Namibia Basketball School League Season Officially Closes

13 November 2019

The Namibia Basketball School League (NBSL), with the assistance of the Namibia Basketball Federation (NBF), hosted the closing ceremony of the 2019 basketball season in Windhoek on Friday.

The official closing ceremony of the league began with the first All Star games at the Basketball Artist School Foundation, with both the male and female Under-16 and 19 NBSL players competing.

NBSL also hosted its annual awards at the Dawid Bezuidenhout High School hall on Saturday, according to a media statement availed to Nampa.

Anthony Auchab, who represented the Khomas Basketball Association (KBA), said he was happy to see the players getting opportunities that the older players never had.

"The men's and women's leagues are eager to have the youngsters progress to the KBA because of all the clear talent and skill the coaches are grooming," he said.

NBSL director Mantinus Amukhosi encouraged the parents to keep supporting their children who take part in sports.
