WATCH out for the young Mighty Mights teams when they take to the courts in this weekend's National Basketball Club Championships.The Raiwaqa-based team consist of upcoming basketball players from the area with an average age of 16 and the oldest is 18. Mighty Mights coach Saula Koroi said they had been training very hard in the last few weeks as they try to improve on their play before tournament starts."This team is very young and most of my players were in form four last year," Koroi said. Koroi said his young team was lucky to be training with other top teams in Raiwaqa as they prepare for the three-day tournament. "Every afternoon the boys play matches with Boston and other clubs from Raiwaqa who will also be participating in the club championships," Koroi said. "I believe my boys have learnt a lot and gained valuable experience during these training matches."Koroi said they were not going to predict anything but would do their talking in the court."We have a lot of good teams that will be playing in this tournament and we have a lot of respect for the opposition." "I know all other teams have been preparing well and I believe this will be a very tough tournament," Koroi said. Koroi said the first match was expected to be played at 5:30pm tomorrow at the Eds Court in Raiwaqa. "The tournament will continue on Friday starting at 5:30pm while Saturday will be a whole day of competition."Koroi confirmed they have managed to secure a sponsor for this tournament but the final details are to be confirmed before any announcement is made.
