KIU Titans Face Double Weekend Test, Rangers in Epic UCU Clash


The KIU Titans face a double test this weekend with back-to-back games against Warriors on Saturday and Sharing Youth on Sunday.

This is the second time this season that Titans have played two games in the space of two days, with the last coming a couple of weeks ago when they faced Namuwongo Blazers and UPDF Tomahawks consecutively.

And it is from these last double-header outings that Titans will draw inspiration, after defeating both Nam Blazers and UPDF in those back-breaking duels.

Though both games seem easy on paper, Titans will need to summon all their arsenal to maintain their great start to the season. The Titans have lost only once all season and are only behind champions City Oil in the league table.

They must hope that 25-point Faisal Aden will continue with his rampaging form and the recovery of Ariel Okall from illness has definitely come at the right time.

Okall presented with an unidentified illness at the start of the week but he has fully recovered and is back in training.

"I am feeling better and better. I just had my last dosage. I've been down a few days ago but now I am hopeful to return to court over the weekend, " Okall said.

Meanwhile, the KIU Rangers will be up against UCU Lady Canons in an epic all-university clash at the KIU Courts, with no love lost between the two rivals.

Rangers lost in their last league outing but have had a two-week break and will hope to return to winning ways this Sunday.
