The Zimbabwe basketball team has continued with their fine run at the ongoing AfroCan Zone Six tournament after they won their second match against Mozambique on Wednesday. At the end of the tournament, the score line was 91-60.
Its Team captain, Vitalis Chikoko, was once again outstanding as he managed 22 points, 18 rebounds, 8 assists, and 7 blocks.
Chikoko plays in France for Élan Béarnais Pau-Orthez and was also influential in the opening match where he contributed 12 points with Warren Tegama. He got 22 points, which was the highest individual score on Zimbabwe’s scorecard.
However, Zimbabwe coach, Edison Chiware, was delighted by his men’s performance.
Quoting the coach:
“We are, obviously, excited. I still maintain that the lads are putting in a huge effort. And we are happy with what we are seeing. Hopefully, it will continue into the next games.
“I think what we have observed with our team is that we are shooting better than before. Therefore, this really gives us good opportunities because now we are spacing out well.”
