AMMAN — Orthodoxi play holders Riyadi while Awdeh play Kufr Youba in another decisive day in the Basketball League play-offs on Saturday. Orthodoxi led Round 1 of the competition with an unbeaten record.

As the play-offs started, they beat Kufr Youba 82-64 while Riyadi beat Awdeh 78-69. However this week, standings tilted as Awdeh scored a big upset beating Orthodoxi 72-62 while Riyadi scored a 79-62 win over Kufr Youba.

Awdeh were aided by the signing of Mahmoud Abdeen on the line-up, the star who lead the national team to a third place finish in West Asia earlier this month.

Earlier in the competition, titleholders Riyadi only lost to Orthodoxi as the top four were decided while the bottom four battled it out with Jalil, Anjara, Hurrieh and Deir Abi Saied contesting the relegation play-offs.
