First Bank Basketball Club of Lagos has dominated the on-going FIBA-Africa Zone Three Club Championship in Lome, Togo, because of the excellent bonding of the players, two top stars of the club, Chioma Udeaja and Nkechi Akashile, has said.
Udeaja, who is also the captain of the team, believes the players have played more as a team because they have been able to carry out their coaches’ instruction during games, adding that the camping they had before the competition started also helped the players understand themselves more.
“It was good we had the camping because it allowed the players to get used to each other, especially the new ones.
