Indasi scored 13 points against KCC while Linda Mfuchi had 10 points.

Defending champions Eagle Wings departed Nairobi on Tuesday evening after and are expected to open their campaign on Wednesday as their match against APR from Rwanda ws postponed to Thursday upon request.

Eagle Wings were not sure of traveling to Burundi as they had ot raised the needed 3 Million shillings needed to finance the trip.

However the Kenyan government on Monday stepped in to rescue them by purchasing team air tickets for the 17 members of the traveling team.
