ZBA nominate 4 clubs for Africa Cup

THE Zambia Basketball Association (ZBA) has nominated four clubs to represent the country at the Africa Cup for Champion Clubs qualifying tournament in Angola.
ZBA general secretary Mwembe Kaona said in a statement issued in Lusaka yesterday that the association has nominated men’s national champions Matero Magic, runners-up University of Zambia (UNZA) Pacers and women’s champions UNZA Honeys and runners-up Napsa Hurricanes.
Kaona said UNZA Basketball Club has confirmed their availability while Napsa are awaiting approval from sponsors.
“Magic have not said anything yet but ZBA is hopeful they will give their position in good time,” he said.
The International Basketball Federation gave the July 30 deadline for confirmation of participation and August 20 for the submission of team lists.
The tournament is set for October 29 to November 5 in Luanda.
Zambia hosted the club championships in 2013 but no club entered in the 2014 event.
