VIJANA 'City Bulls' will be looking to close the gap with the Dar es Salaam Basketball League (RBA) leaders JKT when they take on Kurasini Heats today at the National Indoor Stadium. 'City Bulls', who are currently in the fourth spot of the league standing with 19 points, will go for a win against Kurasini Heats, who sit second bottom in the standing with 13 points when the league resumes after a month break. However, Vijana should expect a stiff competition from their opponents, as they will also be fighting to rescue themselves from the relegation zone. Today's game will mark the opening of the league's second round. The Basketball Dar es Salaam (BD) Technical and Competition Director, Jimmy Nkongo, said that apart from the 'City Bulls' and Kurasini Heats game, the day will also witness another encounter, which will be televised live by Azam Television between Chang'ombe United and Tanzania Prisons scheduled to start at 8pm. According to Nkongo, the league will continue tomorrow with three games, which will see Tanzania Prisons locking horns with Jeshi Stars in the ladies category, while in men's group, Jogoo will play against Pazi and Chui will battle it out against Oilers. On Sunday, Savio will take on Don Bosco Young Stars and the next game will be between Oilers and Mgulani JKT. The day will also see Chui taking on Chang'ombe United, while JKT and Vijana 'City Bulls' will face off in the final match of the day. The RBA league came to a halt a month ago as JKT were leading in the standing with 22 points followed by Pazi. Pazi settled in second spot on goals differences as they tie on points with Mgulani and Vijana, who are in third and fourth spots respectively.
In ladies category, JKT Stars are leading with seven points followed by Don Bosco Lioness also with seven points, but Stars are in the lead on goals difference. They have scored 285 goals compared to 239 bagged by their opponents. Vijana Queens and Chang'ombe United are at the bottom of the league in the ladies and men's categories respectively.
