RWANDA : Giants Resume Title Hunt Against Minnows

by Julius Mbaraga

CSK A, APR, Espoir and reigning champions Marine are all expected to pick up easy wins as the 2008 National basketball league enters week three.
Espoir hope to shake off last Saturday's defeat against APR when they entertain struggling Kigali Institute of Education in an early morning tie at Amahoro.
Rwanda's shooting forward Valery Uwineza will lead the 2004 champions' fight back against KIE who are yet to win a league game this year.
In the other days' games, the 'Indomitable Lions' of APR and last year's beaten finalists, CSK A will be gunning for their third wins of the season when they take on out of sorts United Generation Basketball and Rwanda National University (UNR).
And in Sunday's only fixture, Rusizi will be in for a rough ride when they host defending champions, Marine.
Marine, who also lifted this year's Heroes title after ejecting APR in the final, opened their title defense in superb fashion with a 114-44 victory over KIE.
