Five make-or-break men and women’s national basketball play-offs semi-final Game Two matches are on the card at the Nairobi’s Nyayo National Stadium on Saturday starting at 9am.

Posta will lead four other teams which got off to a flying start by winning their opening Game One matches of the best-of-three series in Nairobi, Mombasa and Nakuru last weekend.

Another win for, Kenya Ports Authority men and women’s teams, Posta, Ulinzi Warriors and Trail Blazers will see them qualify for the 2010 play-offs finals on a 2-0 run.
But should the losers; men’s champions KCB Lions, Co-op Bank, Nakuru Club, Mennonites and Strathmore women’s team rise to the occasion to tie the series 1-1, the decisive Game Three matches to separate them are scheduled for the same venue on Sunday.

KPA men’s side caused the play-offs major upset beating champions KCB Lions 87-71 in Mombasa while the dockwomen also humiliated Strathmore University 79-36.
