Lebanese shatter Muharraq hopes - Oct 31, 2017

Sam Young
MUHARRAQ crashed out of title contention last night from the 2017 Arab Clubs Basketball Championship following a disappointing 70-94 quarter-final defeat at the hands of Lebanese side Homenetmen. The Bahrain representatives were outclassed in a generally one-sided encounter that earned the victors a ticket to the tournament's final four. The Lebanese used their size advantage to stifle Muharraq on the defensive end and were on fire from beyond the arc offensively, earning them leads of up to 36 points. Former NBA rotation player Sam Young (198-F/G-85, college: Pittsburgh), who is a prolific scorer, didn't even have to take charge in the contest as Homenetmen enjoyed an all-around team effort. Muharraq struggled from the opening tip and were immediately down 2-12 following a three-pointer by Homenetmen's Maike Cocijane. The Bahrainis had multiple shot-clock violations in the first quarter and faced a 2-17 hole. Versatile big man Mohammed Juma'a came off the bench and inserted some life into Muharraq, although it still was not enough. He helped them get to with 12-39 at the end of the first quarter. In the second, it became clear that the Lebanese were just too tall and in form and Muharraq would need a miraculous comeback in the contest. It was an unlikely scenario, though, as Homenetmen continued to lead big at the half, 53-29. In the third, Young buried a triple to make it 61-31 and give his side their first lead by 30. Mark Abiderss then scored his own three-pointer and teammate Ismail Abd Mouniim followed it up with a short-range jumper to give Homenetmen their biggest lead, 74-38, before closing out the third up 76-40. Five straight points from Sayed Kadhem (181-G-97) and Juma'a cut the deficit to 51-79 and it gave Muharraq something to smile about early on in the final canto.
