Dar es Salaam Regional Basketball Association (RBA) League
DTB Basketball team is once again taking part in elite Basketball league - The Dar es Salaam Regional Basketball Association (RBA) League â€“ 2021 season.
The RBA league which is no doubt, the most coveted Basketball League in Tanzania, has proved to be very competitive after the emergence of new teams with array of talents in ball handling, rebounding, outside shooting and perimeter dominance. This year, RBA League is evenly divided in 2 groups or conferences of East and West each all made - up of 8 and 7 teams respectively.
DTB Basketball team is placed in Eastern Conference alongside other the Basketball powerhouses of Savio, Kurasini Heat, Chui, Oilers, Ukonga Warriors, Vijana City Bulls and Mgulani JKT. The Western conference teams are ABC, Pazi, JKT, Mchenga, UDSM Outsiders, Jogoo and Ukonga Kings.
DTB team is competing in the RBA league for the second season running after narrowly failing to qualify for play-off berth last year. Led by point guard - Alex Mbwana, team DTB won its first 3 season opening games against Oilers (63 â€“ 43), Vijana City Bulls (60 â€“ 43) and Ukonga Warriors (76 â€“ 56) before falling down to the mighty Savio (61 â€“ 45) and Kurasini Heats by half a basket (78 â€“ 77) in a hotly contested game.
Team DTB in its second season in RBA league, still has a chance of qualifying for the RBA playoffs should they win 2 of the remaining 3 matches in the regular season against Chui and Mgulani JKT.
The future for DTB Basketball team looks bright despite the back to back losses against Savio and Kurasini Heats in the RBA league. The team is comprised of young players with capability to improve and develop into a championship team.
