Manama lift league title - Apr 30, 2018

THE Manama dynasty continues after being crowned champions for the fifth successive season in the Zain Bahrain Basketball League last night. Manama secured their title after thoroughly outplaying bitter rivals Al Ahli 88-78 in game four of their best-of-five championship series. Yesterday's clash was more one-sided than the final score suggests. The 3-1 ending to the series earned Manama their 21st league title overall and it secured the club an unprecedented treble for the 2017/2018 campaign. Manama had also won the Bahrain Super Cup to start the season and then the Khalifa bin Salman Cup earlier this month. Manama players and officials were presented their glittering league trophy and medals by Bahrain Basketball Association (BBA) president Shaikh Isa bin Ali bin Khalifa Al Khalifa during the awards presentation after the contest. Also on hand were Bahrain Olympic Committee general secretary Abdulrahman Askar, Bahrain Handball Association president Ali Isa and BBA secretary general Abdulelah Abdulghaffar. Coached by veteran Bahraini tactician Aqeel Milad , Manama were firing on all cylinders in the game, building leads of more than 20 points in the first half and never looking back. The victors took advantage of their opponents' porous defence and controlled a quick tempo from the jump. Manama had already posted 34 points in the first quarter alone before cooling down a bit in the second, at the end of which they enjoyed a 54-32 lead. After the break, Manama continued to stay in control despite Ahli's best efforts to try and get back into the game, and by the end of the third with Manama enjoying a commanding 76-51 advantage, the title celebrations had already begun. The fourth and final quarter seemed a mere formality as the boys in blue were simply just too good for the evening and their firepower too much for their opponents to overcome. Manama went up by as many as 27 early on in the payoff period but Ahli managed to get the final gap down to just 10 points, with most of their scoring coming in garbage time. Manama enjoyed a balanced attack last night from their star-studded roster. Do-it-all Bahraini forward Mohammed Kuwayed and American professional Wayne Chism (206-PF-87, college: Tennessee) led the way with 15 points apiece. Kuwayed also had eight rebounds and four assists while Chism added 10 rebounds and five assists to the stat sheet. Young big man Mohammed Ameer came off the bench to post 14 markers while also grabbing nine rebounds, and sweet-shooting guard Hassan Nowrooz also had 14 points including three three-pointers. Court general Ahmed Abdulaziz finished the game with 13 points, four rebounds and an impressive 10 assists, for Manama while Maytham Jameel fired in 11 points against his former team in the win. Ahli's Bahraini guard Hussain Shaker and seven-foot, two-inch centre Loren Woods (218-C-78, college: Arizona) combined for 50 points for their team. Woods top scored with 27 including 16 rebounds, while Shaker had 23 including three triples, to go with five assists and three steals. They received little help from elsewhere, however, with Hesham Sarhan (F-92) contributing 14 as Ahli's only other player in double figures.
