Rivers Hoopers head coach Ogoh Odaudu has expressed confidence in his team’s chances of making it to the single-elimination playoffs of the Basketball Africa League (BAL) in Kigali, Rwanda.
Hoopers were drawn alongside Patriots, Ferroviario de Maputo, US Monastir, Forces Armees et Police Basketball (FAP) and Zamalek in the Nile Conference of the BAL.
Reacting to the draw, Odaudu said: “It is a very difficult Conference as a matter of fact there is no Conference that is easy. Every game is going to be competitive .Everybody has to do their work extra there is no team you would say is a write off.”
“I feel very confident we can pick one or two games also coupled with the fact that we are going to be playing two of our home games in front of our fans so it gives us an added advantage. Hopefully we can sneak our way into the knock out stages.”
