Nigeria Basketball Federation reschedules male, female leagues

The Nigeria Basketball Federation has rescheduled the commencement of the DSTV Men’s Basketball League and the Zenith Bank Women’s League.

The rescheduling of the dunk-off dates for the leagues is based on the financial challenges faced by some clubs in both leagues. Only a few of them have met the registration deadline few days from the start of the new season.
The NBBF, after consultations with their sponsors, Multichoice/DStv and Zenith Bank Plc respectively, has rescheduled the DStv League for March 13 to 20 while the Zenith League Phase 1, earlier slated for March 15 to 25, has now been postponed to the third week of April (after the elections).

According to the NBBF, a new game schedule would be issued.

The federation said it is confident this development will afford teams the time to conclude all arrangements for the new season and meet their obligations.
