RWANDA : Basketball review

APR re-established themselves as Rwanda’s basketball powerhouse after a remarkable performance on the local and regional scene.

Having missed out on last year’s play-offs, the indomitable lions roared themselves back in the limelight by lifting this year’s league title. But it was the worst possible way for Cliff Owuor to record his third league title as APR won the title through default points.

On the regional scene, APR maintained their high reputation by retaining the Zone 5 Club Championship which was staged in Ethiopia.

This victory powered the club into the Fiba-Africa Men’s Club Championship, arguably the most competitive and lucrative club competition in African basketball.

This championship was held in Tunisia and APR finished 8th, dropping one slot from their 7th spot finish in 2007.
