NUR teams back in Hoops league

The University of Rwanda’s College of Humanities and Arts (formerly the National University of Rwanda) has plans of fielding again their teams in the upcoming men and women national basketball league.


The NUR teams will come back alongside a Rubavu-based men side, according to the Rwanda Basketball Federation.


The leagues are expected to resume next month. The National University of Rwanda had teams in both the men and women leagues but withdrew them before the start of last season citing financial constraints.


“They have shown interest in featuring come next season,” Ferwaba secretary general Richard Mutabazi told the media.


The federation’s general assembly is set to meet on January 19, among others, to decide on the entry of the three teams. The meeting will also discuss the calendar of the year 2014, sponsorship and legal status for league clubs.
