KIU Titans Attack UPDF Tomahawks, Rangers Entertain Champions Dolphins


The National Basketball league resumes this weekend as the KIU Titans prepare to ambush the UPDF Tomahawks, while the Rangers face champions and early pace-setters JKL Dolphins.

Fresh from a rejuvenating 85-78 win over the UCU Canons last weekend, the Titans will be seeking to build more momentum with a win against a stubborn Tomahawks side as they aim to steady their ship for another title challenge.

Without a doubt one of the favourites for the title, Titans will bank on the sensational Faisal Aden (in the picture) to lead the team again.

Aden was unstoppable as he scored a game-high 27 points against the Canons being aided by Michael Bwanga’s 14 to make a late rally and snatch victory in the last quarter.

Coach Brian Wathum will also expect new signing Ariel Okall to rise up to the occasion after a paltry return of 11 points in his first two games, a disappointing statistic for the highly-rated Kenyan international.

In the ladies’ game, the KIU Rangers entertain a fledgling JKL Dolphins side, who are once again the favourites to land this season’s title, despite the Rangers leading the league table prior to last week’s 46-62 loss to KCCA Leopards.

The defending champions will however face a huge stumbling block in a Rangers side that have shown serious intent of grabbing the title from their bitter rivals.
