Sunday
Gisenyi vs UGB
UR- Huye vs APR
30-Plus vs Espoir
Espoir will go top of the national basketball league table standings if they win their two games this weekend against IPRC and 30-Plus today and tomorrow respectively.
The league and playoffs defending champions will however face an on-form league’s new entrants IPRC- Kicukiro today at Amahoro Indoor stadium, starting at 4pm in a game that promises to be a real spectacle.
Much as Jean Bahufite’s side will go into the games as overwhelming favourites, this game could go either way as fourth-placed IPRC-Kicukiro are determined to book a place in the playoffs.
Espoir are currently ranked second behind APR but have played three games less. They have 26 points from 13 matches, while APR have 27 from 16 matches.
“We want to win both games, and if it happens then we will be in line for the third consecutive league title. IPRC will pose the biggest threat . They are a solid side and have shown consistency,” Bahufite told Saturday Sport yesterday.
His counterpart of IPRC-Kicukiro Albert Buhake said, “We are ready and I believe we can upset  the best team in the league. Beating them would be a fantastic achievement for us.”
