Victor Odendo (189-G/F-80), the Kenya Basketball Federation men's Premier League most valuable player in 2015 made his debut for Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) over the weekend in Nairobi.
He made a surprise move from the military side to KPA in the biggest transfer of the season. Apart from Odendo, the dockers have added Victor Ochieng from Lions to their stable for the new season. Odendo scored 12 points on Saturday as KPA beat Equity Bank 86-61. In that game, Victor Bosire and Evans Letting top-scored with 16 points each as Bosire hit four three-pointers. Kevin Chogo scored 16 points for Equity as Vincent Onsogo added 11. Equity won the first quarter 22-18 but KPA won the second 22-9, the third 23-14 and the fourth 23-16.
On Sunday, Odendo lined up again for KPA as they beat Strathmore Blades 62-44. League returnees Umoja inflicted the third loss to Lions by winning 72-68 in overtime.
The game tied 61-61 after four quarters with Umoja winning 11-7 in added time. Umoja opened up a seven-point lead of 16-9 to win the first quarter 17-16. Lions then led 29-28 at halftime after winning the second quarter 13-11. In the quarter, the contest was very close with Lions leading 18-17 and 21-19 while Umoja led 19-18 and 26-24. There were ties of 24-24 and 26-26. Lions led for 10 points in the third quarter at 38-28 but the final score tied 11-11. Lions maintained their slim lead going to the fourth quarter at 40-39. Umoja started the fourth quarter by forcing a 41-41 tie but Lions had the lead for the longest period in the entire quarter. Umoja led 43-41 and 45-44 with Lions leading 44-43, 46-45 and 52-50. There was a 50-50 tie. With three seconds to play, Michael Munene who came off the bench fired a three-pointer that denied Lions the win for the tie to force overtime play. In added time, Lions had an early edge taking a five-point lead from a three-pointer by Khamis Tuasir and a free shot each from Antony Mbori and Amos Wachira. Nick Ogol made two free shots and another free shot from Kevin Sunguti as Umoja cut the lead to two points. With 1:16 on the clock, Gilbert Obiero sunk a three-pointer as Umoja led 67-66. John Achola returned the favour for Lions with a basket. But, Kennedy Njoroge (175-G-80) made a three-point shot for Umoja with a minute on the clock to kill off Lions. Martin Okwako then added two free shots that sealed the win for Umoja. Ogol top scored with 16 points and Obiero added 14. Brian Ocholla scored highest for Lions with 19 points while Dennis Opiyo added 18.
