Falcons' Quest for Answers Leaves More Questions - May 23, 2016

Stephen
Omony
It might just be early days in the 2016 Fuba league but three consecutive losses for StarTimes Falcons spell doom for the record champions, writes FELIX EUPAL. Before the season kicked off, Falcons skipper Stephen Omony (198-G/F-79) was in a very confident mood about what his team would offer. "Just wait for what we have in stock. We are going to shock you," he said. And, indeed, the six-time national champions have shocked many. They began by losing to Pemba Warriors in a game where they played without a coach because Kenyan tactician Ben Olouch, who led them to the semis last year, was yet to return. The second game saw Brian Rugyendo, president Uganda basketball coaches association, come up on the touchline as new head coach when they faced Ndejje Angels. Falcons looked clueless about how to stop a Ndejje side which also didn't have a coach because their coach, Walker Obedi, is facing a ten-match ban. Nonetheless, Ndejje ran riot, condemning Falcons to their second defeat of the season. Rugyendo then argued the team was getting to know each other and he was also getting to know them, having just had one training session with them. Last Friday was supposed to gauge how true Rugyendo's assessment had been when they were up against defending champions City Oilers. Forty minutes into the game, it was evident Falcons players haden't gotten to know each other and neither did Rugyendo know his team. City Oilers had a fun outing as they easily won 67-44 in a one-sided affair. Jimmy Enabu (183-G-88) had 25 points, James Okello (186-F) added another 14 while Uspa Basketballer of the year 2015, Kami Kabangu (203-C-84), had 10. For Falcons, only Omony and Joseph Ouma could manage double digits with 15 and 10 points respectively. Falcons lost three players during the post season in: Ariell Okall, Caesar Kizito and Isaac Afidra and that left them bare in the paint. They struggled to pick rebounds and were totally blunt on offense. They were outrebounded 49-24 and despite Oilers' 17 turnovers, Falcons could hardly capitalize on any. And mostly Rugyendo can't quite get his rotation right. For instance, he had Ouma on the floor for 32 minutes yet it was clear he had run out of steam; and with age catching up on David Kiberu, playing him for 28 minutes like he did is asking too much of him - no wonder he managed only six points. But Omony is still confident. "We shall get there; the team definitely has issues to sort. It is young team and adjustments are being made," he said after the City Oilers game. But the major adjustment that Falcons need is to get an efficient power forward and proficient centre, to be able to rotate on both fronts. This Friday, they play Our Savior, which is on a two-game winning streak after seeing off UCU Canons and Sharing Youth. That will leave Herbert Akitah and David Kiberu with their work cut out because Our Savior's Steven Mwesigye is in fine form and a monster on clearing the boards. If Falcons succumb to the Our Savior, then there will be need for a crisis meeting because the panic buttons have already been pressed.
