Tanga. Mussa Chacha scored 27 points as Coast Region beat defending champions Singida 62-56 to qualify for the final of Taifa Cup basketball championship yesterday.

The defeat came as a blow to Singida, who clinched the crown at the expense of Unguja in last year’s championship.
The closely contested encounter started at cracking pace with both teams pressing upfront relentlessly in search of points in the thrilling semi-final at the Mkwakwani Stadium. After a tight battle in the opening minutes of the first quarter, Coast Region, a team comprising young but talented players, took the quarter 17-15.
The second quarter was even more competitive and exciting as Singida, looking a more aggressive side, briefly put their opponents at bay. The quarter ended in a 18-18 draw.
Coast Region regained their rhythm in the third quarter, displaying impressive basketball skills to the delight of a partisan crowd at the venue. They won the last two quarters 11-9 and 16-14.
It was the second consecutive victory for the Coast Region team. On their way to the semi finals, they beat Arusha 47-41.
They were expected to face hosts Tanga A in the final last night at the same venue. In Friday’s other semi final, Tanga A, consisting of some players who feature for Dar es Salaam’s big clubs Vijana and ABC, thumped Dar es Salaam 50-40.
Adam Jegame and Juma Kisocky, who play for ABC and Ally “Dibo” Mohammed of Vijana or City Bulls, as they are better known to basketball fans, played an inspirational role for the hosts’ victory.
Jegame scored 19 points and Dibo netted ten to steer the Tanga team to the convincing victory against the pre-tournament favourites (Dar es Salaam). However, the Dar es Salaam boys had something to smile about as their sisters emerged the new Taifa Cup queens after winding up their campaign with a 100 per cent record.
Former champions Mbeya were expected to take on Singida in the third place play-off yesterday evening.
Organised by Tanzania Basketball Federation (TBF), the week-long tournament featured men’s and women’s teams from ten regions.
Teams that battled for top honours in the event came from Tanga, Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Dodoma, Mbeya, Dar es Salaam, Lindi, Singida, Coast, Mara, Mogogoro and Iringa.
TBF used the annual event to select players for the national team ahead of the Zone Five tournament to be held in Dar es Salaam next month.
