Equity Bank Hawks will play Ulinzi Blades in the Kenya Basketball Federation women premier league playoffs quarterfinal game one on Sunday hoping for an easier game.
The bankers join Masaku Sparks as the other debutant to have made it to the playoffs.
The game on Sunday will be a repeat of their inter-conference tie played last weekend with the bankers winning 56-53.
Equity finished second in eastern conference with 35 points while Ulinzi was third in western conference with 29 points.
Equity Bank head coach David Maina has said the result means nothing since the approach in regular season is different from that of playoffs.
In men’s premier league, Co-op Bank is also in a must-win scenario against USIU-A after losing game one.
Blades will play against Nairobi City Thunder, Ulinzi Warriors will face off with Equity Bank while KPA play Nakuru Club all in game one.
4-Christ and Africa Nazarene University (ANU) have an upper hand in division one after winning game one against Barclays Bank and Upper Hill respectively.
They will play game two this Saturday with Eldonets playing Trailblazers and Kenya College of Accountancy- University (KCA-U) playing Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) in game one
