The second edition of the Olumide Oyedeji Inter-Collegiate Basketball Championship will hold from Jan. 13 to Jan. 21 in Lagos.

The invitational basketball tournament, which will be hosted by the University of Lagos at the Indoor Sports Hall of its Sports Complex, will feature 10 tertiary institutions from Nigeria and Ghana.

The competition is one of the programmes of the Olumide Oyedeji Youth Foundation, which was established to provide a unifying platform where all tertiary institutions can play competitive basketball.

Other objectives of the competition include determining the overall best institution and also to bridge the gap between institutional and professional basketball.

The maiden edition was held in September 2015 at the Indoor Sports Hall of the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, with the Federal University of Technology, Minna emerging as champions.

The second edition will have a series of events on the sidelines, such as the Media Day/Photo Session, the 3-Points Shootout and the Slam Dunk Contest.

A press conference is billed for the next few days in relation to the competition.

At the press conference, the participating teams would be officially announced and drawn into groups, while their jerseys would be unveiled.
