LAST WK: 2

Anytime you’re undefeated 4 games into a season you must be doing something right. Grant it, they didn’t have the most difficult opponent week 4, but a win is a win. Huge first half lead got erased and rather than winning by 20 plus they only won by 8. That point differential might play it’s role in seeding come playoff time.

I heard Muj was booking his trip to Cancun during the blowout. They have 4 guys averaging more than 11 points per game and they are in the top half in points allowed. Very complete team in Tripoli.

Yes, I get it they were without Pat. But isn’t that the moment everyone on this team had been waiting for? To get a moment to shine and get some extra shots? Despite the L, seeing what their other guys are capable of is a bright spot.

Nice to see them keep up with the young pups. Held Palermo to 29.9% from the field while they only shot 30% I don’t expect Afay and Mustafa to go 1-17 combined ever again.

This team has yet to fully click and they are 3-1. Whoever is bringing up the ball on this team must be salivating at all of their offensive weapons around the perimeter.

Hello there Nick Marquez. Blew a huge second half lead, cant do that against most teams in this league. Tehran is an aggressive defensive team. Can Mingo and the boys improve to 4-1?

Their last game was a bit too close for comfort, but despite the fact that they were short 3 key players, they came away with the win. Anas Zubi with a game high 26 and Billal flirted with a triple double. Hope they have a full squad if they want to have a chance in defeating Mombasa.

Another week = another week of new guys coming onto Mombasa. Zahir Daftani with 25 to go alongside Raza’s 16, 9 and 6. They’ve played well, the past two weeks. Let’s see how they prevail against their next few opponents.

Lost a tough one, but time to pad their stats against Suba.

Very close to being a 4-0 team. Shouldn’t have a problem this week. But those next two games, YIKES.

Going up against a juggernaut is never fun and neither is losing to one. Should be a close on against Riyadh.

It was only a matter of time until they got their first W. Deadly backcourt duo, not one any teams want to face.

The game was theirs to lose. Rameez’s absence was felt as they could have used another big down low. This team is still shooting way too many 3 pointers. Tough task ahead with Tripoli.

They haven’t been blown out since week 1 which is a good sign. Problem is they have one ball dominant player that defenses single in on leaving them with not much else.

Wow, they woke up in the second half. If that effort was there for the full 40 minutes, we would have had ourselves a major upset. Backend of the schedule ain’t looking pretty.

They’re trying really really hard.
