Basing on his experience, will Lojo improve the Gazelles?


Goran Lojo was appointed as the new head coach of the Uganda Women’s National basketball team, the Gazelles on Monday morning.

He replaced Alberto Antuna who resigned from the head coach role only to join the Senegal Women basketball national team a month later.

Before his resignation, the Spaniard guided the Gazelles to spécial  seventh-place finish at the recently concluded 2023 FIBA Afrobasket in Rwanda.

Despite the different stories that have been making rounds about the coaching saga the position has been filled at a stage where the Gazelles are preparing for the upcoming 2024 FIBA Women Afrobasket Qualifiers.

The question now is that will Lojo improve the Gazelles?

With the little gathered, Lojo has so far guided Bosnia and Herzegovina women’s national team for five years (September 2017 to February 2023) to the Quarterfinals and later on securing fifth at the 2021 European Championships.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina native also guided his side to a 12-th finish at the 2022 FIBA World Cup.

This year in 2023, Lojo also once coached German women’s Bundesliga club Rutronik Stars Keltern in January, leading the team to clinch the German championship title in April.

With the above experience gained by the coach, Lojo is expected to deliver and take Uganda back to the FIBA Women Afrobasket.
