By Akugizibwe Isaac

KIU Rangers ended the Weekend with a magnificent 100-35 Victory over  Nabisunsa girls on Sunday while the Titans beat KCCA Panthers 79-66 on Saturday.

KIU Rangers Captain Ines Kanyamuneza was exceptional in the team's triumph over Nabisunsa as she scored the game's highest 30 points.

She added six rebounds, two assists, and four blocks while Sharon Kirabo 13, Brenda Ayere 11, and Mary Moses Amaniyo also scored in double figures.

KIU Rangers started Sunday's game brightly and were 56-19 up at halftime—the biggest halftime score for the team so far this season.

The win made it 14 wins from 17 games of the regular season for Julius Lutwama's KIU Rangers.


Titans Earn Sweet Revenge over KCCA 

Titans needed a strong second-half performance to overcome KCCA Panthers in a 79-66 thriller at YMCA Court on Saturday evening.
The Titans, who were trailing 40-31 at halftime, turned the game around in the third quarter and went on to make it 11 wins in as many games since losing to the same team in April.
The Titans scored 48 points in the second half and limited KCCA to only 26 to ensure they had earned sweet revenge against Raymond Muhumuza's Panthers.
Pierre Kasereka Tembo was magnificent from the perimeters, playing a pivotal role in KIU Titans triumph over KCCA.

The Congolese International scored the game's highest 29 points, including seven three-pointers from 12 attempts and three layups from five attempts.
Three other Titans scored in double figures, with Edgar Munaba and Juf Mpiya registering 11 points each and Joel Lukoji Banza scoring 10.
