Rwanda basketball national team is scheduled to play a friendly game against Africa’s powerhouse Angola either in May or June, head coach Moise Mutokambali has told Times Sport.

The match will be to prepare the team for the Afro basketball championship which is slated to run from 15-26 June 2013 in Ivory Coast.

“We are still in negotiations with the Angolan (basketball) federation but until now nothing has been agreed,” he revealed on Tuesday.

He added, “The players have been occupied with the national league, which has reached the Playoffs final, nevertheless, we need to engage them in some international games as we prepare for the continental tournament.”

Rwanda qualified for the Afro basketball championship after finishing as runners-up to Egypt at the Zone V qualifier held in Tanzania in January.
