Imperious Mahram beat Al Rayyan of Qatar on Sunday and claimed its second successive title of the FIBA Asia Champions Cup on Sunday. Defending champion Mahram defeated Al Rayyan 93-73 at the Al Gharafa Stadium in Doha.

"We played exactly to our plan," said Mahram coach Mostafa Hashemi.

Mahram had lost to Al Rayyan 78-72 in the preliminary round. "It's not that we were looking for revenge, but I guess that defeat was always in the back of our mind," Samad Nikkhah said.

Mahram proceeded to The FIBA World Club Championship which will be held in the Chinese cities of Chengdu and Nanjing in October with eight teams participating.

A total of 10 Asian teams took part in the tournament.
