MOROCCO : Day 16 Results

The biggest win was for IRT who travelled to Casablanca and came away with a hugely important 72-74 victory. The game was finely poised going into the last ten minutes but the visitors produced a great final period to take the win, taking advantage of some generous Motopenza defence with senegalese power forward Papis Diouf claiming 21 points while Marouane Kechrid scored 15 hitting three from outside in money time. It was a measured and controlled performance by IRT who looked after the ball and held their nerve to finish on Amine Barazi's buzzer shot. First win for IRT's new coach Nizar Mesbahi who said that self-confidence and team spirit are slowly getting back to his squad.

The biggest shock perhaps of the week was FUS winning MAS by 94-86. It was a truly inspirational win for the team that has struggled all season and can breathe oxygen again with this victory. Bangoura Mourlaye (23 points, 14 rebounds) was the man of the game as FUS took advantage of slack MAS defence.

It was a similar story in Casablanca where the home team TSC won WAC who still did not recover from his last week devastating Cup loss versus RCA. WAC's coach Driss Ghissassi was sacked in the beginning of the week and Raduan Haddany was appointed head coach. Inconsistent TSC team picked up an unexpected 65-55 win.

The other results of the day saw ASS edge past MET 58-72 and KAC crushing CMC 81-53.
