Langevine underlined: “Well, we took the last two games as lessons so we know what we have to improve on such as free throws; we made more free throws than the last game, we were disciplined, we passed the ball. In the first and second quarters, we weren’t taking the game seriously, because we took advantage of the team, so we became disciplined in the other two quarters to maintain the top.”

In a post-match interview with media operatives, Captain of Kwakwani Untouchables, Demarcus Adams expounded on the key towards the win.
“I would say is a team effort whereas defensively and offensively, first it starts with defence trying to like get every play, the hustles, everything; just trying to put the best foot forward, because is always a team effort. I would always say if one player slacking up, the next player would pick up where that player left off just trying to hold one head as a team,” Adams said.
