Kenya Drop Six as Lionesses Begin Bubble Camp

Six players have been dropped as Kenya’s national women’s basketball team finally entered the bubble camp ahead of the Fiba Afrobasket qualifiers in Kigali from July 12 to 17.

Seventeen players entered the team’s bubble at the Summer Dale Inn Hotel in Nairobi West as coach George Mayienga and his technical team look to drop a further three ahead of the team’s travel later this week.

Kenya Basketball Federation Deputy Secretary-General, Angela Luchivya, who is coordinating the team’s travel, confirmed that apart from Seline Okumu and Becky Nkatha, who opted out due to work and academic commitments, Taudencia Katumbi, Marylisa Omondi, Valery Kemunto and Marynne Nyagaki were dropped on Sunday.

Fiba had flagged down Okot and Aranda saying players born in 2004 cannot play for the senior national team until they turn 18-years-old unless they participated in Fiba Age group events before.
