TEHRAN – Al Riyadi basketball team of Lebanon won the inaugural edition of the WASL-West Asia following a 114-100 conquest of Iran’s Gorgan in Game 2 of the Final at the Nouhad Nawfal Sports Complex in Zouk Mikael.
Duop Reath led the way with 29 points and 6 rebounds, together with an assist, 2 steals, and a block as he proved why he’s tagged as the club’s ‘missing piece.’
Gorgan, on the other hand, was led by the triple-double outing of Perry Petty with 29 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists in the crushing loss.
Behnam Yakhchali had 19 points and 9 rebounds. Antanas Udras made 17 points and 7 boards, while Sajjad Pazrofteh added 11 markers as the quartet carried the fight on a night Mohammad Jamshidi got held to only 6 points.
Now, Al Riyadi and Gorgan, together with third-place Beirut Club, will all represent the West Asia League in the highly-awaited WASL Final 8 in June.
