Yemen - Egypt 45-93
As it was expected, Egypt grabbed third consecutive win at the 9th Arab Basketball Cup in Morocco. After wins against the hosts and Kuwait, the Egyptians trashed Yemen with huge 93-45. The victory was expected before the game as Yemen already faced with two failures so far. It means that now they have poor 0-3 in Group B, while Egypt is on top of it with a nice chance to end this stage perfect.
First quarter, which belonged to Egypt 25-7, talks everything for itself. The following 10 minutes also belonged to the Egyptians, who now drained even more - 28 points. It means that the score at the half time was impressive 53-22. Third quarter belonged to Yemen 13-12, but during the last 10 minutes they were destroyed once again.
In the last game of the first stage Egypt will meet Saudi Arabia, who has 2-1 record. In case of win, there is a chance also that Saudi Arabia can jump on top of this pool. That depends of Morocco and their results. In the next match Morocco will plat against winless Yemen and after that vs Kuwait. The game against Morocco is the last chance for Yemen for a joy on this Cup. Another winless team is Lebanon, but in Group A.
