The Lebanese were again defeated by New Zealand

Black day for Lebanese basketball. Like their youth counterparts, who were knocked out of the Under-19 World Cup by Spain (102-20), the Lebanese lost to the strongest of them on Wednesday morning in Sydney, where the 30th edition of the FIBA ​​Asia Cup for Women is taking place.

Led by Trinity Baptiste, the top scorer of her team with 11 points, as in the previous match (lost to South Korea, 76-54), Georges Dabbak Geagea’s players struggled with the law of the Kiwis who were remarkably able to count on 20 desalination units of Tobaya and 19 of Charles Leisure Walker.

Quickly in front of the mark, the New Zealanders rallied to the score from the second quarter and counted up to 34 points in advance. A gap remained until the end of the meeting, which allowed them to achieve a valuable victory in the pocket that validated their ticket to the quarter-finals, where they will face the Philippines.

Oceania occupied second place in Group A, behind China, which in turn fell to the Lebanese in the opening, with a score of 89-44.

The Lebanese will still have one last match on Friday against Taiwan to determine which of the two teams will finish seventh in the tournament. Just to go on vacation on a slightly more positive note.
