Tunisia - Egypt 70-50

Tunisia outplayed Egypt by 20 points in the Big Final winning the trophy at the 9th Arab Basketball Cup in Morocco. Both teams entered to this game with perfect record, but the Tunisian demonstrated much better performance yesterday. Both squads opened the game nervously and the score was tied after ten minutes, 15-15. Tunisia improved after that scoring 20 more until the half time for 5-point lead, 35-30. Nothing has changed after the breather as Tunisia still dominated. They stopped Egypt on just 10 points in third period and on the other side netted 17. It was plus 12 before the last quarter, which also belonged to Tunisia.
The new champion had perfect 5-0 record in Prleminary Round. Of course, they were No.1 in Group A, where also were placed Syria, Algeria, UAE, Lebanon and Libya. Later, in the Quarterfinals Tunisia devastated Kuwait 99-57. In the Semis the Tunisians met the host of this event, Morocco celebrating tiny overtime win. Egypt, who won the Silver, outplayed Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Yemen at the Preliminary Stage in Group B. In the QFinals, Egypt cruised past Libya 84-54. In the Semis the Egyptians smashed Syria 99-78.


Morocco - Syria 85-81

The host of 9th Arab Basketball Cup was better than Syria wining the Bronze on this event. Second quarter was the crucial one for the Moroccans and their victory as they finished it with 32-23. Before that, in the first frame Syria created 15-16 lead. The Syrians took control on Morocco after the breather closing the gap to 2 points. At that time it seemed that Morocco is slowing down and also that Syria is closer to win, despite minus 2. However, the Moroccans had big support from their fans and were strong enough to resist in the last period. They even won it with 2-pts for the final 85-81.
Morocco finished the first stage with 3-1 record in Group B. Later in the Quarterfinals Morocco eliminated Algeria 69-61. In Semifinals it was a real thriller. Morocco played great, but loosed it in overtime against Tunisia. Yesterday, the Tunisians won the trophy on this event. On the other side, Syria had 3-2 in Preliminary Group A. In QFinals Syria beat Saudi Arabia 83-73. They failed in the Semis against Egypt 78-99.
