RWANDA : Hoops league start moved, preseason tourney set for Nov 13

Rwanda Basketball Federation (FERWABA) has postponed the start of the 2015/2016 basketball season from November 14 to 27 with the preseason tournament slated for November 13-22.
The general assembly that sat late September at the FERWABA headquarters at Amahoro stadium, had initially scheduled the league to begin on November 14 but due to activities such as the referees clinic, a workshop for coaches/team managers and the preseason tournament, it was postponed.
The refresher clinic for referees is set for November 6-8, the coaches’ and team managers’ workshop will take place on November 8 before the annual preseason competition in both the men and women’s categories running from November 13 to 22.
“We found it very important to move forward the championship start to avoid interference. All league sides have been notified. We are expecting a more competitive and neatly organized league this season. All eyes are on who will be the next champions,” Mutabazi told Times Sport.
In separate interviews with Times Sport, coach Bob Ngoga of Cercle Sportif de Kigali (CSK), trainer Cyrille Kalima of Patriots and IPRC-South coach Didier Bineza insisted their respective clubs are ready and their top target is to challenge for the title.
Jean Bahufite’s Espoir are holders of the preseason and league titles while Ubumwe BBC and APR are the defending champions of the preseason and league crowns in women’s category respectively.
