DSTV Nigeria Basketball League Enters Week 6

Lagos Islanders who moved back to the DSTV Nigeria Basketball League summit, thanks to a 68-55 points victory over Oluyole Warriors will battle the impressive new campaigners Kwara Falcons who surprisingly lost at home last week to Police Baton.
Islanders have won all their home games this season while Kwara Falcons have a 1-1 record in Lagos (their famous upset of Union Bank and their narrow loss to Dodan Warriors).
Oluyole Warriors also boast of a 4-game winning streak at home, will take on Union Bank who seem to have gotten their ‘mojo’ back after a stuttering season.
Union Bank who are on a 3-game winning streak will face a tough battle against the Warriors at the intimidating Adamasingba Stadium in Ibadan.
The game between Dodan Warriors who narrowly fell 64-62 last week to Union Bank will be banking on the foreign Imports Romaric Quenum (Benin Rep) and Mike Savadogo (Burkina Faso) to be guns blazing tomorrow, as well as reigning MVP Azuoma Dike who is nursing a minor injury. While Customs will hope to consolidate on last weeks triumph over former champions Royal Hoopers.
Slumping former back to back Champions Royal Hoopers, who are languishing at the bottom of the Atlantic Conference will play host the bullish Police Baton team who last week won back to back games for the first time this season.
Both team are yet to find their feet this season which is evident position on the lower end of the table.
Also in the Savannah Conference, struggling giants Kada Stars will entertain the strong charging Bulls of Gombe in Kaduna. Kada who have one just one game in 5, will entertain Gombe who led on Bauchi Nets with 40 point victory last week. Kada have won just 1 of 3 home games this season and yet to win in 3 away fixtures.
Plateau Peaks will also entertain unbeaten league champions Kano Pillars. Kano beat their closest rivals in the conference last week to record a 5-1 win loss record over Mark Mentors. The Champions are raring to make it 6 wins from 6 this weekend.
Meanwhile the Peaks’ last game at home ended unceremoniously to an unrest from fans and it cost them a deserved sanction by the league body.
Mark Mentors who lost their unbeaten start to the season to bitter rivals Kano Pillars, will host Immigration in Abuja.
The formidable Mentors side will hope to bounce back to winning ways just like their opponents who lost last week. The Mark Mentors have an excellent home record while Immigration have won 2 of their 3 away games.
Niger Potters who are still smarting on a their first win of the season in Kaduna, will host Bauchi Nets in Minna. The struggling Nets are on a 3-game losing streak while Potters snapped their 4-game losing streak last week.
