The Botswana Basketball Association (BBA) League starts tonight in a new format because the number of teams have gone down this season.

Traditionally, the basketball season starts in April, but this year, this did not happen because Botswana was hosting the Africa Youth Games. Because of reduced numbers, there will be no top four clash at the end of the season in the men’s competition. Instead, the top eight men’s teams will engage in a knockout format while the top four women sides will be pitted against each other and not the normal three.

BBA public relations officer, James Kalebwe said their plan is to finish the league programme in November. “It is always exciting to start a new season, everyone is looking forward to a more competitive season. Some players have moved to new teams, so it is quite exciting,” he told Mmegi Sport.
