Mzuzu's Dynamites emerged tops as the fight for places in the national finals of the K2.5 million Sprite basketball tournament reached its climax the Northern Region Basketball Zone (Nozobal) on Sunday.
Dynamites easily overcame competition from the other two contestants Northern Pistons and Mzuzu University Lakers to cart home a cool K15,000. They beat the Pistons 81-58.
Pistons still managed to grab second spot after seeing off the Lakerz 86-36 and collected K10,000 while Mzuni went home with K5,000.
Moyale and Ekwendeni failed to turn up for the tournament due to different reasons.
“We have been informed that the Moyale guys were tied up while Ekwendeni didn't have transport but nevertheless, the games were very competitive,” said Nozobal chair Chimwemwe Mhone.

According to Mhone, renovations of the court will start Wednesday.
