Betway Power welcome basketball league resumption

There will finally be national basketball league action this year following an announcement by domestic governing body Fuba.
According to information released on the federation’s social media accounts, league resumption has been set for April 02 across all divisions.
This is after the entire 2020 season was wiped out because of restrictions imposed by the government and caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The news came as relief to many stakeholders including five-time champions Betway Power.
“At Least we are making way to normality," veteran Betway Power forward Isaac Afidra noted when asked about the latest developments.
"You have to start somewhere. You can't wait for everyone and six weeks' notice is good enough,” Afidra added.
His views were seconded by many of the other clubs who have similarly been itching to get going.
“It's about time the league returned," opined UCU head coach Nicholas Natuhereza.
"Considering the circumstances the format is okay. We can't afford to have no basketball for two years,” he added.
Domestic basketball governing body Fuba announced the resumption of leagues on April 02 with completion of player registration expected by March 15.
Fuba also revealed the league will have a one round regular season format before proceeding to the playoffs.
The playoffs will be decided by best of three games in the quarterfinal and semi-finals while the finals will be decided by the best of five.
“It will probably be tough for everyone but I believe we can pull this off. Lucky for us this coincides with school returning.
"Management will have to figure something out for sure,” added Natuhereza who expects many of his university players to have returned by the time the league tips off.
There will however be no fans because of covid-19 restrictions with games set to be streamed on Fuba social media platforms.
“League resumption is good for us in the basketball fraternity," Stephen Nyeko the Nam Blazers coach noted.
"If we don’t play, we risk losing sponsors and players. It’s not the best of formats but basing on the current situations."
"I think it's ok .it’s understandable and justifiable to have basketball resume under the laid down guidelines,” Nyeko summed up the situation.
Start date 02 April 2021
One round regular season
Playoffs, Quarter & semis = Best of 3 Playoffs finals = best of 5.
No fans as per SOPs but all games will be streamed live.
