Local basketballers have ‘stepped up their game’ – Agard
…as practice intensifies for CBC
National Men’s Basketball Coach Mark Agard says the Guyana players continue to give a good account of themselves which he attributes to the added momentum of having several overseas-based players on the team, as preparations move apace for the Caribbean Basketball Championship 2014.
“This is one of Guyana’s best teams and hopefully we can return with the championship. I anticipate that the team will be called over the weekend,” he told Stabroek Sport.
“The local game has improved with the introduction of the overseas players. Basketball can continue to reach to this level, what we don’t have is the corporate support…We have players that are well-suited to the open court game and going forward we will be working on the defensive end.”
