Last updated 9 months ago | By Ernest Ndunda

Defending champions Equity Bank women’s basketball team’s hopes of retaining the 2019 FIBA Africa Zone Five Women Basketball Club championship went up in smoke after they were bundled out by Ugandan giants JKL Dolphines on Friday night at Taifa Indoor gymnasium in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania.

However, Kenya had something to smile about after former champions Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) powered their way to the final.

It was end of the road for the Kenyan bankers after they lost 62-53 to the Ugandans who are marking their third year since the formation of the team.
