SECOND WEST ASIAN WIN FOR JORDAN
Jun 01, 2016
Hosts Jordan took a giant step towards becoming West Asian Basketball Champions after winning their second game of the tournament last night.
Following a comfortable opening day victory over Syria, Jordan held their nerve to beat Iraq 84-80 at Shabab Al Fuhais where the tournament is being hosted.
They face favourites Iran on Thursday, who beat Syria 93-63 last night. Unfortunately for Jordan though they will be waiting on the fitness of star player Mohammed Maher to see if he can play in the showdown.
Wednesday’s matches: Lebanon V Syria – 6pm; Iran V Iraq – 8pm.
