LBA tournament voting ends tomorrow

MASERU – Voting for the Lesotho Basketball Association’s (LBA) 2017 All Star tournament closes on Friday.
The unique competition sees local basketball fanatics in complete control of the selection of participants.
Fans can vote for their favourite players to be part of ‘Team Blue’ or ‘Team Green’ in both the men’s and women’s sections.
A player will be part of either team depending on the number of votes they accumulate.

The top 12 players from each team will then face off on August 26 at the Lehakoe Recreation Centre.
According to LBA public relations officer, Mookho Ntebe, the tournament is meant to motivate young prospects and allow players to connect and know each other.

Ntebe added that the association has a plan to start a national team that will represent Lesotho at international tournaments in future.
This All Star tournament is the first step in bringing players together, she said.

“This tournament is meant to motivate the players, besides that, we always have tournaments with teams competing against one another but we have really not come together to get to know each other.

We also want to start a national team and this is a way to bring the players together,” she said.
The LBA All Star tournament started in 2015 but was not staged last year.

It is the last competition before the start of the new National Basketball League (NBL) season which is set to begin in the second week of September.
Ntebe said registrations for teams to enter the league ahead of the new season are still open.
