HMEM Nubar Cairo’s basketballers lifted the two seniors’ cups of Homenetmen Ararat’s Egyptian Pan-Armenian basketball tournament by winning the final match of the senior’s men tournament against the hosts 77-64 (60-43) and the girls match against Homenetmen Ararat 50-48 (38-35).

The tournament saw the participation of four teams only after St. Therese’s announcement earlier in August of its absence in this year’s remaining Pan-Armenian basketball tournaments.

On Thursday 21st September, the tournament had started with Homenetmen Ararat defeating Homentmen Gamk  68-35, while on Friday 22nd HMEM Nubar Cairo defeated HMEM Nubar Alex 75-50.

U-14 girls and boys matches were also played between Homenetmen Ararat’s juniors and Heliolido during the 3 day tournament which was held from 21 to 23 September 2017.

In the much awaited girls match on Friday 22nd September HMEM Nubar Cairo defeated Homenetmen Ararat 50-48 (13-11, 22-20, 38-35, 50-48) after an exciting match which could have gone either way. The two teams advanced on equal pace all throughout the match, with the girls of HMEM Nubar being in advance in most periods of the game. Thanks to the their determination and team play, the girls of HMEM Nubar Cairo hung out to their continuous advance to grasp the final notch and lift the well-deserved trophy. Hard luck to Homenetmen Ararat for playing real well and fighting hard and congratulations to HMEM Nubar Cairo’s girls who are still on the winning track… just like the boys..

The men’s final on Saturday, HMEM Nubar Cairo defeated Homenetment Ararat 77-64 (13-15, 34-28, 60-43, 77-64).  After a tangled start, Homenetmen Ararat’s players advanced in the first quarter thanks to their compliant and organized play to end the first quarter to their advantage. But the situation changed completely starting from the 2nd quarter when waves of intense attacking upsurges from HMEM Nubar Cairo stretched the score to 34-24 in the 2nd quarter, to a further 60-43 in the 3rd, but cooling down the game in the final quarter when they fielded the younger players to close down to the final score of 77-64.

The tournament was held under the auspices of His Grace Bishop Ashod Mnatsaganian, the Primate of the Armenian Apostolic Church in Egypt with His Grace Bishop Krikor Augostinos Coussan, the Primate of the Armenian Catholic church of Egypt and Jerusalem & HE Dr. Armen Melkonian, the Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia in Egypt as honorary guests.

The tournament was held under the presidency of Mr. & Mrs. Shunt Gabeyan, the Chairman of the Houssaper Cultural Association, the senior men’s cup was offered by Mr. & Mrs. Ara Koehnelian, the senior girls cup by Mr. & Mrs. Manoug Bohdjalian, the U-14 boys cup by Mr. & Mrs. Sherif Koloian and the U-14 girls cup by Mr. & Mrs. Varouj Chilinguirian.
