Lebanese Cedars basketball team has one more game to get the FIBA Asia Cup home!

Wael Arakji was able to guarantee Lebanon’s win with a buzzer-beater, 11.8 seconds before the end of the game, and secure their 85-86 win against Jordan.

The eleventh-hour shot left everyone overwhelmed and is being rewarded with an appreciable reception from the Lebanese people and basketball fans.

The phenomenal Wael Arakji continues to prevail, be it in the retaliation he had to a Lebanese politician‘s comment a couple of days ago, or his astounding performance during the games.

He shared an emotional image-instants after securing their triumph, captioning it, “LEBANON! This is for you” and a heart.

The Cedars never fail to be a beacon of hope for the Lebanese people who are gathering in coffee shops, where electricity is available, to support and backup their country’s team by simply relishing in every slam dunk!
