Pre-match favourites Strathmore University maintained their unbeaten record in the women’s basketball Premier League following their 48-23 win over Kenya College of Accountancy-University at Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday.
The victory saw the Sylvia Njeri-coached varsity students – the only unbeaten team in the 12-team championship having won all their nine first leg matches – moved to the top of the table standings with 18 points.
They dislodged Eagle Wings from the summit to second spot on 17 points.
Melissa Akinyi hit a game-high 12 points for Strathmore while Lucy Machuma shot eight for the losers, who lie a poor ninth place with only one win from seven outings.
