Because of the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country, the Senegalese Basketball League (the Nationale 1) has been suspended. This was announced yesterday after the President of Senegal, Macky Sall, had announced the suspension of all public events.
The league is suspended after the BAL had already been postponed as well. After recommendations by the Senegalese government, the competition decided to postpone the first season of the historic event. AS Douanes from Dakar was supposed to play in the first season while hosting games at the Dakar Arena.
