KENYA : Kenyan ladies frustrate at continental showpiece

Kenya’s representatives at the Fiba Africa Women Club Championships Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and United States International University- Africa (USIU-A) are going through tough times in Tunisia.
USIU-A has so far conceded two century scores in their three losses while KPA has a single win from a walkover.
The results are bound to raise many questions about the preparedness levels of the Kenyan teams. USIU-A lost 49-100 to INSS from Democratic Republic of Congo, 58-102 against Dolphins of Nigeria and 59-78 to CSPC of Tunisia.
KPA lost the first game 58-79 to Sfaxien from Tunisia before earning a 20-0 walkover win over INJIS from Cameroon. The dockers lost third match 47-79 to Angola’s Primeiro de Agosto.
Selected results have Dolphins record a 68-59 win over CSPC, Interclube beat CSPC 73-56, ESR beat Sporting 66-65, IR Tanger beat CRDB 57-50 while Nigeria's First Bank won 77-66 over CSS.
League play-offs
Locally, the Kenya Basketball Federation league playoffs enter the semifinal stage this weekend with five games on the cards.
Defending champions Co-operative Bank will make the long journey to Mombasa for their duel against KPA in the best of five series.
Game one will be played on Saturday at the Makande Gymnasium with the second one taking place on Monday at the same venue.
Three more games will be staged at the Nyayo National Stadium gymnasium on Sunday. Ulinzi Warriors will host USIU-A in the second semifinal of the men premier.
The soldiers will have it tough with the likelihood of missing point guards Eric Mutoro and Tiberius Manya for the remainder of the playoffs.
The two are expected to proceed for military training and their absence will give head coach William Balozi a headache. Zetech University will play host to Dankind Academy in the first division one playoffs tie while Umoja host Kenya College of Accountancy- University (KCA-U).
The two ties are very crucial because the two teams making it to the final will earn automatic promotion to the men premier league next season.
KBF playoffs Fixtures: Saturday- KPA Men vs Co-op Bank (Mombasa, 4pm); Sunday- Zetech University vs Dankind Academy (Nyayo gymnasium, 12pm), Umoja vs KCA-U (2pm), Ulinzi Warriors vs USIU-A (4pm); Monday- Co-op Bank vs KPA Men (Mombasa, 4pm).
