Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Kuwait beat Oman 55-42 on Fri­day, the third straight win in the 8th GCC Wheelchair Bas­ket­ball Cham­pi­onship, held at New York Univer­sity in Abu Dhabi. Kuwait was quick in their of­fense and made most of the field goal shots. The Kuwaiti team was also good in tran­si­tion back to the de­fense and made a good use of the turnovers com­mit­ted by the Oma­nis. Saudi Ara­bia beat the home team, the United Arab Emi­rates (UAE), 45-38. Saudi Ara­bia and Kuwait have six points each. Their clash is to­day and the win­ner will win the cham­pi­onship. Shafi Al-Ha­jri, pres­i­dent of Kuwait Dis­abled Sport Club, com­mended the play­ers for their per­for­mance against Oman. He told KUNA that Saudi Ara­bia’s game would be a tough one, but voiced con­fi­dence in abil­ity of the play­ers to make a good game. — KUNA
