The Mujahideen Ryders are the 2015-2016 HMBA Champs!
After struggling through ups and downs over the course of the season, the Ryders dug deep and defeated the top two seeds en route to winning the HMBA Cup Championship.
Lead by playoff MVP Filip Pejic’s 35 points and Siratha Chhan’s 8 steals, the Ryders defeated the Taqwa Titans by a score of 80 to 73. The Ryders got off to a sizable lead early on and never looked back. Despite several runs by the Titans to close the gap, the Ryders answered back with key stops and key baskets to keep the Titans at arms length.
The championship game was everything you’d expect a championship game is to be. There were high flying dunks, amazing plays, monster blocks, incredible assists, and the players played with heart and determination.
Mohamed Amin scored 30 points and grabbed 7 rebounds for the Titans in the losing effort.
