A perfect weekend for KIU Titans


By Isaac Akugizibwe

KIU, Main Campus-KIU Titans picked two victories from two games played in two days, Sunday and Saturday to mark a steady run of three wins in a row since losing to City Oilers in the opening game.

The Titans beat Our Saviour Basketball Club 72-62 on Saturday before finishing up their Perfect weekend with an 89-72 victory over Ndejje University Angels on Sunday evening.

The boys in green will have Isaiah Mabeny Ater to thank for the victory against Our Saviour on Saturday. After scoring five threes and added a layup to finish the game with a joint-high 17 points.

Peter Obleng and Amisi Saidi Danny were equally impressive in Saturday's win which seemingly motivated them to go even better on Sunday. The two scored 23 points each in the Titans' victory against Ndejje University Angels.

This weekend's display proved that this Titans team has the potential to end the long wait yet it is still a work in progress, according to the team's administration. They will need to keep winning and perhaps believing in themselves as they seek to dethrone City Oilers.

KIU Rangers Stunned

Whereas the male half of KIU basketball is basking in happiness from the weekend, things are very different on the opposite side. KIU Rangers were treated to a shocker on Saturday afternoon when they were beaten 57-51 by Miracle Eaglets.

The girls in green were outsmarted by the newcomers who produced a game no one really expected. This eventually ended the Rangers' perfect start to this season and will now look at how better to return for game three.

The Rangers have the potential to beat anyone in NBL but will need to change a few things to tick. It's a huge task for Coach Roger Seruyingo but given his pedigree, the Rangers will come back stronger for the next game.
