The Atlantic Conference play-offs ended in Lagos Thursday with Kwara Falcons of Ilorin retaining their title after beating rivals, Hoops & Read of Lagos in an exciting encounter on a day Customs sneaked into the top 4 to qualify for the Final 8 after beating Comets 66-59.


The Kwara side who were semi finalists last season were trailing the Lagos side owned by Olumide Oyedeji and needed a win yesterday, 96-90 to ensure they remain Conference champions heading into the Final 8 later next month.
