The lasts matches of the second tour are decisive for the teams of Ouagadougou. We need 2 teams for the semi finals; so these matches will determinate which teams will be qualified for the finals.

- Kadiogo Bulls # AS-Sonabel
During the first tour, the electricians win against the bulls by 39-24. The bulls lead the competition and they have to win if they want to stay leader. The electricians want to play a semi final. The bulls lead the match from the beginning to the end. The play was hard. Ibrahim OUEDRAOGO of the electrician is the man to stop. He was everywhere and he hurt himself. He came back in the third quarter. Cedric CONOMBO the best shooter of the Bulls score one shoot after another. At the end of the third quarter the score was 42-32 for the bulls. Mamadou SAWADOGO of the bulls was fouled out after two technical fouls. It was the chance of the electricians. They lost it!during the last seconds, Regis ZOUNGRANA and the center BAYALA tried to send their team at the overtime; they scored their shoots at three points. It was late!
Score: 50-47 for the Bulls
Best scorer: Cdric CONOMBO (Kadiogo Bulls), Pel KONE (Kadiogo Bulls), Ibrahim OUEDRAOGO (AS-Sonabel) with 11 points everyone

- AS-Sonabhy # RCK
Kader TAPSOBA of the falcons was the man of the match. This young player of the team score 17 points and give a lesson to the centers of the petroliers. He can shoot at three points and played rebound very well this day. This center did the show time to the public and dunked three time in the face of the petroliers. It was his day.

- RCK # Kadiogo Bulls
For the second time, the bulls won against the Falcons this season. The last season champion have many difficulties to this season. Ben Sada DABIRE and his team mates, this season couldnt find the way to play a collective play. Paton Ismael KONE, Telesphore SOME, Losseni DRABO and the others forgot that the one man show cant win a championship two times consecutively. Its hard to win by three points shoots. Coach Roger COULIBALY doesnt know that he won last year because he had the best players and that the other teams didnt work during the preseason. Today, its not the same thing. Many teams worked hard to rise up their level. Kadiogo Bulls is one of these teams. This team is here today to win the competition and as we saw it this year, the Bulls can do it.
For this match, Mamadou SAWADOGO didnt play. He took two Technical fouls the last match and was suspended for one match. Everyone thought that the Falcons will win easily. During the first and the second quarter, coach DABIRE tried his system at all the position (from the point guard to the center). The score was tied at the halftime.
In the third quarter, the falcons took advance of 4 points. During the fourth quarter, the bulls saw that they can win this match. They defended hard. Pele KONE was at the beginning of the system; when the falcons played a one man show, the bulls played collectively; the falcons lost many balls... and the match.
the Kadiogo Bulls is the first team of Ouagadougou which is qualified for the semifinals
Score: 41-44 for the Bulls
Best scorer: Ismal Paton KONE (RCK) with 15 points

- AS-Sonabel # AS-Sonabhy
This time again, the electricians were not able to win against the petroliers; they lead the match and at the halftime the score was 23-35.
In the third quarter, Ibrahim OUEDRAOGO, BAYALA and the point guard Norbert PARKOUDA were too tired! Coach COULDIATY didnt want to take substitutions. The petroliers speeded up the game; at the end of the quarter the electricians leaded with 4 points.
