With heavy down pour in Lagos on Saturday, thunder struck twice at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium in Lagos as the Savannah Conference All Stars won their 2nd straight DStv Premier Basketball league All-Star game, with a flamboyant display of long range shots, alley hoops and high octane slam dunks.
Powered by reigning All Star MVP Abubakar Usman?s 31 points off seven, 3 points shot and Kano Pillars team mate Ibrahim Yusuf?s 18 points including 4 from behind the arc, the Savannah conference All Stars put up a shooting clinic on their way to a 102-66 points victory over the Atlantic conference All Star team.
