Inter wins women's basketball. Mozambican Ingvild Cacuaro is MPV

This Wednesday, Interclube snatched its 15th trophy in the National Senior Women's Basketball Championship. In the spotlight was the Mozambican winger Ingvild Macuaro, who converted 19 points and established himself as the MVP of the competition.


In a tight game, but with Interclube always chasing the disadvantage, 1.º de Agosto managed to lead in the first two periods by 24-19 and 35-29, respectively.

In a well-populated Citadela Pavilion, in Luanda, the "police" began to defend better and took the lead during the third period (43-41). The contribution of the North American base Meighan Simmons, who scored 16 points, was also decisive for the recovery of his team. The third leg ended in a tie at 52 points.

In the fourth and decisive period, 1.º de Agosto even reached a lead of 13 points (67-54), letting the victory slip away in the last five minutes of the game. At a stage in which Inter's North American base was out of the game, due to disqualification, everything pointed to a victory for 1.º de Agosto that would tie the tie and force the championship decision to a fifth game. However, Walter Costa, coach of 1.º de Agosto, was penalized with a technical foul, just as his team was winning 71-59. Visibly disoriented, their pupils were unable to react, allowing Interclube to make a quick recovery and subsequent victory, with the achievement of 12 points.

The triumph thus smiled on Interclube, who sealed the victory by just one point, putting the final result of the game at 72-71 and the tie at 3-1, thus becoming national champion.

Although Rosemira Daniel, from 1.º de Agosto, was the best scorer of the match, the title of most valuable player (MVP) of the national team goes to the Mozambican Ingvild Macuaro. The Interclube winger was also considered the best in assists. Carlos Diniz, coach of the champions, was distinguished as the best coach of the competition.

Also noteworthy is the Formigas do Cazenga team, which won a surprisingly and unprecedented third place in the competition and saw three players distinguished. Sara Caetano was the fair-play player of the competition, Fátima Miguel the best scorer and Magda Musol the best retriever.

The Grupo Desportivo Maculusso also stands out, with Helena Francisco having the best percentage of free throws and Filomena Gaspar the best percentage of two-point baskets. Regarding the three points, Rosemira Daniel, from 1.º de Agosto, was the best percentage.

Fernando Seco was also considered the best referee of the competition.
