Neosasa tactician Miller Victor while speaking after the match said their game plan was destroyed after their point guard Lameck Numuni suffered an ankle injury.
“This had a heavy impact on our game. We had a problem in the offensive aspect of the game and also his absence was felt in the defence.” Miller said.
Neo Sasa started the match stronger in the first quarter taking an early lead of 10 points against Barclays’ 8.Howevey, they slumped in the 2nd quarter where they were thrashed 19 – 8 to put the total points at 27 – 18 in favor of Barclays.

The bankers’ finished off what they had started and in the last quarter they triumphed again but with a close range this time round the quarter ending 18 – 16 with Neosasa trailing.
Neosasa will play against Dolphins on Sunday and their coach MillerVictor hopes to recover. He also blamed the loss to officiating,
