The Cross River State Government says it has drafted serving senior and retired Basketball players to train students registered to participate in the 19th edition of the Nestle Milo Secondary School Basketball Championship.

No fewer than 30 schools are to take part in the competition whose preliminaries is holding at the U.J Esuene stadium in Calabar, the Cross River State capital reports DAILYTRUST Newspapers.

The chairman of the state’s sports commission, Orok Duke said the state government aims at making a mark in the game with Festus Oduah, a retired Basketball coach brought in to take charge of the state contingent at the championship.

“When it involves so many students we actually deploy senior players to train them. Of course, this is the 19th edition and we are ready” Duke said and noted that the championship will not affect school programs.

“The timing is good because it has not conflicted with the school time table in terms of running exams and at the same time having the championship. Our program is that after the Ayade U-15 football tournament we will have the basketball championship” Duke said.
