Giants aim for the better


After narrowly losing to Kings 72-68 last Saturday, Giants Basketball Club will be hoping for a change of fortunes when they face struggling ZB Titans in a Southern Region Basketball League match at the Bulawayo Club for the Disabled tomorrow.

ZB Titans suffered a humiliating 111-35 defeat at the hands of Highlanders last Friday.

Giants have played 11 games, won seven and succumbed to their fourth defeat of the season.

ZB Titans have found the going tough in the league so far with three wins and eight matches lost so far.

They will hope for a good performance from Stanley Gumbo, Aleck Mnkandla, Walter Mabaleka and Daniel Nkomo as they search for their first victory in the second half of the season.

Giants will rely on the new player Walter Tayali who had a good game collecting 23 points against Kings.

They also have player/coach Emmanuel Mukandi and Muchengeti Hamandishe in the team. Abundant Life Christian Centre (ALCC) meet 6ers at the same venue tomorrow a week after beating Oilers 63-53.

They have won nine games and have lost three games up to date.

6ers should be wary of Honest Nguruve, Moses Tigere and Crayton Moyo as they are the key players for ALCC.

On Saturday, high-riding Highlanders take on Kwekwe side Steelers.

Highlanders have been outstanding in the league and have won 12 games since the season started in September last year and lost once. Michael Zvoushe has continued to shine for Highlanders alongside Derrick Chiradza, Stewart Woods, Jordan Davies and Tawanda Mudzudza.

Lionel Smith and Khalid Fazilahmed are also other options for Highlanders.
