BASKETBALL FINALS BEGIN MONDAY
Feb 08, 2015
The Jordan Basketball finals begin Monday night when Orthodoxi meet Ittihad Schools at Prince Hamzeh Hall (6:30pm)
Orthodoxi advanced to the finals by defeating ASU, while Ittihad Schools clinched their spot with victory over Al-Riyadi.
Orthodoxi are going for their first league title since 2011, while Ittihad have been in the past two finals, losing both times to ASU.
The best-of-five series get underway on Monday with Game 2 on February 13, Game 3 on February 16 and, if necessary, Game 4 on February 20 and Game 5 on February 23.
Orthodoxi star Sam Daghlas spoke to www.joc.jo about the upcoming finals and the 35 year-old guard can’t wait for the games to start.
"I remember it was just two months ago, when I was sitting in the Orthodoxi gym and they said to me to come play for us and see if we can make the championship game,” said Daghlas. "To actually be able to do it is very cool.
"We have a great combination, we complement each other so well, and it’s huge the way that we play together. I am very excited and I’ve never lost a finals in Jordan, so it is what’s pushing me to win this one.”
