Javon Ladies vs KCCA Leopards
Javon ladies will return to league action today against unbeaten power house KCCA leopards today at MTN indoor Arena lugogo.
Javon ladies had their game on Sunday with Lioness abandoned because the referees had not arrived by the morning time the game was supposed to tip off.
Not playing last Sunday may serve as a blessing in disguise as the team who had only won twice in their 6 matches will now have faced enough time to rest and prepare for this battle with the Leopards.
Their last match was a loss against Eddy Oumo’s A1 challengers, and the team was punished for their failure to contain Stella Nikoze who scored 25 points in a 72-53 loss.
Whether they are in a good shape to stop KCCA’s Joy Chemutai is still a big question.
Chemutai scored the last 5 points in overtime taking her tally on the day to 19 points as KCCA picked their 7th win of the campaign last Sunday at YMCA court against Nicholas Natuhereza’s UCU lady Canons.
Leopards have had a good track record this season, beating KIU, JKL, Gladiators, A1 challengers, Magic Stormers, Lioness and UCU lay Canons.
KCCA Leopards who have won the championship in 2007, 2009, 2012 and 2014 will look into their armory of Chemutai, Martha Soigi, Sylvia Nakazibwe and Cynthia Irakunda if they are to keep their winning streak alive.
