Friday Night Lights Roll Off On a High At YMCA Grounds - Mar 9, 2016

The sixth coming as the catch phrase is for the Friday Night Lights (FNL) fun basketball tournament, kicked off on a high last Friday evening at the YMCA grounds in Wadegeya. Two weeks ago the tournament hung in balance, after Kinetic Management Group (KMG) headed by Cedric Babu decided to do a copy-and-paste version of the tournament dubbed Lites Up on Saturday. Local basketball body, Fuba, sided with Babu at the expense of FNL. However, sponsors Castle Lite insisted on having one tournament and brought all parties together. As such, FNL prevailed; the tournament followed its past script of having national basketball league players team up with fans, then tussle it out for cash. Last year, each win was worth Shs 400,000 while the loss was Shs 200,000. But that killed the fun out of the tournament as the team captains ignored the fans because of the financial attachment. This time round, each team take home Shs 300,000 irrespective of the result but the major catch will be on the final winners. The overall winner will walk away with Shs 3m, while the first runner-up will get Shs 2m and the second runner-up Shs 1.5m. The organizers chose eight captains: Maureen Amoding (Team Amoding), Kami Kabange (201-F/C) (Team Kami), Ben Komakech (PG) (Team Koma), Jonah Otim (Team Jonah), Joseph Ikong (Team Ikong), Norman Blick (199-F/G-83) (Team Blick), Ivan Enabu (Team Enabu) and Team Wazee. As usual, the biggest catch is the fun part and the title spon- sors ensured that people enjoyed drinks at discounted prices. The music was blazing with DJ Sleek Stuart taking turns with DJ Roja on the decks. Those who couldn't make it to YMCA grounds in Wandegeya didn't miss a thing as Spark TV, a sister station on NTV aired the tournament live.
