In a surprising turn of events, perennial champions of the Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League, First Bank, find themselves on the brink of elimination. Their unblemished record in the First Phase was overshadowed by three consecutive losses in the ongoing Atlantic Conference Second Phase, casting doubt on their path to the finals.
First Bank’s initial victory in the second phase had them poised for a final berth, but subsequent defeats to Sunshine Angels and last season’s finalists, MFM, have left their qualification in jeopardy. Their recent loss to the eliminated Dolphins further compounds their predicament, with hopes now hinging on outcomes from other crucial games to secure a spot in the Lagos finals.
The front-runners, Bayelsa Whales and MFM, are now in prime position, leaving First Bank with a final showdown against the formidable Whales. Meanwhile, Nigerian Customs and Air Warriors have already secured their spots from the Savannah Conference, setting the stage for an intense competition between the top two teams from the Atlantic Conference.
