Coming into second-half, Didier Bineza 's men returned even more energetic to win the third quarter by 32-18 but struggling UR-Huye's stole a narrow 23-19 win in the last quarter to suffer the 11th defeat out of 17 games played this season. IPRC-South skipper Bienvenue Niyonsaba scored a game high 20 points while Sunny Niyomugabo added 17 points for the winners. UR-Huye captain Aubin Bizimana (18 points) and small forward Jean Baptiste Kabayiza (15 points) combined for a total 33 points. Elsewhere, United Generation Basketball (UGB) club beat Rusizi BBC 75-44 in Rusizi to record their 8th victory, improving their win ratio to 8:9 this season.
