Basketball warning

Emoni Narawa
Friday, April 04, 2014

FORMER national basketball rep Peniasi Kainamoli says the Raiwaqa clubs must be on their toes at the National Easter Basketball Club Championship in Suva.

Twelve men and women's teams have qualified for the Easter event which Kainamoli said would be very competitive.

Raiwaqa ladies champions Dynamic Redz will lead the charge along with Sparks, Lady Birds, Mystics, Golden Bati, Wesley Stripe, Chosen and Iconic in the women's comeptition.

Kainamoli said men's champ Boston White would be a force to be reckoned with.

"I think all the Raiwaqa teams will need to be well prepared for this year's event," he said.

"The competition gets tougher and tougher and they need to lift their preparations to the next level after our Raiwaqa league.

"Boston White have a good team and will be good to go this year."

He said for the ladies, Dynamic Redz and Sparks would need to be on their feet and train hard for the remaining weeks while other teams need to be ready.

The Raiwaqa men's teams that have qualified for the Easter championships include Boston White, Warriors, Bryce, Boston Red, MacPacers and Mighty Mights.

"Warriors, they need to sharpen up because they have been losing to Bryce in our league.

"They have lost three times. They need to pull up their socks."

He added that defending champions Saints and the Western teams should not be left out of the equation.

The Easter Championship will be held at the Vodafone Arena in Laucala.
