Dar es Salaam. As the Dar es Salaam basketball league gathers pace, Savio and Chang’ombe United are relishing their magnificent start to the regional championship.
The league enters into the third round at the Indoor Stadium this weekend with the two giant teams still unbeaten.
Savio, the defending champions, began their title defence quest with a 49-32 victory over Pazi before posting a supremely convincing 75-42 win over PTW in the second game.
Chang’ombe embarked on the league with a 77-62 win over Chui and went on to punish Airwing Boys 84-55 last weekend.
In women’s league, Lady Lioness and Jeshi Stars are the teams that are highly tipped for the title having established an early lead.
The Lioness beat Vijana Queens 67-47 in their second match after being gifted a walkover against CMTU.
Defending champions Jeshi Stars clobbered their traditional rivals JKT 51-43 in their opener, and stand a big chance to win their next game.
