Kenya to return to AfroBasket in 27 years

NAIROBI (Kenya) – Kenya coach Cliff Owuor is pleased with the off-court training of his players as they prepare individually for the FIBA AfroBasket 2021 qualifiers. The Morans tactician revealed that he is keenly following the progress of his players who are based in the diaspora ahead of the championships slated for November. He said he has introduced a new training schedule for his players – both local and abroad-after an online meeting he conducted with them a few days ago. The response, he said, is good going by the feedback he received.

“I have assigned them workouts via video, after completion, they will send it back to me for assessment and advice after which we will see how it goes. I want everyone to be fully fit when the team finally assembles for training,”Owuor told

Owuor said he wants to make a mark in the qualifiers and is constantly exploring Kenya’s Group B opponents Angola, Mozambique and Senegal. He remains optimistic Kenya have a strong chance to return to the continental show after a 27-year hiatus.
