As teams in the Atlantic Conference of the Nigeria Women Basketball League know their fate for the national finals soon, action is expected to begin today in the Savannah Conference where 16 teams will be on parade.

The Savannah Conference, just like the Atlantic, is expected to produce eight finalist for the national finals sponsored by Zenith Bank Plc.

The Nigeria Basketball Federation chooses this qualification format to further strengthen the elite women basketball league, which has been under the sponsorship of the bank in the past two decades.

First Bank of Lagos, Sunshine Queens of Akure, IGP Queens, MFM, First Deep Water, Bayelsa Blue Whales, Delta Force of Asaba and Dolphins are the eight teams that secured their places in the Zenith Women Basketball finals for the 2023 edition.
