Giants and Ihlathi Hawks, set to square off this past Saturday, will clash at Northlea at 3:30pm on Saturday.

Ndlovu said the Tuesday meeting with Giants did not yield any positive results as he failed to meet the full executive of the team.

“For the good of basketball, we decided that the best we could do is to give them a double header on Saturday. They still have problems at the present moment, though the problems are not clear. The meeting was not successful as I failed to meet the full executive,” Ndlovu said.

In another match of the day, Stars will date Oilers at Northlea at 2:30pm. Meanwhile, the men’s league will up a gear entering cycle four at 2:30pm. At their home ground, Milton will entertain Kings.
