LKP Sponsors Men's Basketball Team

The Solomon Islands Men's National Basketball Team got a huge boost to their Pacific Games campaign with a sponsorship from LKP Hardware.

The Men's Basketball team coach, Ryan Burns, stated that he is proud to be working in partnership with LKP Hardware. Through the sponsorship arrangement, LKP Hardware has provided the Solomon Islands Men's National Basketball Team with uniforms, T-shirts and bags.

"This is great for our team," said Head Coach Ryan Burns. "It is great to have a strong Solomon Island business supporting a great Solomon Islands basketball team," said Coach Burns. "We are looking forward to Samoa and thanks to LKP Hardware, we now have the final items that we need to be successful at the South Pacific Games."

Coach Ryan Burns expressed his deep gratitude for the help stating that the help would go a long way in advancing basketball in the country. Coach Burns also personally thanked everyone at LKP Hardware for their support.

The Men's Basketball Team has been training for the past 8 months in preparation for the games. The fantastic result in their Australian tour has boosted the confidence of the team going into the Pacific Games in Samoa. The Men's National Basketball team will have to dig deep when they take on hosts Samoa in their first game.
