This season things seems to be going well on the side of the Lesotho basketball giants, Khubetsoana (KTA) All Stars (males' team) as they have been consistent with their winning style since the start of the 2017/2018 Lesotho National Basketball League (NBL). In their first game last month, KTA beat Lesotho National University of Lesotho (NUL) side with 51 points against 36 and last week Wednesday night, KTA was out again to trounce Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT) with 77-51 before they could loss to 47-44 to Khube-State on Saturday. In an interview with Informative Sport after their encounter with LUCT, KTA player coach, Sam Ntsekhe said after failing to defend their championship title last year, they are now back with new mentality even though they are still using the same players. 'We want to take KTA back to the standards where it used to be and I always tell my team mates that-'It's either you win or go home,' revealed Ntsekhe. As one of the teams with most experienced players in the country, Ntsekhe mentioned they are not going to undermine any team in the league because they are aware that all the teams are always eager to win any game they are engaged in. He said the teams had tightened up their squads and it will be a risk to undermine them. Ntsekhe also hailed LUCT for showing some improvements in their game against KTA. 'Their discipline side is getting better and their performance has grown as compared to last seasons and if they can maintain their consistency, there are high chances for them to make it to the top 4 at the end of this season. 'I watched LUCT match against NUL and I discovered how high LUCT winning spirit is, therefore we were prepared for fight and fortunately we managed to beat them,' added Ntsekhe. LUCT is operating without an official coach and Ntsekhe foresees good things once they get one. Meanwhile, this year Lesotho Basketball Association (LBA) Independence Memorial Invitational Tournament 2017 was cancelled after teams did not show interest by not paying their registration fees even after the registration fee was revised and adjusted from M1000 to M300 per team. In this point, Ntsekhe said this is tarnishing the image of the Lesotho basketball community regardless of the motive behind the reluctance of the teams towards the tournament and that there is a lot need to be done to avoid such things. He also pointed that the worst part of the story is that the tournament includes teams from outside the country. LUCT team leader, Sedibo Sebusi agreed that his team is doing well this season and that they are looking forward to reach Top 4.Sebusi disclosed they knew that they were going to lose to KTA but they really did not want to.
