It’s a big surprise. It also took an extension to decide between the two teams. The South African club defied predictions by eliminating FUS Rabat from Morocco and won the second qualifying ticket.

Samkelo Cele pushed his teammates all the way. A buzzer-beater to signal the time for overtime then two successful free throws to secure the advantage at the end of the match. He is the best scorer of the match with 30 matches. But if the Tigers managed 53 rebounds during this match (as did FUS Rabat), let us point out that the 25 are in NKosinathi Sibanyoni’s counter. A record in this competition.

In a very close match during the first period, the two teams played a quarter that looked like a final. Normal, no one wants to leave Kigali at this time. Only FUS Rabat came up against a Cape Town Tigers who were difficult to tame. The South African team which remained behind at the end of the first quarter (16-17) reversed the trend before the break (47-44). A gap that they will maintain until but was already untenable on the floor of BK Arena.

They will progress further in the second period where they completely bring down the Moroccan club (63-59). Had it not been for this winning shot from Yacine Baeri one minute from the end. FUS Rabat would have struggled to get back into this match (73-80) until taking the lead 6 seconds from the end (83-80). Samkelo Cele will calm the enthusiasm of Said El Bouzidi’s men at the buzzer.

Concerning the extension, the “Moroccans” did not learn enough of the lesson of resilience from Cape Town to mismanage these 5 precious minutes. Clumsy, they will not succeed in the last actions. Despite his good performance 15 points and 11 rebounds, Mouhamed Sylla and his teammates will bow to leave the competition. Note that Cape Town Tigers, who stopped twice in the quarter-finals, reached the final four for the first time. It is in this South African club that the Senegalese Abdoulaye Ndoye play and Yakhya Diop will wait to find out his opponent in the semi-final. It will be between AS Douanes and Petro de Luanda who will play this Monday at 6 p.m.
