NU-Q Crowned Champions of Qatar’s Collegiate Basketball League

‘This year saw us really grow as a team, with the strong leadership of our two team captains and some excellent new additions,’ said coach Emily Wilson. ‘We put a lot of focus on learning to work together and trust each other on the court – when that happened, we got great results.’

Northwestern University in Qatar’s women’s basketball team won Qatar’s collegiate basketball league tournament on Saturday in a 26-21 victory over Qatar Academy. This is the first time the NU-Q women’s team has taken first place in either the tournament or in the league.

Co-captain and senior Dana Atrach, who helped start the team in her freshman year, was awarded the tournament’s MVP trophy. Sophomores Maha Al Ansari, Gena El Aker, and junior Sarah Sabry received all-star team awards.

The Wild Scotts, comprised of players from NU-Q and Carnegie Mellon University Qatar, won the men’s division tournament, beating Weill Cornell Medical College Qatar in the finals.

NU-Q coaches are confident that their winning streak will continue until National Sports Day, when the men’s football 8-a-side final is due to take place. The Pirates – a team made up of NU-Q and Texas A&M University in Qatar students – will compete with TAMUQ’s team for the championship title at an event open to the public in Hamad bin Khalifa University Recreation Center at 3:30 pm.
