MIXED FORTUNES IN WEST ASIAN BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Jordan’s two leading women’s basketball clubs are enduring mixed fortunes at the West Asian Championships in Jordan.
After losing their first match to Lebanon’s Homentmen, Orthodox Club bounced back to beat Iran’s Abdan, 82-57, in Group B.
But hosts, Fuhais, lost their second match to Lebanon’s Ansar, 64-61, despite launching their Group A campaign with a win over De Lasal from Palestine.
Only the top two from each group will qualify to the semi-finals.
