One of the tournament favourites, Dolphins, defeated Delta Force 95-72. It was the second defeat Delta Force will suffer so far in Ibadan. The team lost by just two points against Sunshine Angels on Saturday.

The result puts the Delta team in a tight position to make it to the Grand Finale billed to take place in Lagos later in the month.

Incidentally, it was the second victory in two games for the high-flying Dolphins that also defeated Ahip Queens 98-81 on Saturday.

In other matches, the defending champion, First Bank, were too much for the FCT Queens as they whipped the Abuja Ladies 94-32 to maintain their unbeaten run, just like Dolphin.

Benue Princesses brightened their chances of making it to the final by beating Plateau Rocks 79-78 in a keenly contested encounter that kept spectators on the edge of their seat. The Princesses were also able to pip FCT Queens with just two points on Saturday.

Another tight match was witnessed in the encounter between GT 2000 and Sunshine Queens of Akure. Sunshine were leading at half time with three points but eventually lost the match 50-48.

The competition continues today at the same venue in Ibadan.
