FOUR Lusaka basketball sides go into action this evening in the 2013 Sprite National Basketball Championship Play-offs with men’s defending champions, University of Zambia (UNZA) Pacers and women holders, Shells both involved.
In what is expected to be an explosive weekend, Zambia’s top four teams in the men and women categories will be going at each other like gladiators amid a noisy and cheering crowd in a best-of-three format.
