LESOTHO : Explosive basketball fixtures

By Nthako Majoro

MASERU- Fireworks are expected tomorrow when the National Basketball League log-leaders Shines, face second and third-placed KTA All Stars and Lerotholi Polytechnic respectively at the Lerotholi Polytechnic Grounds.
Shines lead the nine-team league with 23 points from12 matches, while All Stars and Lerotholi both have 22 points from 12 and 14 games, respectively.
According to the Lesotho Basketball Association spokesperson, Modupe Ratšolo, Saturday’s fixtures could decide the 2011/12 champions, albeit still with four matches to go for most teams.
“The weekend games are probably going to decide this season’s champion. The difference between these three teams is just one point, and surely each one of them is bracing for war,” said Ratšolo.
In addition to the two big games, there would be other matches involving Lerotholi Polytechnic and KTA All Stars at the same venue, on the same day.
“LP will also play Lesedi, while All Stars lock horns with Mafokotsane Slammers. Rovers also play Lesedi, whilst Roma Boys face Bashana Baheso, all at the same venue on the same day,” Rantšo said.
Rantšo added: “The competition is very tight for this year’s title and a Top 4 finish. And you can see it is going to be a grand finale.”
