Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League: First Bank Faces Challenges in Second Phase

In the ongoing second phase of the Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League, First Bank Women’s Basketball team experienced another setback at the Atlantic Conference, suffering a 40-35 defeat to MFM in Asaba, Delta State.

After an undefeated run in the first phase, First Bank started the second phase on a positive note with a victory against IGP Queens. However, their fortunes took a turn as they faced a defeat against Sunshine Angels in the following game.

MFM, the runners-up from the previous edition, compounded First Bank’s woes by securing another victory with a 40-35 scoreline. This win bolsters MFM’s chances of progressing to the finals in Lagos later this month.

Currently, Bayelsa Whales lead the conference with three consecutive wins. They are set to face off against MFM, who also boast three wins in the Second Phase of the conference.

Looking ahead, First Bank will go up against the eliminated Dolphins on Friday, while Sunshine Angels and IGP Queens will engage in another competitive match.

The top two teams from the Atlantic Conference will advance to the finals in Lagos, where they will join Nigerian Customs and Air Warriors from the Savannah Conference for the ultimate showdown later this month.
