BEIRUT (Lebanon) - Kuwait Club fulfilled their destiny after becoming the inaugural WASL-Gulf League champions following a 95-85 Game 2 victory over Manama in the Final,  Monday night at the Khalifa Sport City in Bahrain.


Marcus Georges-Hunt scored 14 of his season-high 35 points in the fourth quarter, helping his side close the best-of-3 series out and clinch the title by way of a 10-game sweep -- a feat that will surely be tough to match in years to come.
