Rwanda: Coach Challenges Junior Hoops Team

BASKETBALL U-18 national boys team coach Nenad Amanovic has challenged his players to make their debut in the African U-18 Basketball championships memorable by posting impressive displays.
The team left for Maputo-Mozambique on Sunday evening for the competition that runs from August 16-25.
"It will not be easy for the players because they are only making their first appearance but they need not to use that as an excuse, but rather try to perform to the best of their ability, which I'm sure they are capable of," Amanovic said before the team's departure.
Over 20 teams including Egypt, Tunisia, and Nigeria will take part in the two-week tournament, and Rwanda Basketball Federation Secretary General Richard Mutabazi thinks the competition will give them a good measure of the country's standing against the rest of the continent in terms of hoops youth development.
Rwanda qualified for the continental championship after defeating Kenya in two-nation Zone V qualifiers played in Kigali last month.
