EZULWINI – It was their night.

That is how one can describe the night Manzini Superstars claimed four prizes during the MTN Swaziland National Basketball League Awards. The event was held at the mobile company’s premises in Ezulwini on Tuesday. Superstars were the most resilient team as they won the league, and to add the cherry on top, they won three more individual awards.  Bheki ‘Size’ Nxumalo scooped the award for the best coach while the award for the regular season’s Most Valuable Player went to Sandlane ‘GK’ Zwane and Meveure Daniel took home the final most valuable player award. Zwane also received a cheque of E2 000 while Nxumalo took home E1 000 as the award for the best coach.

The champions will smile all the way to the bank with a cheque of E20 000. Speaking after the presentation, coach Nxumalo said he owed the award to the players. “I would have not achieved this if it were not for my players. They showed commitment and resilience and that is why we won the league. The award was a bonus otherwise the biggest achievement was winning the league with this team,” Nxumalo said. Meanwhile, Zwane said he was also happy to take home the award for the regular season most valuable player.

Contributed

“It was a tough season but I want to thank the management, coach and players for this award. They all contributed to winning this award. I am hoping we will defend the league and this award,” Zwane said. Other individual prizes went to the youngest players in the three leagues, namely the Elite Men’s League, Men’s Promotional League and National Women League. Shining in the NML as the youngest player was Enjabulweni Griffins’ Angel Nkambule, with Chase’s Vilakati Simile taking a trophy in the MPL and Mbabane Jazz’s Andzile Nsibandze winning an award in the elite league. The champions in the MPL were Langalam Dunkylaine and they received an E11 500 cheque while the champions in the NWL were Super Ladies.
