After an outstanding performance in the last games, the yellows kept their winning streak 4-0, against Tadamon in Zouk! 

After a strong performance from both teams in the first half, Riyadi turned things around and ended the game winning 83-80 to keep the lead in the Lebanese Basketball League 2016.

With no doubt the Man of the match was Riyadi's captain Jean Abd el Nour who dominated the court on defense and offence with 20 points and 8 rebounds.

The X-Factor of the game was Jeremiah Massey, who came off the bench to score 10 points, 2 gold rebounds and 2 steals to lead his team in the 4th quarter.

From Tadamon, Desmond Penigar was the best player, taking difficult shots in crucial time in the game and had 26 points, 5 rebounds, 1 steal and 3 block shots.

Moe Ibrahim,Branco and Vladan gave a good performance also!

The weird fact in this game was Tadamon missing important free-throws, especially Branco who has a good percentage usually.

For their Next Fixture, Riyadi are going to face Mouttahed in Manara on Saturday and Tadamon will host Champville.
