Eldonets head coach Maurice Ouma will be chasing double wins as he prepares to open the Kenya Basketball Federation (KBF) league this weekend.
The lanky Ouma said he has been preparing, the only Eldoret based club well ahead of the season opener.
The double header weekend will be taking on Strathmore University on Saturday before playing Kenyatta University on Sunday at the Nyayo National Stadium gymnasium.
He said they are keen to improve on their performance unlike last season, where they were eliminated in the play-offs by Thunder.
“This time, we are well prepared and the new signings will play a critical role to ensure we get good results at the end of the season,” said Ouma.
Ouma, who also serves as Uasin Gishu KBF chairman, said they have recruited Humphrey Lesile, Anthony Mukhebi, Dennis Omache, Philip Omondi, Alvin Mulupi and Collins Wekesa to beef up his squad with majority coming from universities.
“The main reason for beefing up the squad is to ensure we make remarkable improvement in the league this season. Our target is to ensure we finish among the top clubs,” said Ouma.
