Even a massive 28-11 win by the Kisumu side in the last quarter could not turn the tide as Strathmore held on to win by five baskets.

In the women’s Premier League, KPA women continued with their dominance after defeating University of Nairobi Dynamites 53-33.

Inform KPA captain Vilma Achieng dropped 15 points to lead the Dockers to victory followed by Beckie Nkatha with 10 points which saw them maintain their lead a the top of the standings with 31 points after 16 matches.
