Stormers ready for KPA test
Stormers coach Abel Nson is confident his side has what it takes to take down highflying Kenya Ports Authority next weekend when they clash at the Nyayo Stadium Gymnasium in a Kenya Basketball Federation women’s league.
Nson says his charges will be inspired by their weekend victory over KU Oryx and will rely on their perimeter shooting that proved instrumental last weekend.
“We will have intense training this week as we prepare for KPA. We have our work cut out and we know what we must do to overcome them for they are one of the best teams in the league even historically.
“We want to be at our best so that we can take them on comfortably and emerge victorious.”
He has singled out defending champions Equity Hawks as the team to beat this term and giving special mentions to the Dockers and Zetech University as the other sides that pose a serious threat to their title challenge.
Elsewhere Umoja coach Kevin Sunguti says his charges are warming up for the season after defeating bitter rivals EMYBA 80-61 on Sunday.
Their win ended their poor start to the season and Sunguti is confident they will only get better.
“Previously we had problems with our preparations because many of our players have found it difficult to attend training sessions consistently.
The past one week everyone trained and you can see from today’s match that we have a good team.”
Next up for them are struggling University of Nairobi Terror on Saturday at the Nyayo Stadium Gymnasium.
