Police Baton ready to be brutal
Lagos-based basketball club, Police Baton are ready to upset the apple cart when the DStv Premier Basketball League Final 8 play-off starts this Saturday.
Head coach of Baton, Mark Balogun believes that the pressure will be on the big teams.
"No doubt we are regarded as outsiders ahead of the play-off and we can't argue against that. It takes a lot of pressure off us. But we are prepared for the play-off and I am confident this team can do well," he said.
"When the regular season tipped off we were given little chance to reach this stage. But we are here now and we will do our best to ruffle our opponents."
The Police Baton qualified as one of the four teams from the Atlantic Conference.
Defending champions, Royal Hoopers, Dodan Warriors and Islanders are the other teams from the Atlantic Conference.
Kano Pillars, Yelwa Hawks, Niger Potters and Kada Stars complete the Final 8 from the Savannah Conference.
Dodan Warriors and Kano Pillars are the only teams that finished the regular season on an unbeaten streak.
