REIGNING women champions Equity Bank will have to improve on their outside shooting if they harbour any hopes of thriving in the league.

Coach David Maina said despite winning 91-52 over Africa Nazarene University (ANU) over the weekend, they are not yet there when it comes to perimeter shooting.

“We picked up in the second quarter and controlled the boards well. We need to work on scoring outside the ‘D’ and off steals. Rotation so far is working well,” Observed bankers coach David Maina.
