RWANDA : Ciza stars as UR-CASS beat Rusizi in hoops league

Sunday
UR-CASS 65-31 Rusizi
Saturday
CSK 40-83 Patriots
APR 50-67 IPRC- Kigali
ARNAUD Tresor Ciza scored 19 points to inspire University of Rwanda’s College of Arts and Social Sciences (UR- CASS) beat Rusiz BBC 65-31 in the national basketball league on Sunday in Huye.
The Burundi-born forward Ciza and power-forward Edmond Joie Igabe (11 points) scored 30 points between them while team captain Aubin Bizimana, who did not have a good game, scored 7 points. Emmanuel Nishimwe was Rusizi’s top scorer with 11 points.
Charles Mushumba’s UR-CASS, who lost the league’s opening game 89-65 to defending champions Espoir last weekend, dominated the game and claimed the first quarter 11-8 and the second 14-4 to go into half-time with a 25-12 lead.
Rusizi, returning to the league after a year’s absence, lost the last two quarters 16-12 and 24-7 to get off to a false start to the 2015/2016 season.
“I feel honoured to guide my team this win, I am looking forward to more such performances ahead. Consistency is key, we need to keep the momentum and try to win every game,” Ciza told Times Sport.
On Saturday, last season’s first runners-up, Patriots defeated Rugunga-based Cercle Sportif de Kigali (CSK) 83-40 at NPC gymnasium while Albert Buhake’s IPRC-Kigali humbled former champions APR 67-50 at the same venue.
