Kenya Basketball Federation men's Premier League leaders Blades will start as favourites against World Hope in their fixture at United States International University of Africa out door courts on Saturday from 4.30pm.

Blades made a strong start in the second leg winning two consecutive matches last weekend to climb to the top of the 11-team table.

They beat Trailblazers 57-41 and Kenya College of Accountancy-University 55-49 to increase their points tally to 21. Blades have so far won nine matches and lost three.

The men to watch at Blades are forward Fidel Okoth, Daryl Omondi and Cliff Alela.

Debutantes World Hope are bottom of the table with just one win and eight losses.

Their coach George Namake will need a miracle to end Blades’ impressive winning streak.
