The visiting AND1 basketball team from the United States encounter Dar es Salaam All Stars in a friendly match at the National Indoor Stadium today.
The match is expected to be a thriller based on the fact that the hosts are composed of key players from Dar es Salaam clubs while AND 1 will be all out to prove their basketball supremacy. The visitors are well known for high energy action style.
The deep rooted American street basketball team which arrived in the country on Wednesday was last evening expected to play Arusha All Stars at the Sheikh Amri Abeid Stadium. The team’s first game with Mwanza All Stars at CCM Kirumba was on Friday postponed because of a heavy downpour.
The team is in the country for a series of matches under the aid of Coca-Cola, through Sprite basketball youth programs aimed at developing the game in Tanzania.
This is the second time that the team is visiting the country following their maiden trip last year when they hit Dar All Stars 110-69 at the Leaders Club.
