There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in D1. What a coincidence that all visitors won their games.

The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tripoli: Al Ittihad (#1) and Al Wahda (#6). Al Wahda was crushed at home by 68 points 32-100 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Wahda. Al Ittihad maintains first place with 12-1 record. Al Wahda at the other side keeps the sixth position with eight games lost. Al Ittihad's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tripoli Al Yarmook.
Another exciting game was again a derby between two teams from Benghazi: Ahly Benghazi (#2) and Al Hilal (#4). Al Hilal was crushed at home by 21 points 38-59 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. Ahly Benghazi have a solid series of four victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Nasr. Al Hilal at the other side keeps the fourth place with six games lost. Ahly Benghazi will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Al Hilal will play on the road against Morog (#3) in Almarj and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked El Nasr Zliten is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 11th consecutive match to third ranked Al Yarmook (8-4) 65-51 on Thursday evening.
