Friday July 28
Men: Pemba Warriors vs KIU Titans
Ladies: Javon Ladies vs KIU Rangers.
It promises to be a thrilling tussle in the Men’s National Basketball League today at the MTN indoor Arena in Lugogo.
Warriors who are third on the log with 15 points could go joint top if they pick maximum points today against the Titans.
It’s now easier to tell that Warriors are back on track after that 59-68 win against Sharing Youth on Wednesday at the YMCA Outdoor court in Wandegeya.
With Nkumba and JKL Dolphins still on their menu, Ronnie Mutebi’s only hurdle should be tonight’s encounter against the table leaders.
Titans who are at the summit with 17 points from 9 games, have only suffered one defeat this season and it was in the hands of defending Champions when Sudi Ulanga only managed 3 points as Oilers roasted them 73-64.
Ulanga is now back on fire and he hit a game high 24 points as they recorded their biggest win of the season recently on Sunday against 6 time Champions StarTimes Falcons as the team continued to miss the services of Ivan Lumanyika.
With Sudi Ulanga this side and Warriors’ Michael Buzangu at the other end of the court, that surely is a disaster imminent. It is Armageddon.
In the other encounter, KIU Rangers will face off Javon Ladies in the Ladies category at 6pm.
