THE Bulawayo Basketball Association (BBA) league resumes this weekend after breaking to make way for a two-day activism against gender-based violence tournament played at Northlea High School last week.
Championship favourites Highlanders will be out to re-define themselves following their 34-42 defeat by Mavericks a fortnight ago.
Highlanders will lock horns with inconsistent Oilers who have so far lost two of their last three league games only managing a 66-57 win against Lords, falling 52-61 to Mavericks before a 42-72 mauling by Giants.
Bosso had been on fire before Mavericks handed them their first league defeat a fortnight ago. The first match of the day will see Stars squaring off against KAOS in what promises to be a fairly-balanced encounter as the two teams have been struggling with their games this season.
Having lost their last three matches, Stars will be hoping to get the better of KAOS to better their position on the log while KAOS seek to register their first win in their past four outings.
KAOS have been losing with big margins in two of their last three fixtures losing 62-107 to Mavericks, humiliated 43-121 by Highlanders before losing to ALCC by 71-60.
Stars also went down in their last game against Kings losing 56-114 following a 24-93 drubbing by Oilers.
In their second match of the day, Stars will lock horns with the in-form Mavericks who will go into the match beaming with confidence after ending Highlanders’ winning streak.
Giants have found their winning formula beating Milton 58-30 before overcoming Oilers 72-47. They will take on Kings.
In the women’s league, Mavericks will be hoping for a second successive league victory as they play against Lakers.
Lakers will engage Highlanders in the match expected to be the highlight of the day in the women’s league.
