The official launch of the Zuku Universities Basketball League (ZUBL) will be held on Saturday 18th May at the Nyayo national stadium with breathtaking action expected to light up the Nyayo stadium gymnasium.

Action starts at 4:30PM with lots of entertainment also lined up to electrify the start of an action packed season.

Early this year, Zuku unveiled a 50 Million shillings sponsorship that will go towards supporting the running of the KUSA basketball league. This will also include the production of an exclusive basketball Television magazine show to be aired on Zuku Sports channels. The show -christened BaQe - premiered on Thursday night and will be hosted by top Kenyan Baller Silalei Shani and DNG.

On Saturday, three matches will highlight the action at Nyayo: The Tigers of USIU who were runners up in last year’s KBF Premier League will welcome Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology from Kakamega. This will be an explosive fixture as both teams are blazing with good experience gained from the premier league.

The University of Nairobi Terrorists will host KCA Dynamites while Maseno University Challengers will play JKUAT’s Straycats.

Besides the action on the court, the sidelines will also be full of excitement with DJ Styles and his CodeRed crew in charge of propelling excitement.

The Zuku Basketball League (ZUBL) seeks to open up opportunities for talents and also offer a good platform for university students to showcase their skills in basketball.

Besides the tournament, the ZUBL also organized a coaches’ clinic purposed to equip coaches with latest skills before commencement of the season.
