Strathmore Blades tackle Blazers at 4.30 pm hoping to bring to an end their back to back losing streak after falling to KPA and Thunder respectively.
Western Delight welcome Storms at Kakamega Police canteen tomorrow at 10 am and the host will be hoping to complete a double on Ben Oluoch’s side led by Mercy Wanyama.
Eagle Wings despite the absence of their star players like Shani Silalei,Angela Okoth and Samba Mjomba will take on USIU Flames who will also be missing their evergreen guard Hilda Indasi. The game kicks off at 3pm before ISIU Tigers return to the court for their second game of the weekend to square it out with a hard fighting Mennonites.
