Zenith Bank league moves to Ilorin
With the first phase of the Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball league in Abuja concluded last week, action for the second phase now shifts to Ilorin, Kwara state where all sixteen teams in the league will converge from May 1 to 12 for the second phase.
From this second phase, the top-four teams from each group will qualify to the last leg of the league scheduled to hold in Lagos at a date to be announced by the Nigeria Basketball Federation, NBBF.
Defending champion, First Deepwater basketball club and former champion First Bank basketball club remain the only clubs to maintain a hundred percent record in their respective groups.
Meanwhile, Coach Abraham Ogaba of the IGP Queens basketball club has vowed that the Police team will make the final cut to the final phase playoff.
He applauded the NBBF and Zenith Bank for providing a platform for Nigerian women players to continue to exhibit their talents, as called for total support for the Tijani Umar-led NBBF in delivering the gains of the league to the Nigerian basketball community.
