Dar Es Salam,24/01/2013
The National basketball team of Somalia has on Wednesday night knocked down Brundi at the ongoing Africa’s Zone V basketball tournament after crashing their rivals by 98-80 points in what seems to be symbolizing the return of Somalia’s former glory in sports especially in basketball games.
The Somali Men's team has been dominating the whole match from the very beginning until the referee has whistled his whistle marking the end of Wednesday’s hotly-contested match.
Wednesday’s night match was more interested than Tuesday’s match against Kenya which ended in 81-79 in favour of Somali team, as hundreds of Somalis who left from Kenya and Uganda reached Dar Es Salaam earlier on Wednesday in a bid to support for the national basketball team.
Both the president of Somali Sports Press Association and the deputy president of Somali basketball Federation namely Abdi-Aziz Godah Barre who talked to the media after the match ended, has fully lauded for the huge victory the Somali Basketball team has won.
