As for the women, the Hoop made a great step in recuperating the title that they left to the CSSC last year by winning the first leg by 11 points which is a great advantage for the team to be champion this year. The teammates of Corinne Somauroo made a great zone defence to block the attacks of the 2 malagasy players, usually unstoppable, Judith and Gladys and by attacking on fast break, they made a very important win in their title of gaining back their title of champion. The 2nd leg will be on Sunday @ 15hr at the Phoenix gymnasium and this will also be an interesting game between the 2 teams.
