Patriots Basketball Club will look to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Basketball Africa League (BAL) with a win over Madagascar’s GNBC on Wednesday, May 19. 

The 2019/20 league champions will be hoping to build on the form they showcased in their first match of the competition against Nigeria’s Rivers Hoopers. 

A win against GNBC will be enough for Patriots to advance the quarter-finals of the lucrative continental competition. 

It is not the first time the two teams will be playing against each other. In 2019, Patriots wrapped up their qualification campaign with an emphatic 94-63 victory over GNBC. 

Speaking to Times Sport, Dieudonne Ndizeye, Patriots’ small-forward sounded optimistic of winning the match. 

“We won our first game, which boosted the confidence in the team and we are confident we can repeat the same performance,” he said.

Ndizeye contributed 13 points in Patriots’ first match where they defeated Rivers Hoopers 83-60 points.

Meanwhile, in Group C, Senegal’s AS Douanes return to action on Wednesday against Mozambique’s Ferroviário de Maputo, while GSP will take on Zamalek. By Damas Sikubwabo, New Times
