Shahrdari Gorgan Downs Al-Ittihad Ahli at FIBA WASL

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Shahrdari Gorgan put on a masterclass and schooled Al-Ittihad Ahli, 121-70, on Wednesday night at the Azadi Basketball Hall to remain perfect in the FIBA WASL Season 2.

The home team turned it up in the second period and a one-sided show ensued, eventually snagging the solo lead in Group A of the West Asia League with a 2-0 record.

Will Cherry powered the reigning, three-time Iran champion with a game-high 30 points in just 21 minutes of play. The explosive guard shot an efficient 10-of-17 from the field, and also had 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals.

He was the lone double-digit scorer with the same amount of points after three before the others stepped up to make sure that they stay ahead all the way to the end.

Sina Vahedi finished with 15 points. Khashayar Aliakbarinamaghi and Mobin Sheikhi produced 13 points apiece, while Arsalan Kazemi supplied 11 points and 14 rebounds.
