In their 6th and final match of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Cup 2021 Qualifiers, the Cedars fastened their position at the top of Group D, closing their remarkable Qualifiers run with an unblemished winning streak.
During its Window 3 match against India on Monday afternoon, the Lebanese team delivered a spectacular performance despite lacking 4 of its international players.
The match, held in Manama, Bahrain, started off with a back-and-forth between the two teams, but Lebanon was quick to capture a 10-point lead around the middle of the opening half.
Displaying spectacular offense, the Lebanese players repeatedly penetrated their rivals’ tight defense and scored, reaching the half-time break with a 7-point lead, which they had raised to 21 points by the end of the 3rd quarter.
