Kenya: All Kenyan Final Looms in Zone Five Show

AN all Kenyan women's finals looms in the Fiba Africa Zone Five club championships at the Lugogo Indoor Stadium, Kampala tomorrow.
Reigning women champions Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and Eagle Wings avoided each other in the semi finals due to be played yesterday. KPA topped pool A while Wings emerged the best in pool B.
KPA whipped Berco of Burundi 81-44 Hilda Indasi scored 21 and Yvonne Akinyi hit 17. They were due to play Uganda Christian University (UCU) in the semis. Wings were to meet Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) in the other semis. KCB Lions also continued their dominant show hitting D Mark Power of Uganda 86-70 to romp into the semis. Tobias Onyango nailed 28 points. The bankers were to take on reigning men champions Urunani of Burundi.
In other games, UCU beat Don Bosco 83-51 with the Kenyan duo of Loraine Akinyi and Purity Auma scoring 22 and 17. Saida Ahmed had 12 for Don Bosco. Savio lost 51-90 to Espoir of Rwanda. Makani Majija nailed 13 points for the Tanzanians while Muhire Jacques had 22 points and Kabangu Kami 20 for the Rwandese.
Meanwhile Mombasa' clubs are set to battle it out in the ongoing Coast basketball league whose action shifts from the High Level court in Docks to Buxton this weekend. Coast Basketball Association chairman Ali Hilmy said yesterday the change in venue is meant to break the monotony of using one court and also make full use of the new Buxton Hawks home court.
Hilmy praised the standard of the Buxton court which was officially launched by former Tourism MP Najib Balala three months ago and was funded by Mvita CDF funds to the tune of Sh 900,000. "This weekend's programme is one of the major happenings on the new court which meets the standards of such high profile events like the league," he said.
All the five matches expected today involve clubs save for the last game of the day which features Mombasa Polytechnic University College and Kisauni Kings. High flying Makupa Lakers will clash with the hosts, Buxton Hawks in the opening match of the day. This paves the way for another high profile battle between Kiembeni and Congo Nets. The day will close with Tumaini Takers taking on Gorofani Raptors before Coast Kings go head to head with Mtopanga.
