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, which fifth this season, 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 healthy position in the race for the regular season title or at least finish in the four playoff spots.
Last season, APR finished on third position, behind Espoir and KBC, while CSK finished in fourth position.
“It a crucial game as far as our ambitions for the season are concerned, so we need to win this game to climb up the table and close the gap on the top team vying for the title,” Kamanzi said on Thursday.
While his counterpart, Cliff Owuor said, “We know we are facing a strong team but for me, it is better to play against the best teams, it helps you know you’re capable of, so bright it on.”
The league will continue on Saturday, when Jean Bahufite’s Espoir will be taking on University of Rwanda College of Education at Kimisagara youth sports center, seeking to extend their unbeaten record in regular league season for over two seasons.
