Dodan Warriors once again showed champion stuff when they claimed a hard earned 91-77 victory over local rivals, Lagos Islanders.

The Warriors, who are yet to lose a match in the Atlantic Conference of the DStv Premier Basketball League, won the four quarters at 20-14, 44-31, 64-44 and 91-77.

Coach Ahmedu, in a post match chat, admitted that his boys played below expectation. He urged  them to put on their dunking shoes because the race for the title has just begun.

“Since we won our first four games, my boys thought the league has been won but I have just told them that since they are the target, having not lost any match, they need to work harder to remain at the top,” he said.

“Basketball is a cruel sport. Even if you are leading with only 3 minutes to go with 20 points, it is not over.”

He said what kept them going was that the boys had been together in camp, sleeping, eating and training together.

He promised the players additional bonus if they could win the remaining four matches left, even as they face Islanders in the return leg next Sunday.

Results from other matches played at the weekend show Royal Hoopers defeating Comets 65-52 to maintain the second position at the Conference, while Police Machine team humiliated last year’s final eighth runner-up, Union Bank by 64-56.
