Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of round 8 in the LBL took place in Zahle. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of 7th ranked Atlas F. (2-5) to eighth ranked Hoops Club (2-5) 66-65 in the game for the seventh place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Atlas F.. Hoops Club forced 21 Atlas F. turnovers. American point guard Willie Warren (193-89, college: Oklahoma) saved the victory by scoring 28 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). Senegalese forward Ibrahima Thomas (213-87, college: Cincinnati) contributed with 14 points and 16 rebounds for the winners. American guard Ghassan Nehme (190, college: Fair Dickinson) replied with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for Atlas F.Hoops Club moved-up to seventh place, which they share with defeated Atlas F. Hoops Club is looking forward to face higher ranked Al Moutahed (#6) in Tripoli in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Atlas F. will play on the road against Champville in Dik El Mehdi and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Tripoli. Sixth ranked Byblos (3-4) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 5th ranked Al Moutahed (3-4) 86-84 in the fight for the fifth place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Al Moutahed. American players dominated the game. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Aaron Nelson (205-91, college: S.Indiana) who helped to win the game recording 29 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists and Malcolm Riley who added 18 points and 4 assists during the contest. point guard Marvelle Harris (196-93, college: Fresno St., agency: Slash Sports) responded with 23 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals (was perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line !!!). Byblos moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Moutahed. Byblos will play against bottom-ranked Sagesse (#9) in Beirut in the next round. Al Moutahed will play on the road against Hoops Club (#7) in Beirut and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Beirut: Homentmen (#2) and Beirut Club (#4). Homentmen (6-1) smashed visiting Beirut Club (4-4) by 32 points 100-68. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Beirut Club. The winners were led by Walter Hodge who had that evening a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 assists. Even a double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds by Ali Haidar did not help to save the game for Beirut Club. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Al Riyadi. Beirut Club at the other side keeps the fourth place with four games lost. Homentmen's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Beirut to the arena Al Riyadi.
