The Basketball African League (BAL) was founded in 2019, but due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the season was postponed. The professional league is a joint effort between global organisations National Basketball Association (NBA) and FIBA with lucrative sponsorships from Nike, Air Jordan and Pepsi. Games will be live-streamed and also shown on top American Sports Networks.
Here are some of Mylo’s highlights from his time here with the University of Westminster. We wish him all the best for his debut this upcoming Tuesday 18th August 2021 vs Petro De Luanda (5:30pm, GMT+2, Kigali, Rwanda).
