JKT then regrouped to take control of the game in the next quarter to lead 19-11 and the outfit did not look back thereafter, leading 18-6 and 19-10 in the third and fourth quarters respectively.

Experienced player, Frank Simkoko, registered 18 points to lead JKT to the win. Isaack Mwamsope scored 15 points and Himid Choka nine points for the team.

Emmanuel Erick and Neville Sita scored 15 and 10 points respectively for Mgulani.

The league's defending champions in the men's category, Savio, are leading the pack, with Vijana positioned second.
