Thunder men’s basketball team head coach Sadat Gaya says the sporting hiatus brought by the COVID-19 pandemic has given him more time to improve his tactics by attending online coaching clinics.

The stay-in-place restrictions of the novel coronavirus has also allowed Gaya to re-watch more replays and analyze his team’s plays more critically.

Gaya who led Thunder to finish second after losing to Ulinzi in last year’s final of the Kenya Basketball Federation says he is always in touch with his players in order to monitor the progress of their personalized training.

“My player Kevin Chogo who tore his Achilles tendon, his recovery is going well, he may be back by October and that’s good news for us,” he added.

Thunder had lost Collins Wekesa who joined Eldoret-side Eldonets and Shem Otieno who joined Equity. At the same time, Collins Odhiambo had come back after missing last season due to family and work related matters.
