APR, Marine, Espoir and CSK A booked their slots in the semi-finals of this year’s Heroes tournament after a fine show on Sunday.

The Quartet, that entered the tournament as favorites, lived to their billing as they topped their respective groups.

CSK A topped Group A after registering wins over Kigali Institute of Education (KIE) and the national junior basketball team that is gearing up for this year’s Africa Junior Cup of Nations qualifiers scheduled for next month.

Reigning champions and tournament organizers, APR finished second in that group.
In Group B, national league champions Marine registered three wins over Espoir, Rwanda National University (UNR) and Basketball United Generation (BUG). Espoir beat UNR and BUG to finish second.

The semi-finals will be played next Saturday at Amahoro indoor courts.
Heroes’ tournament is an annual tournament on the Rwanda basketball federation (Ferwaba) calendar that is held to honor Rwandans who lost their lives in the struggle to liberate the country.
