The Women’s League play-offs have been suspended with immediate effect by the Malta Basketball Association following an appeal lodged by Depiro BC.
Depiro BC are contesting the decision taken by the MBA Protest Board which had found Starlites guilty of fielding an ineligible player in their match against Caffe Moak Luxol and awarded the Violets a 20-0 win.
“The Malta Basketball Association has decided to, with immediate effect, suspend the start of the MAPFRE MSV Life Women League play-offs, originally scheduled to commence this evening Thursday 12th April,” the statement said.
“This suspension is coming into effect due to the fact that Depiro Basketball Club are contesting the Protest Board Decision taken on 20th March, re the game Caffe Moak Luxol vs Starlites, and thus the matter will now be put forth for arbitration proceedings in the coming days.
“The 2018 Women League play-offs are then expected to tip-off following the outcome of the same arbitration proceedings.”
