Despite UBA consistently improving from year to year, all odds were in favor of another finals clash between archrivals Riyadi and Sagesse.The best-of-seven final series will tip off Thursday in Manara, where Riyadi will host Game 1, aiming to record a record-extending 25th title.At the start of the season, UBA's ambitions were far more modest than Riyadi's as the Jbeil side previously had not gone further than semifinals, an achievement they attained last season.But they will hope to be the fourth team to win the championship in the last 20 years, with Champville's title triumph in 2012 the only occasion when Sagesse or Riyadi were not champions.Riyadi have had a lot of individualism to deal with.
