NBA Fixtures Secretary Caleb Osewe advised clubs which have not paid up to do so. In other matches, Legacy beat Balozi 71-50 after leading 40-15 at halftime and opening the gap in the last two quarters.


Neosasa Morans defeated Nairobi Deaf Kings 72-25. Sauna overcame Little Prince 71-64, while Old Pirates edged out Madison 68-66. In the women’s category, Safe Paces beat World Hope 58-23.

Meanwhile, Postal Corporation of Kenya (PCK) beat Kenya Civil Aviation Authority 67-63 at the ongoing Kenya Communications Sports Organisations Games at Machakos Municipal Stadium.

PCK won 24-17 the first quarter, and put the scores 37-32 before rest. Upon resumption, it was all systems go as PCK led 54-46 before finishing the match 67-63.

William Ochieng and Tonya Abondo had 22 and 12 points for PCK, while Victor Ochieng’ and Zadock Odhiambo scored 17 and 15 for KCAA.

At the same time, the basketball fraternity meets today to raise funds for the late Kevin Samora, formerly of Posta, at Railway Club in Nairobi.
