Basketball regular season league defending champions Patriots continued their hunt for a second title after overcoming one of their closest challengers IPRC-South in a closely-contested game played on Saturday in Huye. Patriots defeated the reigning playoffs winners 75-72 in overtime to remain on top of the league table after 11 games, ahead of debutants Rwanda Energy Group (REG), who overwhelmed 30-Plus 152-34 at Cercle Sportif de Kigali court in Rugunga. Charles Mushumba 's IPRC-South came into the game determined to hand Patriots a second league loss, and took the opening two quarters;13-11 and 22-16 to go into first half break leading 35-27. However, the champions returned from the break a much different side and went on to dominate the third and fourth quarters 19-6 and 20-15 respectively to tie the score 61-61 at the end of normal time. Five minutes of overtime were added and Patriots led by Aristide Mugabe (183-PG-88) and Elie Kaje (G), gave the Kagugu-based side the last laugh winning it 14-11 to wrap up the game 75-72. Mugabe finished with a game high 18 points while Kaje contributed 14 points. Victory means that Patriots have defeated IPRC-South twice this season having won the first round game 84-78.
In other games, title hopefuls REG run riot over lowly 30-Plus defeating them 152-34 while former champions Espoir thrashed CSK 100-33 and United Generation Basketball Club (UGB) stunned APR 95-90. Patriots remain top of the league table with 21 points, two points ahead of second-placed REG, who have however played one game less, while Espoir are third, also at 19 points. 30-Plus and CSK occupy the bottom two places with 11 and 10 points respectively.
