Kenya on Sunday failed to replicate Saturday's good form as they fell to the host nation South Africa 64-87 in the 3rd and 4th playoffs match staged in Johannesburg at the Four Nation’s International Basketball tournament.

With the loss, Kenya finished 4th and last overall as the tournament came to a close on Sunday after four days of intensive action.

Kenya had beaten the same team 74-65 on Saturday evening.

 Coach Carrey Odhiambo while speaking after the match said, “We failed to put our minds on this match and used a lot of energy in the match on Saturday in the end we got drained.”

South Africa’s Sifico Nkogo was named the most Valuable player in the match as he scored 20 points.

 Nigeria will play Mozambique in the finals of the tournament.
