Both these teams, whenever they play each other, provide the spectators the thrill of a nail biting finish and this year it was the same story. UOWD were leading by a point to victory till the last ten seconds of the match. However Ali Hazer(AUS) got the much needed two points to for AUS and got the score line to 28-27 to confirm the victory for AUS. UOWD were unlucky in the last 20 seconds when Kamels basket was disallowed by the referee, this was what stopped UOWD from being the winning team. Hamid, Kamel & Ali had a good match for UOWD while Ali Hazer & Khalid Ismail played a stellar role for AUS, Hamid Moeini of UOWD was declared 'Player of the Tournament' for his outstanding performance throughout the event.
