Pillars qualify for playoff semis

14 July 2014, 16:20Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Kano Pillars have qualified for the semifinals of the 2013/2014 DStv Premier Basketball Playoff after beating Plateau Peaks 83-53 in their second game played on Monday.

Pillars, who are the defending champions, won their first game on Sunday against Union Bank.

In Monday’s game, Pillars showed superiority as they dominated all through the encounter, with the first quarter finishing 20-12 in favour of the coach Sani Ahmed side.

Peaks continued to falter as they went a distance 22 points to see the second quarter end 43-21.

Pillars extended their lead in the third quarter with a 71-34 finish at the end, and wrapped it with the final score at 93-53 to record their second consecutive win and consequently qualify for the semifinals, despite having a game in hand against Dodan Warriors on Tuesday.

However, Plateau Peaks have now crashed out of the tournament after failing to win any of their first two games.
