JORDAN'S TITLE HOPES ARE OVER
Jordan's hopes of clinching the West Asian Basketball Championships on home soil have been smashed after losing to Lebanon on Wednesday night.
Lebanon raced into a 27-9 first quarter lead and despite a strong fight back, Jordan eventually lost 71-61 at the Fuhais Club.
Despite one game to go, the win ensures that Lebanon will be crowned champions for the fifth time. Jordan will need to beat Iran on Thursday night to guarantee second.
That match gets underway at 7pm. In other action Wednesday, Iran beat Iraq 92-80, while Syria beat Palestine 86-70.
