RWANDA : APR edge CSK in hoops league

APR MAINTAINED their lead at the top of the table after narrowly beating Cercle Sportif de Kigali (CSK) 65-64 in a national basketball league game played on Saturday at Kicyiru SOS courts.
Sunny Niyomugabo scored 18 points and Jean Baptiste Kabayiza added 14 for the military side.
Patrick Buzangu scored the game high 25 points with his young brother Mike Buzangu adding 20, but their effort was not enough to prevent CSK from suffering a second defeat of the season.
CSK’s other loss came at the hands of the two-time reigning champions Espoir, who beat them 56-47 on March 8.
“I congratulate my players for this victory. We want to keep the momentum throughout the second round,” APR’s Kenyan-born technician Cliff Owour said. Owuor has won the league title five times with APR since his arrival at the club in 2005.
The defeat leaves CSK in third place behind APR and Espoir, who remain second following their 85-66 win over University of Rwanda School of social sciences and arts.
