NIGERIA : Pillars Sign Five New Players

Kano Pillars Basketball Club has signed-up five new players in preparation for the 2011/2012 DSTV Basketball League scheduled to dunk-off on Feb. 25.

Abdullahi Nasiru, the State Director of Sports, said yesterday in Kano that the players were recruited to strengthen the team.
Nasiru said that the recruitment was one of the measures taken by the club to defend their position as leaders of the Savannah Conference and also excel in the Final Eight.
Kano Pillars placed fifth in the Final Eight of the 2010/2011 DSTV Men's League.
The list of new players include: John Samson from Union Bank; Abubakar Yusuf from Kada Stars; John Idu from Yelwa Hawks; and a foreign player from Togo Hawks of Republic of Togo.
"All of them are training regularly with the rest of the players in camp and they are in good shape for the new season," he said.
Nasiru said that the club had dispensed with the services of Mohammed Idris and Dauda Dauda as part of the restructuring process in the team.
He commended Gov. Rabiu Kwankwaso for releasing funds for the club to prosecute its campaign this season and urged the players not to waiver in winning the league.
Eight teams each will feature in the Atlantic and Savannah Conferences of the DSTV Basketball League which dunks-off simultaneously on February 25.
