In preparations for the 2016 ABL season scheduled to tip off on Friday, March 4, 2016, The Stallions have signed on three players who have played in different leagues across the globe.

The players are Kelechi Anuna, Hassan Adams and Akintunde Moses.

Kelechi has played for the Nigeria national team and with clubs in top leagues in Tunisia, Slovakia, Egypt, Venezuela and most recently Dominican Republic.

Kelechi is happy to be back in the country and excited about the opportunity to be a part of the league.

Hassan was drafted in the NBA in 2006 after playing his college basketball as an Arizona Wildcat in University of Arizona.

He has played with NBA clubs including New Jersey Nets (Now Brooklyn Nets) and Toronto Raptors. He has also played in Philippine (Rain or Shine Elasto Painters) and Singapore (Singapore Slingers). He plans to bring this experience to bear as he joins Stallions.

US-based Akintunde Moses played with the El Shams Basketball Club. He played college basketball with the Three Rivers Community College and was at Mullen All-Star Basketball Camp.

He is a tenacious rebounder and finishes around the basket with authority. We should expect this from him as he joins the ABL.

The maiden season of the African Basketball League which was earlier scheduled for Sunday, January 31, 2016 was postponed to allow the league management finalise agreement with all players and to ensure that all game centers are fully ready.

The first game will be held on March 4th, 2016 at Landmark Event Center in Lagos.

The ABL is proudly supported by Cornerstone Insurance, Wakanow, Radisson Blu and Union Bank.
