This weekend’s Basketball premier league matches involving Shimba Hills have been shelved until further notice. This will therefore mean the Shimba Hills fixtures against Eagle Wings and Mennonites will not be played as planned this weekend.
Eagle Wings will instead play league leaders USIU on Saturday and Strathmore on Sunday. The match against USIU Flames is guaranteed to be an exciting encounter since both teams have been enjoying top form so far this season.
USIU Flames, the leading team on the KBF’s women’s log is the only team to be unbeaten with an 8/8 performance getting 16 points along the way while Eagle Wings has dropped a match against KPA on 6th July. The defending champions are third on the log with 3rd 6 wins and one loss. Storms are second with 14 points from 9 matches having won 5 of those.
After a powerful start, Western Delight who were beaten by the champions last weekend in Kakamega find themselves at position 5 after 8 matches, they have won 4 and lost the same number of matches.

The second half of the table sees Safe Spaces with 10 points while the Mombasa based KPA follows with 9 points. KPA will be travelling to Nairobi this coming weekend and they will be facing Mennonites on Saturday.
Sylvia Kamau’s Strathmore University shares the same number of points as KPA but has played a match more (6 matches) compared to the Porters. Strathmore will face Eagle Wings on Sunday at the Nyayo Gymnasium in another match that proves to be a cracker. NYTA-Shimba Hills and Mennonites share 7 points at position and 9 and 10 respectively.
Gladiators close the table standings with 6 points. The side has played 6 matches losing all of them and forfeiting one match. The league resumes over the weekend.
