TM Rockets became the new EMIMA Basketball League champions after beating Don Bosco Upanga in the final held over the weekend at the National Indoor Stadium, Dar es Salaam.
The defending champions, Don Bosco could not believe that they had lost the title even though TM Rockets won convincingly 45-27.
TM Rockets’ determination to clinch the title began to show in the second quarter when they established a 19-7 lead.
Morris Okinda was the top scorer with 19 points followed by his team mate Christian Mrema who bagged 11 points. On Don Bosco’s side, Patrick Ngome was the top scorer with 11 points.
In the Under 14 event Don Bosco retained their title after thrashing JKT 24-12 while in the girls’ discipline Ally Hassan Mwinyi School took the title after beating Don Bosco 10-3.
Organised by EMIMA, a non-governmental organisation that deals with education and sports in collaboration with Dar es Salaam Basketball Body (BD), this year’s tournament was much improvement as both the Under 14 and Under 18 categories produced wonder players.
