Betway Power: Mchuda Blames Defense After False Start

Betway Power coach Arnold ‘Mchuda’ Lando has put blame to team defense after a disapointing start to this year’s National Basketball League.

The Five time champions, whose last title came in 2011, lost their two opening games last weekend.

They suffered a 91-66 loss to KIU Titans on Saturday before falling to a 91-79 defeat to Ndejje University Angels.

“We gave away a lot of second chance points on the front court, awareness on the Bigs and the missing element of boxing out,” Mchuda told The-SportsNation.

“We Need to solidify our defense more, most of the players I have are offensive players so I need to change their mindset to defense as priority because in both games the teams had a running score on us.

“We need to improve our defense both set and Transitional, then offensively, we didn’t have a transitional run. The guards have to move the ball more and the ball had to get to the post more frequently. Also follow the set offensive plays.”

In both games, Power missed Amisi Saidi Carmelo and Lajoe, and Mchuda says that they would been able to pick needed results for both or one of the two games.
