The Copperbelt Basketball Association (CBA) has nullified the 20-0 walkover result awarded to Mufulira Magnets over Ndola Takers.
Magnets were added the walkover win after Takers failed to show up for Men’s Super League game in Kalulushi over the weekend.
CBA President Andrew Nyirenda said the result was nullified because of communication mix up and the game will be played later.
“When the Fixtures Secretary was sending out fixtures, he did not use our official communication via email. He sent the fixture via a whatsapp group and the representative for Ndola Takers by then was not on the group. Ndola Takers thought they were on bye,” Nyirenda said.
Meanwhile, champions Lunga Bullets’s good run in the league has ended following a defeat to Kansanshi Panthers.
Kansanshi edged Lunga 66-60 in a tightly contested game played at Kalulushi Tennis Club.
Kansanshi further beat I.C Tigers 76-40 to record two straight wins within 24 hours.
In the Famine League, Champions Sparks Storm thumped SlumsDunk Academy 91-14 and Roan Mystic lost 43-16 to CEC Queens.
