After a long break the National Basketball League is set to kickoff on 13-May 2018 with fixtures out already.
Javon Ladies will grace the season opening against Nkumba Lady Marines while newly promoted UMU Ravens will be tested by Lady Dolphins.
In the Men’s category another newly promoted Charging Rhino will have their NBL breath cautioned by JKL Dolphins while last season’s runner’s up KIU Titans will play away to new side KCCA Men.
Our Savior will have their first game against Sharing Youth and a 6 fixture day will be climaxed by an epic show down of the 2 sides with the most championships in the league.
Champions City Oilers will flex with Betway Power in a breath taking encounter. Power dominated Oilers in the regular season claiming a double of victories but the champions laughed best with a sweep in the play offs over Power.
City Oilers has dominated the last 5 seasons and they seem to still have the best players in the mix and surely expected to create an inspiring atmosphere inside the MTN Arena.
Day 1 and 2 full fixtures.
