The Trailblazers jumped out to a quick 9-2 lead against the KCA-University Ninjas and took an 11-8 lead at the end of the first quarter. KCA fought back in the second quarter and took their first lead of the game after they responded with a 8-0 run of their own and led 23-28 at the half time break. Then Trailblazers got it going in the third quarter with a three-pointer from Robert Mwangi, his second of the game. Trail continued their hot start to the quarter and led 38-35 heading into the last quarter. They opened a 10 point lead halfway through the fourth quarter, from there, every bucket that brought the KCA University closer, Trail would convert one to take them further away before winning 58-49 Christopher Kitibwa scored 13 points, Alex Onguso and Lenson Kisia added 10 points each for Trailblazers. Brian Ondari scored 12 points for KCA. Erick Mutoro scored 14 points in the first quarter as the Ulinzi Warriors took a 42-point third quarter lead en route to a 102-42 win over the struggling Nakuru Club. This domination made the reigning KBF champions look like the clear-cut team to beat in this title race once again. The loss puts Nakuru Club in a daunting position, now they must win at least four games to stay out of the relegation zone. Erick scored a game high 29 points, William Ochieng (200-F-85) 22 points and John Washika 15 points for the Warriors. Evans Ochieng had 14 points for Nakuru Club.
Equity Bank Hawks outscored Storms in three quarters before they held off a Storms comeback bid in the fourth quarter to win 46-56. Susan scored 11 points for Equity while Sylvia Omolo scored a game high 15 points for Storms. With the lowly KAA playing a polished Umoja side, why would anyone assume that their wining streak record would be threatened? KAA trailed by 23 points at the halftime break having scored only 3 points that came in the first quarter and they were held scoreless in the second quarter. KAA veteran point guard Steve Mcodongo was on fire in the third quarter scoring four back to back treys bringing KAA to within 18 points but Umoja held on to win 51-40. After their famous win in Kakamega, Emyba needed a solid fourth quarter comeback to fend off game favorites Blazers 47-36 on Saturday morning. Emyba led 36-33 at the end of the third quarter and it's their 11-3 run in the last quarter that won the game.
In the first game of the weekend Little Prince piled more misery to a fast fading Zetech University Sharks side with a 54-49 victory.
