Ballers face tune up tests

National team players compete during a practice session at Olympic Stadium yesterday.

As part of their 26th SEA Games warm-up, Cambodia’s hoopsters will play two friendlies back to back against a team from Ho Chi Minh City today and tomorrow at the indoor  hall of Olympic Stadium.

The two tune up matches afford coach Austin Koledoye of Nigeria a chance to take a close look at three of his foreign imports who have now joined the squad.

American-Cambodians Pek Mith and Ouen Sopoeun jump in with Sweden-based Thach Boroth for today’s fixture, which tips off at 5pm, the same time as tomorrow’s start.

The national team will be heading to China on Sunday for a six-nation China-ASEAN Invitational Tournament to be held in Nanning Province next week.

The fourth member of Cambodia’s overseas quartet, Austrian-born Stefan Doll-Therro Sao, is giving the friendlies and the tour a miss but is expected to join the rest of the squad on November 2 in time for the start of the SEA Games basketball competion 10 days later. The event will be held in the Britama Sports Center in Kelapa Gading, Jakarta.
