Nigeria: Plateau Rocks Coach Laments Poor Funding of Club

The Chief Coach of Plateau Rocks, a female basketball team, Alex Guwan, yesterday decried the current state of neglect being experienced by the team because of poor funding by the Plateau government.
Guwan said in an interview in Jos that the team had been surviving on the goodwill of some well-meaning individuals in the state.
He added that the rough spell being experienced by the club had not in any way deterred it from performing well in the ongoing season.
"We have qualified for the final phase of the Zenith Bank female basketball tournament, slated for June in Lagos, after we emerged in the last eight in Asaba.
"I don't know how we would have made it this far, if not for people who have interest in the game.
"I remember when we were going for the other two phases in Abuja and Asaba, we had to source for money from individuals.
"We are using this medium to appeal to the state government to release money to the team, to help us to participate well in the tournament," he said.
The Chief Coach further said that the team had been given a one-week break for the players to rest after the strenuous competition.
