On Saturday, Co-op Bank, who beat Blazers 86-50 last weekend, will start as favourites against Charles Goro’s Kenya College of Accountancy-University while the mailmen will confront Lomboritz on Sunday.


Joseph Amoko, Kenya Basketball Federation (KBF) said the change of venue was necessitated due to the unavailability of World Hope Centre on Saturday and Sunday.

Amoko said Nairobi fixtures had been switched to the Lavington venue last weekend because of the on-going renovations at the Nyayo Stadium and apologised to all teams for the inconveniences.

Posta struggled to beat University of Nairobi’s Terrorists 44-40 to move to the second spot on the 12-team standings with 14 points from six wins and two loses.

KCB Lions, without a game this weekend, are likely to drop to the second with 15 points.

After going down 86-70 to Ulinzi Warriors, Trail Blazers have another chance to improve on their mediocre performance when they host Nakuru Club on Saturday at 12pm.
