Rwanda : Rwanda’s U-18 hoops team are set start Zone five Preps

Thirty players national basketball team players will this week get involved in intensive training in preparation for the Zone five qualifiers scheduled to be held in Kigali from July 17-22, 2012.
The new basketball federation team led by Secretary General Richard Mutabazi confirmed the development on Thursday.
The team will train three times a day starting this Friday at Amahoro indoor stadium until mid June when they enter into a two-week residential camp to fine tune ahead of the tournament’s kick off.
“Most of the players who will compose the national team are mainly students from local clubs but the team will as well be boasted by the experienced players who formed part of the 2010 U-18 team and are now pursuing their careers in the U.S,”
The week long competition will attract eight teams which include Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia and Burundi. The tourney will also feature a women’s competition.

Rwanda finished in 6th position last time around despite being hosts but with Egypt having qualified Coach Nenad Amanovic will fancy his team’s chances.
