The journey started with lots of uncertainty considering that it will be the first time to compete at the continental level but as we progressed clarity started setting in.
As soon as we returned from the qualification game, we rolled out plans on how to confront the challenge ahead of us. In spite limited resources, we took it upon ourselves to commence the implementation of our Africa Basketball League practice plan.
Our first and appreciated surprise was the breaking news of AFA sponsorship. The news really brightened things up within our camp, we were all excited and efforts doubled.
To further motivate the team, yesterday we were gifted with a victory against our first opponent (BC Terreur of DR Congo). The game was a very competitive one, we played our hearts out to clinch our first win.
At the moment, the team spirit is high as we go head on with ES Rades of Tunisia in few hours time and Elan sportif of Benin (host) tomorrow. Based on the scouting reports available to us, both teams are very strong with lots of experienced players.
It a new dawn for the Defenders, we are ready for the fights and we assured all our loyal fans that we will not disappoint them.
