Lady Bucks will be seeking to register their third win in a row when they host the University of Nairobi (UoN) Dynamites in a crucial Kenya Basketball Federation (KBF) women’s Premier League match in Kisumu on Saturday.

The Dave Michael-coached side is currently eighth in the standings with 15 points, two away from the danger zone, and will be hoping for their back-to-back wins against Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) Lynx and ANU Panthers.

Lady Bucks will hope the two-weeks rest and two-match winning streak will propel them past Dynamites before playing Strathmore Swords on Sunday.

Other matches will feature Eldonets host Swords in Eldoret as struggling Kenyatta University Oryx play Storms at USIU grounds.

In the men’s Premier League, the battle to avoid relegation will take center stage as struggling Lakeside welcome Strathmore University Blades and the University of Nairobi Terror in the city.

The Lake Victoria-based side have won only one match of the 12 played and need at least to win all their remaining matches to be sure of avoiding the drop starting with the match against Terror. Lakeside will play Strathmore Blades tomorrow.

In Eldoret, Eldonets Platinum who are riding high on their last big win over former champions Ulinzi Warriors will welcome Blades on Saturday before playing Terror.
Eldonets are ninth on the standings with 15 points and a double win at home court will move them into the playoffs positions.
Other matches will see Zetech Titans play Equity Dumas as Pirates entertain Ulinzi Warriors at USIU grounds in Nairobi.
