Ma­supha said he could not have won the awards at a bet­ter time.

“Maseru-born play­ers have al­ways shone in bas­ket­ball but I have been coach­ing for four years now and work­ing hard to prove oth­er­wise and I think th­ese awards will go a long way to prove that I am right,” he said.

In his key­note ad­dress, LBa pres­i­dent, Molupe Mothepu said: “This is a very spe­cial night where we are cel­e­brat­ing cham­pi­ons.

“I would like to ex­press my sin­cere thanks to the Le­sotho Sports and Recre­ation Com­mis­sion and the Le­sotho Na­tional olympic Com­mit­tee be­cause with­out their sup­port, we wouldn’t be here tonight.

I would also like to thank our spon­sors for be­liev­ing in us.”
