 points and 15 rebounds. The former international power forward Emir Mujkic (210-97) produced 11 points and 9 rebounds for lost side. Al Wakrah moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Al Arabi.
