Wayne Arnold
The sellout crowd at El Al Ahly Cairo Arena in Cairo erupted in cheers as the FIBA Africa Champions Cup 2016 hosts on Friday became the first Egyptian team to win the competition in two decades.

Paced by Markeith Cummings (198-SF-88, college: Kennesaw St.) and Wayne Arnold (193-F/G-84, college: Tennessee St.) - the only El Al Ahly Cairo players to score in double figures -, the historic Egyptian club beat Clube Recreativo e Desportivo do Libolo 68-66, becoming the first local club basketball club to win the trophy since Al Gezira won it in 1996.

This is El Al Ahly Cairo first-ever FIBA Africa Champions Cup title.

Although the Egyptians led most of the contest, Libolo never backed down, managing a two-point lead midway through the final quarter.
Cummings and Arnold combined for 39 of El Al Ahly Cairo's 68 points, 38-year-old Tarek El-Sayed (211-C-78) added seven points and a game-high 11 rebounds in the winning cause, while Olimpio Cipriano, Andre Harris, Valdelicio Joaquim (208-C-90, college: Hawaii, agency: BeoBasket) and Eduardo Mingas combined for 49 Libolo points.
In the process, Arnold, who was named the tournament MVP, was joined on the All-Star team by El-Sayed, Libolo's duo of Jekel Foster and Valdelicio Joaquim and Abdelhakim Zouita of AS Sale.

The Egyptians closed out the tournament with seven wins as many games, while Libolo claimed the Silver Medal and returns home with a 5-2 record.

In the 3rd-Place Game, AS Sale of Morocco led by as many 21 points before sealing an 88-76 win over Nigeria champions Kano Pillars.

Brandon Freeman (191-G-83, college: UALR, agency: Promotex), who had very little playing time due to a reportedly health issue, in the Thursday's Semi-Finals, ignited AS Sale with a game-best 30 points as they became the second Moroccan team - after AS FAR - to win the bronze medal in one year.

Earlier in the day, Tunisia champions Club Africain Tunis beat Groupe Sportif Petroliers Alger of Algeria 66-59 in the 5th-Place Game, while eight-time FIBA ACC winners Primeiro D'Agosto closed their worst-ever campaign in the tournament history losing to 72-55 BEAC Basket of Cameroon in the battle for the 7th-Place.

Final standings of the 2016 FIBA Africa Champions Cup:
1. El Al Ahly Cairo (Egypt)
2. Clube Recreativo e Desportivo do Libolo (Angola)
3. AS Sale (Morocco)
4. Kano Pillars (Nigeria)
5. Club Africain Tunis (Tunisia)
6. Groupe Sportif Petroliers Alger (Algeria)
7. BEAC Basket (Cameroon)
8. Primeiro D'Agosto (Angola)
9. City Oilers Kampala (Uganda)
10. Nzui-Manto (Cameroon)

The MaJic Touch: Daryl Dorsey continues to shine - 14 days ago
GHASSANBASKET | JANUARY 29, 2018 Few athletes are truly unique, changing the way their sport is played with their singular skills. Daryl "Magic" Dorsey is one of them. Just how good a basketball player is Dorsey? So good, perhaps, that future generations of hoop fans may see that he was the modern day point guard 10 years ago -- just to watch MaJic play in person instead of watching him only on highlight reels is a site to see. If we used NBA comparisons he is what Jason Williams was t...   [read more]
