He was speaking after the porters' first two Kenya National Basketball League games coming immediately after their Basketball Africa League (BAL) outing in Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania.
"Yes we posted good results and I am really happy with the performance. The boys did a great job both in offence and defense," offered KPA coach Sammy Kiki.
"The new players played so well. We are getting better game by game. Though the team chemistry is not yet at the top, I believe with time, we will reach there."
