While the first BAL season has been pushed back due to the coronavirus outbreak, some teams are still playing in their national competitions. Zamalek from Egypt has been eliminated in the Egyptian playoffs, as the team lost in the semifinals. Al-Ittihad was too strong, finishing the series on March 12th: 3-0.
In the third game, Al-Ittihad won once again, this time with a score of 109-97. In the Finals of Egypt, the team will face either Al Alhy or Al Gezira (the score is now 2-1). This would mean one of these three teams will qualify directly for the 2021 BAL season. The champions of the Egyptian Superleague have a direct spot into the competition.
