Bokamoso South seek to continue good run

Maseru   Attacking with a high tempo, running and gunning, pace as well as hard pressing are some of the qualities the youthful Bokamoso South possess.

It is these attributes that propelled the upstart club to the top of the National Basketball League (NBL) in the first round and Bokamoso South are aiming to continue their good run when the second round begins this weekend.

The log leaders lost one game in the first round and their coach Faku Masupha says the loss helped his players to refocus on their game.

He stressed that it is important for Bokamoso South to maintain their momentum as they seek to secure a playoff spot. “Our preparations for the new season started in winter and we had great wins,” Masupha said.

“What we are going to do in the second round is to continue with our game. Running and gunning is our culture as Bokamoso. We press the opponents, we attack in high tempo and we will not compromise that,” said a charged up Masupha.
He added: “We are a very young team; however, we do have people who are helping the players to focus, to keep their heads up. Normally after winning big matches players get excited and they don’t come to training but we have to maintain our standards and keep our culture.”
Masupha continued that the fact they have been winning games will not go to their heads.

While other teams enjoyed their Christmas break, Masupha said Bokamoso South were hard at work preparing in a camp in Maputsoe. He said the club is looking to match international standards of performance.

In December, Bokamoso South were crowned champions of the invitational Sprite Summer Slam Charity Tournament which featured teams from South Africa and Swaziland.
“A lot of people do not understand our style of play,” Masupha said.

“We don’t only play to win local matches but we are also looking to be on par with international standards which is why we beat South African teams competitively. We have still not perfected what we want but we are getting there.”
