JKL Dolphins vs Ndejje University Angels 8pm
It is eighth up against nineth as JKL Dolphins play host to the visiting Ndejje University Angels in the Men’s National Basketball League game tonight at the YMCA outdoor court in Wandegeya.
There has been no difference so far from these sides in terms of their performance in general as both teams are tied on 12 points each.
And tonight’s encounter seems to be their tie-breaker.
The University side has registered four wins and four losses from 8 games this season, a poor record regarding their big expectations.
After tonight’s thriller with JKL Dolphins, Ndejje still has two tougher fixtures with Betway Power and Falcons and that poor record may worsen.
Othieno Michael garnered 29 points in their last game as Ndejje fought back to record their fourth victory of the season against Our Saviour.
If Ochera Innocent and Deng Maker join the party, Walker Obedi’s Angels may put up a strong challenge.
At the other end of the court, stands a struggling JKL Dolphins who have lost 6 games from their 9 encounters this season so far.
Despite the success of their sister team JKL Lady Dolphins in the ladies league, the men’s team has struggled to compete fully.
The men’s side has failed to match up with their sister team’s performance so far, but it is too early to criticize them due to conditions at hand.
The team poses with a good roster of Blick Norman, Pemha Jeane, Odama Ferdinand, Libe Makala, Orenga, Ochala and many others.
But their Coach player Boniface Okello is yet to find the winning formula.
It promises to be a tough encounter for the Dolphins as the new comers have suffered 5 consecutive defeats since their last victory against Sharing Youth.
