All is set for the 2022 Khomas Basketball Association (KBA) Cup finals scheduled for UN Plaza in Windhoek on Saturday.

This was confirmed by KBA president Helena Uugwanga on Thursday, who said all preparations are going well.

“We will start with some junior high school games from 10h00 on Saturday. The men’s final will kick off at 13h00, followed by the All-Star Game which will feature Namibian celebrities. After that, we will have a dunking competition where the crowd will participate before we round it off with the women’s final,” Uugwanga said.

She added that there will be extra security for spectators, players and vehicles for the day, while a DJ will keep the crowd entertained in between.

Uugwanga said they decided to take the finals to UN Plaza because the venue is closer to the people and most KBA basketball players learned their trade at the UN Plaza courts.

“We want our fans to enjoy the day, hence we have partnered with Vivo Energy. There will be prizes for the dunking competition. Basketball fans must come in numbers to witness an epic final for no charge,” she said.

In the field of play, University of Namibia (Unam) Rebels will face off with Titans in a battle of the underdogs as both teams have played second fiddle to Unam Wolves over the past few years.

Titans dumped Wolves out of the competition in the semi-finals in a nail-biting 65-64 thriller at the Deutsche Höhere Privatschule (DHPS) courts on 22 July, while the next day Rebels overcame Afro Stars 78-48.

In the women’s section, Unam Phoenix triumphed over TBA Silverswords 85-27 to set up a final match clash with Unam Sparks, who steamrolled over Quality Basketball Club 77-24 in the second semi-final.
