    I am content with such a development. The league is a foundation for the Campus Basketball League in the country. There seems to be a well regulated structure by the organisers. It is an advertisement of basketball. The organisers are also working hard to maximise publicity of the league, an act which can only attract sponsorship in basketball.

    As a contributor noted, there is one lad fresh from high school who will make wonders. Thus there is a strong connection with this foundation of Campus Basketball League and the high schools.

    I hope the marketers are taking notice.

    But the crowning information of this league is not yet released. I am not at liberty to divulge it. This planned event will change the image of basketball. The sport will no longer be boring for the spectators. They will also receive value more that the R5 they will pay.
