The match will bring together the top two teams in Lebanese basketball, with Byblos aiming to prove their legitimacy by winning both the Henry Chalhoub friendly tournament and the Lebanese Cup titles – both of which did not feature Riyadi. The Jbeil side have been in scintillating form as they remain unbeaten this season, having showed huge offensive prowess led by American newcomer Steven Burtt and compatriot Jay Youngblood. Burtt has been the recent Jbeil revelation, netting 29 points to lead Byblos past Sagesse in the final last Saturday 86-71 .Byblos coach Nenad Vucnic has attempted this season to play with three foreign guards, with American Sherwood Brown the third player, while relying on five local names in the front court, Joe Vogel, William Pharis, Ali Kanaan, Bassel Bawji and Joe Abi Khers.
