CERCLE SPORTIF de Kigali (CSK) head coach Janvier Kamanzi is keen to win the national basketball league game against APR at Cercle Sportif de Kigali court in Rugunga.
The 2011 league champions, host the second-placed APR seeking to register their fifth win of the campaign in six games. APR are in second position with 13 points, one behind reigning champions Espoir from seven games.
Kamanzi knows a win will keep his team in a good position for the regular season title or at least to finish in the four playoff spots.
Last season, APR finished in third position, behind Espoir and KBC, while CSK finished in fourth position.
“It’s a crucial game as far as our ambitions for the season are concerned. We need to win this game to climb up the table and close the gap on the top team vying for the title,” Kamanzi told Times Sport yesterday.
His counterpart, Cliff Owuor said, “We know we are facing a strong team, but it is better to play against the best teams. It helps you know what you’re capable of.”
The league will continue on Saturday, when Jean Bahufite’s Espoir take on University of Rwanda College of Education at Kimisagara youth sports centre, seeking to extend their unbeaten record in regular league season for over two seasons.
