Binary Financial and Dolphins continued to keep pace at the top of the standings in Ball Above All’s Elite League with their third victory in as many weeks.
In the first game of the night at GEMS Dubai American Academy Barsha, Binary Financial topped Spartans 81-68 as Ammar Farouq put on a show with 32 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three steals.
Farouq sliced through Spartans’ defence at will to build up a sizeable lead. Spartans went on a run in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to single digits, but couldn’t complete the comeback as they suffered their second loss of the season.
Dolphins then took care of business against Dubai Flight with a 67-58 victory, pulling away late after a closely-contested game.With four players scoring in double figures – including Augustine Bakali who had 25 points, six rebounds, four assists and five steals – Dolphins’ firepower proved to be too much.
After struggling in their first two games, Dubai Flight showed fight and improvement in the loss.
The final game of the night saw Vipers edge Dubai Heat 82-78 behind Aristeed Mendy’s monster performance.
Vipers had four players contribute double-digit scoring with Mendy leading the way by dropping 37 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and six steals.
Mendy’s scoring average of 26.0 points trails only Binary Financial’s Bilal Abdullah (26.3) for top scorer on the season.
