KL qualify for semis with better head-to-head record

KUALA LUMPUR: Hosts Kuala Lumpur made it to the semi-finals despite suffering a humiliating loss in their final men’s Division One preliminary round match of the Agong Cup National Basketball Championship.

The City side went down 100-60 to Police at the Maba Stadium on Wednesday, but scraped through by virtue of finishing fourth in the six-team division. KL were level with Selangor with two wins each, but they qualified for the last four with a better head-to-head record against their Klang Valley rivals.

KL will meet defending champions Malacca for a place in the final. The other semi-final is between second-placed Police and third-placed Sarawak.

In the women’s Division One, KL will meet Selangor in the semi-finals. Defending champions Johor will take on Malacca in the other semi-final.
