Luanda, 05/07 - 1º de Agosto won on Friday, for the ninth time, the "Angola Cup" in basketball, beating Petro de Luanda by 75-74.

Although this was a dispute between the country`s two best teams, the public did have a good "show" aswas expected.

The best players for both teams, such as Miguel Lutonda (1º de Agosto) and Baduna (Petro de Luanda) did not give their usual performances, thus, disappointing the audience.

At the end of the first half 1º de Agosto were winning 44-41.

In the third quarter, the Nigerian player Obiora of 1º de Agosto could not continue the game after spraininghis right foot.

Petro de Luanda were good at defending but could not do just as good in the attack.
