Basketball: A’Ibom defeat Anambra in dramatic comeback win


Team Akwa Ibom men’s basketball team put on an inspirational performance in the last quarter of their match against Team Anambra to come back from behind to win 42-40 in the last quarter.

Anambra were up by seven points with just two minutes left in the final quarter, with score at 40-33, but Akwa Ibom took advantage of their opponents’ complacency late on and punished them with the narrow win.
