The third day of the Sahara Conference of the Basketball Africa League (BAL) 2024 is scheduled for this Tuesday at Dakar Arena. AS Douanes faces the Rwandan Patriotic Army (APR) team (7:00 p.m.), while US Monastir plays for survival against the Nigerians of Rivers Hoopers (4:00 p.m.).

Surprising during the first day of the BAL Sahara Conference, the Rwandan Patriotic Army team beat on the wire, after overtime (86-84), US Monastir, winner of the 2022 edition and finalist one year earlier. But the Rwandans, new to the competition, bowed down against the Nigerians of Rivers Hoopers (82-86).

For its part, AS Douane got off to a bad start to the tournament due to an opening defeat (68-77), inflicted by Rivers Hoopers. Without wasting time, the Gabelous fought back on the second day by defeating US Monastir (89-84). AS Douane must bring out all its artillery this Tuesday to beat the Rwandans.

US Monastir is playing for its survival

US Monastir, winner of the 2022 edition, is in difficulty in this Sahara conference. Considered the favorites, the Tunisians continued with two defeats. The Tunisian team was beaten by the valiant APR team, then tamed by AS Douanes. US Monastir will certainly play for survival against Rivers Hoopers who made a 2/2, against AS Douane (77-68), then in front of APR (86-82).

With a third setback, US Monastir will not play in the play-offs which will be held in Kigali.
