They have now won six and lost three times in the regular season – Their losses came against Old Tymers, Nkumba Marines and Charging Rhino.

Najja who also doubles as the Nam Blazers point guard, added: “It’s so far not bad, but I think we need to work more on our man to man offense.”

Next on their menu is a clash with Bush court who have won only twice from nine games.

“We just want to make playoffs and anything can happen from thereafter.”
