Day 4 Round Up - Dec 4, 2012

Petro de Luanda and Libolo remain unbeaten in the tournament, while the Egyptian Al Ahly met his first victory. On match of the day, Primeiro Agosto beat ES Sahel of Tunisia and is closer to confirm second place in Group B.

By winning ES Sahel by 79-63, Primeiro Agosto finally gave an air of grace. Joaquim Gomes (200-C/F-80, college: Valparaiso) with 24 points and 10 rebounds, showed his quality, having taken from Armando Costa with 13 points and 4 assists, an excellent help from the guard spot. The Tunisian team, defending champion, is now far from repeating the feat.

Petro had a hard day, beating Kano Pillars by 80-77. Paulo Barros (195-F-89), with 17 points, was the top scorer of the Angolans, while the Nigerian international Stanley Gumut (197-F-86) was the man of the match with 21 points.

Note also the first victory for Al Ahly, who won the 76-63.Islam Aly, with 16 points, was the best scorer of the match versus Mazembe.

Day 3 Round Up - Dec 3, 2012

Petro de Luanda is now alone on top of Group B by beating ESS by 70-69, while Libolo kept the lead in Group A after beating Manga by 73-65.

Emotion was high in the big game of the third day of competition in the African Champions Cup. The ESS dominated the first half but with a fabulous third period, Petro confirmed their good moment and won. Carlos Morais (193-G-85), with 26 points, and Leonel Paulo (197-F-89), with 12 points and 10 rebounds, were highlighted. On the Tunisian side, Andry Smith with 17 points and 5 assists, was the most valuable player.

Libolo continued a victorious run, after defeating the Gabonese Manga. The Angolan team was so much better than Manga in the earlier periods, that it allowed to rotate the team and give rest to some of its most influential men. Tommie Eddie (201-F/C-82, college: Mississippi) scored 16 points in just 18 minutes and Mutu Fonseca stood out with 9 points and 11 rebounds. Ombango Darlyse with 17 points, was the Manga top scorer.

Also noteworthy was the victory of Primeiro Agosto, by 88-63, against Mazembe. Kikas with 17 points, was the player who contributed the most for this victory.

In other matches, especial note the victory of ABC over Mongomo, which puts the Cote d'Ivoire team in the fight for second place in Group A. The home team has been struggling, with news of the hospitalization of their best player, Spaniard Miguel Montaana, due to a virus that has made him lost six kilograms since the competition began.

Day 2 Round Up - Dec 3, 2012

Three Angolan wins marked the second day of competition in the African Champions Cup.

Primeiro Agosto reached their first victory against Kano Pillars of Nigeria, a team that created a lot of difficulties during the first two periods, but which eventually give way to a more powerful side by 78-70. Reggie Moore (203-PF-81, college: ORU) with 21 points and 4 rebounds, was the man of the match.

Libolo was the team that faced a more complicated opponent, Ettehad of Egypt. In a very balanced game, the Angolan team marked the distance in the second period. With a final victory by 77-74, Libolo can be thankful of the 33 points and 7 rebounds made by Tommie Eddie, a real monster in Malabo Pavilion.

At the end of the day, Petro eventually had the easiest mission, as they defeated Al Ahly by 80-58.

The surprise of the day turned out to be a defeat for the home team, Mongomo, by 58-65, with Manga of Gabon.
