Riyadi Breeze Past The Egyptian National Team in their Opening Game - Feb 19, 2017

After a slow start to the game, Riyadi trailed for the majority of the first quarter but a late surge from Ismael and co allowed Riyadi to get back and tie the game at 19 after the first 10 minutes. In the second quarter, the Egyptian national team pounded the Lebanese basket down low as their frontcourt scored bucket after bucket. Yet Alade Aminu (210-F/C-87, college: Georgia Tech, agency: Three Eye Sports) and Amir Saoud kept their team in contention with great hustle and resilience. The half finished with Riyadi leading by just one, 37-36. The introduction of Ken Brown (180-PG-89, college: Philander Smith, agency: Octagon Europe) was very helpful for Riyadi as the offense was flowing freely with either Wael or Amir at the SG position. In the third quarter, Riyadi tried to play a faster offense to try and surpass the Egyptian defense before they get positioned. This Egyptian defense was hard to overcome with players standing at 2.27m and 2.18m under the basket. Speed and outside shots from Ismael, Jean, and Branko were the best solutions to break the Egyptian wall. Aminu was exceptional on both ends of the court as he limited second chance points for the opponent and scored his shots down low to give Riyadi a 66-50 3rd quater lead. It was same old same old in the fourth quarter as Riyadi took control of the game. Amir showed off his skills with Ken Brown doing whatever he likes on the court. The Lebanese champions won the game 85-69.
