Henry Mwinuka, the head coach of Rwanda Energy Group (REG) basketball club, has urged his players to stay focused on winning the 2019/2020 BK Basketball National League title despite the long layoff due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Speaking to Times Sport on Thursday, Mwinuka said that his team's ultimate goal this season remained to win the league title, challenging the players that "nothing should stop us, not even the pandemic!"
"All my players are in good fitness shape, the lockdown and league suspension did not stop them from training - we just changed how we trained," said the Tanzania-born tactician.
REG have not won the league title since 2017 when they made history of clinching the championship in their maiden season (2016/2017) in the league.
Once the league restarts, teams are expected to play under a tight schedule where they will each have two to three games a week.
