KENYA : New Women's Side Sparks Join KBF Premier League

A new women's team Sparks has joined the Kenya Basketball Federation Premier League and are set to open their fixtures this weekend. KBF competition secretary Joseph Amoko said Sparks face newly promoted Equity Bank in their maiden match on Sunday at Nyayo Stadium starting 10 am.
"Yes it is true we have included a new team to the women's league and the move is aimed at making the event more competitive. The team has good talent and one can only underrate them at his or her own peril," said Amoko.
He revealed that Sparks have replaced Safe Spaces who opted to move back to the Nairobi Basketball Association provincial league, citing diminished player personnel. Among key players who have moved to this new club include former national team captain Silalei Shani, Sylvia Koech, Pam Sinda (Eagle Wings), Anne Lyambila, Rachel Makena (Gladiators), Mitchelle Otinda (Usiu), Betty Kanani (KU), Doreen Jambari (Daystar).
Amoko also disclosed that Dankind Academy have pulled out of the lower division. They will be replaced by Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology. The varsity was set for demotion to the provisional league.
In the NBA matches played at Railways Club over the weekend, Mt Kenya University pipped Legacy 57-53, Usiu defeated Daystar University 41-25 and Our Lady Queen of Peace Embakasi Dynamoz 56-30. In other matches, Riara University made a grand debut sinking Machakos Hawks 78-29, Catholic University fell 36-31 to Technical University while Usiu made it two wins in a row after beating Ulinzi 53-44.
