KIU Basketball Teams Secure Spots in NBL Championship Finals


By Isaac Akugizibwe

KIU, Main Campus-KIU Titans and KIU Rangers have etched their names in the National Basketball League Finals history, a remarkable feat for the university.

 Dominating the Semifinals, the Titans swept UCU Canons 3-0, while the Rangers made a historic entry by outclassing JT Lady Jaguars. Both teams, unbeaten in the Postseason, radiate potential to seize the championship.

In a redemption storyline, KIU Titans aim to avenge their 2017 finals defeat to City Oilers, who seek their ninth consecutive title. The Titans, having eliminated UCU Canons, are on the cusp of their maiden triumph. Meanwhile, City Oilers progressed by overcoming Our Saviour Basketball Club.

This season has been a triumph for KIU Rangers and Titans, transforming them from potential contenders to undeniable forces. KIU Titans, starting strong by winning the UCU Open, are determined to culminate their journey with a historic championship.

The Rangers, often underestimated, defy the odds by sweeping JT Lady Jaguars. While skeptics doubt their ability to match last year's finalists, JKL Dolphins, the Rangers' determination and hunger for glory make them formidable contenders.

 Kansanga might soon celebrate as KIU Rangers and Titans stand poised to bring the coveted NBL prize for both men and women home.
