Lebanese basketball fans will watch this season with unwavering focus as one of the league's deadliest marksmen, Sagesse's shooting guard Elie Stephan, aims to help his side reclaim the league title for the first time in a decade.Stephan opened the league with a great display after netting 25 points including 4-of-9 from beyond the arc in his side's 83-78 victory over title contenders Amchit. After two games of the new season, Stephan is averaging 20 points per game and a promising 50.5 percent from the 3-point line. Now for the title aspirations, it means so much to me that I am wearing this jersey, because I grew up while the club was achieving glory, so I knew deep down that I am not wearing any jersey, I am representing history, I am representing a team that won the league title eight times, the Asian Championship three times and the Arab Championship twice.Q: Who do you think are the main competitors for the title along with Sagesse?A: Riyadi are the team who definitely come to mind first, but also you can't write off other teams, especially Amchit with a veteran coach like Ghassan Sarkis and a player like Fadi El-Khatib. I feel Amchit lack a good bench in comparison to Riyadi and Sagesse, but they can beat any team on any night.
