HÀ NỘI — Thang Long Warriors confirmed their top position in the Việt Nam Basketball Association League after beating HCM City Wings 84-73 yesterday.
It was the last match of the Wings this season, as they failed to take a berth in the play-offs.
The Warriors, who won their slot a week ago, still have one match against Saigon Heat in the qualification round on Sunday.
The Warrior took the lead with 11 wins and three losses.
The Heat ranked second with a result of nine wins and five defeats.
Hanoi Buffaloes, who also qualified for the play-offs, will host former champions Danang Dragons on their home turf at the Bách Khoa Gymnasium tomorrow. The Dragons failed to defend their title, ranking at the bottom of the tournament by winning only two out of the 14 matches. — VNS
