In the Premier League ladies 2011 Defending Champions Eagle Wings will face USIU Flames in game one at the Nyayo Gymnasium from 3 pm. USIU qualified for the finals after beating Co-op Bank 52-48 in game three of the semi-finals after they were tied at 1-1 in the first 2 matches of the best of three series.
