Southern Zone Basketball League (Sozobal) final play-offs for Division One and Ladies Division got underway yesterday.
In men’s Division One, Magang’a and Poly Wildcats are battling for the championship whereas Crazy Warriors and Bricks are competing for bronze.
Ladies Division defending champions Kukoma Eagles are up against rivals Mikoko Mystics in their quest to retain the trophy for the second successive time.
In a third-place play-off, Crazy Warriors Divas will face Joyce Banda Foundation.
Sozobal Publicity Secretary Sekai Mponda said they plan to identify champions in both divisions by December 14.
“We are using best of three series and the team that wins two matches will definitely clinch the championship. The regular season was quite competitive but the play-offs have added colour,” she said.
Mponda said, in the absence of sponsorship, the top three teams would be decorated with medals.
“We are trying our best to market the league and hopefully we will secure sponsorship in future so that the best performers should be rewarded generously,” she said.
