The eight teams that progressed from the Round of 16 in this year’s Mark D Ball men’s basketball championship will resume hostilities in the ‘Elite 8’ which will dunk-off Wednesday, June 15 at the Indoor Sports Hall, located inside Package B of the MKO Abiola national stadium in Abuja.

The eight teams have been grouped into two groups of four teams each.

In the opening game of MatchDay 1, all eyes will be on Nigeria Customs who are favourites, at least on paper, to overcome Delta Force of Asaba in Game One of MatchDay One.

Victory for the Customs male team will surely put them on course to emulate their ladies who won the women’s edition of the Mark D Ball championship early this year.

In other MatchDay One games, Gombe Bulls will sweat it out with Kwara Falcons of Ilorin; while the only team with a 100% win record, so far in the competition, Mo Heat will clash with the youngsters of FCT HardRockers, in a mouth-watering Abuja derby.

Meanwhile, underdogs, Hot Coal Ballers of Abuja will then have to battle the odds when taking on giants, Kano Pillars, in the last game of Matchday One.
