NBBF Men’s Premier League: Police ready to ‘arrest’ Raptors

Head Coach of Police Batons of Lagos, Dike Dominic is targeting a much needed victory against fellow Lagos team, Raptors when they meet tomorrow.

Speaking ahead of the all-important clash at the ongoing Nigeria Basketball Federation organized Men’s Premier Basketball League, he said picking the two points at stake is top on their target.

Less than 24 hours to their game set to hold at the Indoor Sports Hall of the Akure Township stadium, Dominic said his team will go all out. 

“We will go all out and most especially concentrate on our defense and we are sure that the offense will come naturally.

“If we do the right thing with the calibre of players at our disposal, we are sure of getting our third win.”

After two wins in four games, Dominic described his team’s performance as average with more room for improvement.

“Average performance from my boys but I trust them to step up when it matters most because we seem to be improving with every game”.

He remains optimistic that his team under the Chairman of Superintendent of Police, Michael Togun can still win their remaining games and book a National Final 8 ticket set to hold in Lagos.

“I am very sure that we can still qualify for the final 8 in Lagos if we keep going at this pace”.

In the competition so far, the restructured Police Batons have lost to Rivers Hoopers and Kwara Falcons and their wins coming against Ondo Raiders and Coal City Miners.
