With the 2019 Zenith Women Basketball League scheduled to dunk off in April, Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Women Basketball club of Lagos have continued to perfect strategies for the new season in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
The team which is led by veteran women’s coach, Aderemi Adewunmi has promised the sponsor Dr. Daniel Olukoya who is the General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries the league trophy at the end of the season.
“What we did last year was just to show our intent but we are going for the title this year. I am confident that we will achieve our goal.
“At the end of last season, I told our sponsor Dr Olukoya in his office that we are bringing the title to his office and I stand by my words. He has played his part by sending us to Akure for close camping and with the young team supported by a few experienced players, there is no stopping us”, stated the former national team coach.
It will be recalled that the Shade Olukoya Queens as the team is called took the league by storm last season and narrowly missed out on a place on the continent after losing the third place game which saw them finish fourth.
