Congrats to our foreign based players in Cyprus! Tonight they won the university championship for RAUF DENKTAS UNIVERSITY (RDU).
RDU started the game slowly in the first quarter and was down early in the first quarter by ten. With a very composed mindsets, our foreign base led by Bestman, Baker and EP dug in and chipped at their opponent’s lead.
The second half was all RDU affairs as they took the lead and never looked back. Great defense from them held their opponents from the paint.
Highlight for the night was the off the backboard alley-oop from Bestman to Baker which sent the numerous Liberian students in attendance into a frenzy.
It was a total celebration on the bench in the final 60 seconds as the clock ticked down.
There were tears of joy at the buzzer as some fans rushed the floor.
Emmanuel Paye won the MVP Award and was overwhelmed as he cried tears of joy.
We at Liberiabasketball.net will love to say CONGRATULATIONS to our boys in Cyprus for flying the flag and putting Liberia on the world stage.
Great history 🇱🇷🙏💪🏀
