Sharing Youth vs City Oilers
Nkumba Marines vs Pemba Warriors
Falcons vs Our Saviour
Ndejje University Angels vs Betway Power.
All roads will this Sunday lead to MTN Arena in Lugogo as 8 teams will vie for points in an action packed day in the Men’s National Basketball League.
First on court will be defending champions City Oilers before other pretenders to his throne in Warriors, Falcons and Betway Power follow the suit.
Mandy Juruni’s Oilers seat uncomfortably in 4th position, having collected 15 points from their 9 games, they seat 4 points below joint table toppers KIU Titans and UCU Canons.
City Oilers have lost 3 games; against Betway Power, UCU canons and Ndejje University but the team is in buoyant mood after their recent drubbing of JKL dolphins, a game that saw 5 of their players in Omony, Omondi, Landry, Chuma and Jimmy Enabu score 10+ points.
Sharing Youth on the other hand, come into this encounter at the back of a 57-63 victory against UPDF Tomahawks, a game that saw Tong Gatwech score 19 points.
The victory was Sharing Youth’s 3rd overall this season as the team had earlier picked wins against Ndejje University Angels and Nkumba Marines.
In the other games, Pemba Warriors whose slight outing was a slight 75-74 win against KIU Titans will hope to build on that momentum as they take on struggling Nkumba Marines.
Startimes Falcons will hope to return to winning ways as they play host to the visiting Our Saviour Basketball team.
The last game of the busy day will see 5 time Champions Power take on joint table leaders Ndejje University Angels.
