NIGERIA : Zenith Bank League: Dolphins, Sunshine Win

The Dolphins and Sunshine Angels teams are riding high in Abuja where the Losers’ Conference tournament is holding in the Zenith Bank Female Basketball
League. And this is simply according to pre-match analyses.
After the wins on the opening day, the teams also won their games yesterday to stay unbeaten. The Dolphins beat Oluyole Babes of Ibadan 65-28 in the first match of the day. In the other game played at the National Stadium, Abuja Sunshine Angels of Akure cut down Dodan Amazons 56-39. The third game which would have been between Bauchi Queens and Plateau Rocks could not hold as the teams remain absent from the championship venue.
The wins for both teams mean that they remain the top teams in the championship and which also explains that the match between both sides would determine the winner of that conference. Even though the Dolphins are more rated than the Sunshine team, both teams have not met this year as the Dolphins arrived Abuja as one of the best losers of the Western Conference held in Akure while Sunshine played in Asaba through the Equatorial Conference.
The top two teams in the championship originally billed to end on Tuesday would qualify for the Final-8 play off in Lagos.
