A five point loss (81-86) to SOA in its second outing prevented Spintex from registering an unblemished campaign in the Ivorian economic capital.

The team is expected to arrive in Ghana later today after representing Ghana well in the tournament that had top flight basketball teams in various West African nations like Kwara Falcons of Nigeria and ASPAC of Benin participate in.
