As the Kenya Basketball Federation season winds down, the playoff races are tightening up. Teams at the top are scrambling for seeding while teams in the middle fight for their playoff lives and teams at the bottom are trying to keep afloat. The Ulinzi Warriors added misery to Blades on Sunday evening by following the same script Equity Bank used the previous weekend. Despite holding leads late in the fourth quarter, the Blades couldn't hang on and the Warriors won 75-69 in overtime. The Ulinzi Warriors went into halftime up 28-25, with both teams struggling from the field. The difference was the Warriors first quarter 16-11 lead. Ulinzi went ice cold at the start of the third period, missing easy baskets, as the Blades took the lead 43-42 at the end of the period. Ulinzi won the last period 15-14 to send the game to overtime after both teams tied 57-57 and went on to win 18-12. Victor Odendo (189-G/F-80) scored a game high 20 points and Erick Mutoro 15 points for Ulinzi. George Okoth had 13 points, Cliff Alella added 11 points for Blades.
Co-op Bank Spartans big first quarter was enough to burry the Lions 48-35. Lions were sloppy with the basketball and struggled on defense and trailed 16-33 at the end of the second quarter. Co-op Bank went on to win the third period 10-8 but they were home and dry even after going down 05-11 in the last period. James Mwangi (198-PF-89) scored 10 points for Spartans. Dennis Opiyo had 10 points for Lions
The USIU Tigers are back on track after avenging first leg gut-wrenching loss to the Trailblazers with a revenge 85-62 win. The team in yellow unleashed all the pent up frustration that built up after dropping a pair of games they should have won racing out to a 9 point lead by the end of a first quarter. Tigers led by double-digits for most part of the game opening a 21 point lead at the end of the third period. While the Trailblazers made a fourth quarter run the Tigers rallied back to coast to a comfortable victory. Derrick Juma once again led the way for USIU with 18 points, Alex Ramazani added 13 points. Lenson Kisia and Ishmael Nyamache scored 13 points each for Trailblazers.
Defending champions USIU Flames had overcame a poor first half to beat K.U Oryx 62-42. Oryx led 25-24 at the half time break but Georgia Adhiambo came out blazing sinking three treys for 11 points in the third quarter as USIU took command of the game.
