WABA League – Feisty Riyadi show champs Mahram the door


Lebanese league champions Al Riyadi Beirut came up with a feisty performance to oust twice defending champions Mahram of Iran out of the WABA League with an 83-73 win in Game 2 of the semifinal series at Manara on Tuesday.

Riyadi, who had won 94-90 the Game 1 of the best-of-three semifinal series at Tehran last week, now await the winners of the semifinal series between Syria’s Al Jala’a and Zob Ahan of Iran.

That series is tied 1-1, with Jala’a having won 89-79 at Aleppo earlier this month and Zob Ahan bouncing back to level the series with a 93-76 win on Monday.
