Oct. 19 (Bloomberg) -- The National Basketball Association and its players union ended two days of federally mediated talks today, and plan to resume negotiations tomorrow.

Representatives of the two sides met for more than 24 hours over the past two days under the direction of George Cohen, head of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service.

“Everyone is extremely focused on the core issues, the difficult issues that confront them,” Cohen said today at a news conference at a New York hotel. The two sides have agreed to a gag order imposed by Cohen.

The NBA’s lockout of players is in its 111th day. It has been nine days since NBA Commissioner David Stern canceled the first two weeks of the season, which was scheduled to begin Nov. 1.
