Blazers on Saturday qualified for the men's Kenya Basketball Federation Division Two play-offs semi-final after battling from behind to register a 56-50 win over MKU Thika in Game Two at Strathmore University, Madaraka. The victory saw Blazers eliminate MKU Thika 2-0 in the best-of-three series quarter-finals following their 62-57 win in Game One. Saturday's match was a repeat of Game Two which was rained off last weekend in the first quarter when both teams had 10-10. Blazers, led by veteran forward Eugene Genga (196-F-82), had early intentions of wrapping up the series after surging to a 17-11 lead in the first quarter. Blazers were down 28-31 at the breather but stepped up their game to outscore MKU Thika 15-7 in the third quarter. The students, who needed to win to tie the series 1-1 and force decisive Game Three, continued to fight bravely with the fourth quarter ending with a 13-13. Blazers sailed into the quarter final after finishing regular season in third position with 31 points from 13 wins and six loses. MKU Thika advanced to the play-offs after grabbing the sixth spot with 31 points from 11 wins and nine losses.

The Game Two match between ANU and Strathmore University was still being on by the time of going to press. Ulinzi Warriors were also scheduled to host champions Kenya Ports Authority in their men's Premier League regular season second leg match later on Saturday. Ulinzi against KPA match was to decide the regular season winner to meet the eighth-rated team in the play-off quarter-finals. Ulinzi Warriors currently top the league standings with 40 points after having won 19 matches and lost two. KPA are in second position after garnering 39 points from 18 wins and three losses. On Sunday, former champions Co-operative Bank will open their campaign of recapturing the league title they last won in 2013 against Umoja in the play-offs at 11.30am.
