Uganda national men's basketball team, the Silverbacks, will play at the 2017 Afrobasket, come August in Congo Brazzaville. The Silverbacks defeated Rwanda 77-64 on Friday night in the semifinal of the Zone V qualifiers in Cairo, Egypt to return to the continental showpiece for a second time running. After a slow start on both ends of the floor, the Ugandans recovered midway through the opening quarter and put on a 15-0 run to close the frame up 24-15. With the Silverbacks down 15-9 with 5:07 to play in the first quarter, A'Darius Pegues (208-F-89, college: Campbellsville) connected two from the line, Stephen Omony (198-G/F-79) followed from deep and then went for lay up to put his team in front. From that point, the Silverbacks did not trail. Rwanda played catch up the rest of the way. They tied the game thrice in the second quarter at 24, 26 and 28 but Uganda eventually pulled away. A'Darius Pegues led the way for Silverbacks with 20 points and 9 rebounds. Stanley Ocitti (203-F/C-80, college: Binghamton) contributed 16 points, Omonyi had 15 and 5 steals while Joseph Ikong (193-F/G) netted 16. Kami Kabangu (203-C-84) scored team high 18 points in a losing effort and so were Kenneth Gasana's 17 points. The Silverbacks await the winner between hosts Egypt and Burundi in final of the tournament that will be played on Saturday. kawowo.com
