Malezi Performs At Buruburu Basketball Open

Malezi School beat all opposition to reach the finals of the Nairobi Secondary Schools Sports Association's (NSSA) Buruburu Open 2012. Once again, they showed that they will fight to reach the final four in this year's provincial games, when they pipped former national champions, Aquinas, 42-29 and tournaments favourites Upperhill A 25 - 14, on their way to meeting their nemesis, the UNICEF-sponsored and well-heeled Upperhill B, where they lost 31-39 in a close encounter. Says Lino Manyuel for the team, "We have almost nothing, but we showed that basketball is the game that makes all equal, if you believe in yourself, you can make a difference". Zack Okong'o won the MVP Award.
