The Luanda-based Petro led their Congolese opponent from the start to finish winning in all four quarters by 17-09, 22-11, 25-18 and 28-22 points to further compound the diminishing fortune of the Mazembe side that now has a 0-2 record.

Mazembe’s Mbav Kabwit had a double effort of 18 points and 11 rebounds just as Kantu Kubala posted 11 points and 3 rebounds for their side.
