In undoubtedly the most exciting game of the season, Equity Bank managed to edge out a resilient Blades late in overtime with a 74-70 win on Saturday evening at Upperhill High School. Trailing by three with 9 seconds left in regulation, Equity's Edwin Otula drained a game-tying three-point shot from the wing to draw even with Blades, which sent the game into overtime after Blades failed to kill off the game from the line. In overtime, Blades held a 70-69 lead with 45 left before Edwin delivered another dagger and Equity were up by one. After that Blades came up empty on its next possession and then fouled Ian Wachie, who knocked down two shots from the line to put Equity up by three which sealed a Equity win. Edwin Otula scored 11 points, Ray Wanjohi, Ian Wachie and Richard Mutua had 10 points each for Equity Bank. Joseph Ongoro had 20 points, Cliff Alela 16 points and Emmanuel Soja 12 points for the Blades. Derrick Juma led the charge for USIU Tigers with 18 points to lead the Tigers past KPA 47-39. Tigers came out strong going and led 29-22 at the end of the second quarter. USIU went on to win the third quarter 16-7. To pull this one out, KPA needed a lot of things to go right among them a big fourth quarter. They got that, and the outcome was still in doubt, the 10-2 fourth quarter run was not good enough. The Ulinzi Warriors led 30-7 at the halftime break before dispatching Trailblazers 65-42. The defending champions have won three consecutive games. KPA ladies extended their winning streak to 11 games by beating the USIU Flames 52-28. Flames scored 2 points in the first quarter and had 5 points at the half time break, that's how one-sided the game was for a team that lacked all their starters against a strong KPA side. Lucy Machuma had 11 points and Volnet Wanyama 10 points, and Eagle Wings beat the Masaku Sparks 44-31.
