Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League defending Champions, First Bank of Lagos have qualified for the National Final 8 from the Atlantic Conference Centre in Ibadan after 5 wins.

The qualification of MFM of Lagos didn’t come easy as they snatched a late victory against former Champions, Dolphins on matchday 5 to record their fourth win and punch a final 8 slot alongside Customs whose only loss was to Air Warriors in the Savannah Conference.
The battle for the last ticket in the Atlantic Conference will be between Delta Force of Asaba with 8 points and Sunshine Angels of Akure with 7 points from 2 wins.
Although Nigeria Army Amazons’ qualification is not yet guaranteed in the Savannah Conference, they enjoy third spot in the Conference with Black Gold Queens on 8 points and Plateau Rocks on the 5th spot hot on their heels.
Action will resume on Monday with MFM Queens taking on IGP Queens while Oluyole Babes tackle Sunshine Angels.
