Africa League (BAL).<< Morale is at his top, we are very determined and committed to going to represent Cameroon and the Armed Forces and Police in this competition.
We had about ten days of preparation where we tried to work on what didn't work in order to do better than during the 1st phase. We are going to play the REG team at
home but it galvanizes us to play in front of their public. We will give the best to go as far as possible in this competition>> declares Cédric Tsangue, Fap player.
The team roster is known
The team has undergone a slight change, namely three newcomers to the team. << We have three major changes: Abou Diallo, a Senegalese interior who
comes from France. We have Minlend Alexander Junior who comes from the United States to strengthen us on the outside sector because we have Essome who is injured and out of
competition. Finally, we have Yves-Louis Ngaransou who, thanks to his performance in the Final Four at the National Elite Championship, convinced us. He logically replaces
captain Ebakuh Akumenzoh >> informs François Enyegue, Main Coach of FAP Basketball. They join the oldest Cédric Tsangue, Etienne Tametong, Liale Cyrille, Brice Eyaga Bidias,
