KIU Titans strip JKL Dolphins bare in floodlights


By Isaac Akugizibwe

KIU, Main Campus-KIU Titans completed the weekend on a high with two successive much-needed and very impressive victories against heavyweights City Oilers and JKL Dolphins respectively.

But it is the win against JKL Dolphins on Sunday evening that should act as a special warning to the teams that are yet to test the fury of the KIU Titans who are now approaching every game as a final.

 "UPDF Tomahawks and Power should be worried for their dear lives," a Titans fan wrote on social media.

Indeed an 88-56 score line speaks volumes of what KIU Titans had to display and what JKL Dolphins had to endure but there was a little bit more than that.

Edgar Munaba and Henry Okoth were simply magnificent, the whole team was irresistibly determined and hungrier for more and could have had more.

Munaba posted 11 points,18 rebounds and two assists before being named Tusker lite man of the game for the fifth time this season while Henry Okoth maintained his fine form scoring 22points, six rebounds and four assists as he looks to fulfil his promise of leading the Titans to glory this season.

Raymond Muhumuza's Titans were without star man Ahmed Kassa who is said to have traveled to Kenya but there was no sign that the boys missed the sensational rasta man.

KIU Titans are now sixth on the NBL men's table with 30 points, two below table leaders UCU Canons and one behind City Oilers, Power basketball club and UPDF Tomahawks respectively. The Titans are four points above fifth-placed JKL Dolphins and Noisy neighbours, Namuwongo Blazers who remain seventh though with four games in hand.
