PATRIOTS were on Saturday night crowned champions of the 2017 basketball playoffs after overcoming rivals Rwanda Energy Group (REG) 3-1 in the best-of-five finals series at Amahoro Indoor Stadium. After failed attempts in 2015 and 2016, Patriots bounced back from losing Game 1 (82-75) on July 14 to win the next three Games; 83-77 (July 15), 64-54 (July 28) and 56-52 respectively. In Game 4 on Saturday, Rwanda international Kami Kabange scored a game high 21 points for REG, but it was not enough to save the day for Jean Bahufite 's side. Patriots' youngster, Sedar Sagamba (PG) scored 18 points, while Elie Kaje (G) and team captain Aristide Mugabe (183-PG-88) added 12 and 10 points respectively as Henry Mwinuke's team completed a 3-1 series victory. Last year's regular season league champions, Patriots, started off the game strongly taking the first quarter 16-14, but lost the second quarter 14-7 before recovering in second half to win the third and fourth quarters 15-11 and 18-15 respectively to wrap up a narrow 56-52 win. Former champions Espoir claimed the third place at the expense of IPRC- Kigali.
