KIU, Main Campus-KIU Titans has issued an official statement thanking all stakeholders and Titans for the support rendered to the team through the 2022 NBL season. The statement published on Monday 26th September 2022 also indicated that the Titans are proud to have finished number four.
KIU Titans lost the third place playoff 68-69 against UCU Canons on Sunday to end the 2022 NBL campaign in fourth place, a position they are proud of according to the club statement published on Monday.
The Titans began the season with three consecutive defeats before winning four and again losing four in a row. This kind of performance cast doubts on the team's chances of even making the top eight in the regular season but the addition of Fidel Okoth Odour Isaiah, Mabeny Ater and Joseph Chuma as well as the return of Stanley Mugerwa eventually changed their fortunes. They made it to the Playoffs as one of the most feared sides after finishing fourth in the regular season.
The boys in green swept away Power basketball club in the best of three quarterfinal series to meet up noisy neighbors, Namuwongo Blazers who claimed the semifinal Playoffs series 3-1 two weeks ago. The Titans proved they could fight when they beat a star-studded Blazers side in game two but couldn't find the same footing in game three and four which saw them packing.
Nevertheless, this team finished the season with decency both in performance and in ranking, and given the teams in the finals, it is agreeable, the Titans did their best.
