Natuhereza Pursues Perfection As UCU Meet Oilers - Jun 4, 2016

Kalwanyi
After eight years of hurt, UCU Canons broke their National Basketball League playoff final jinx. They went a step further, taking the best-of-seven series into the final game before running out of steam as City Oilers won 78-67 last year. The two teams have since taken different paths. City Oilers maintained the bulk of the roster that delivered the three-peat by adding Brian Ssentongo and Jonah Otim from Ndejje to replace the US College-bound Samuel Kalwanyi (200-F-95) as well as the injured Ben Komakech. That has since been followed by a perfect 4-0 start this term. UCU Canons lost three of their most experienced players in the front court pairing of Ivan Lumanyika (F/C-92) and Desmond Owilli as well as guard Innocent Oduor. With such departures in mind, Canons coach Nick Natuhereza is well aware of the task that awaits his team when they meet City Oilers this evening at the Lugogo MTN Arena. "They have improved their team," acknowledged Natuhereza. "On our day, however, we can still beat any team in the league," added the often blunt speaking tutor. Natuhereza though did admit they will have to be perfect as they seek to improve to a 4-1 start. "Pretty much so. The positives are that we have had a collective effort from the whole team," he added. On Wednesday, Joseph Ikong scored a season high 28 points in Power's 92-66 blow-out victory over UPDF Tomahawks. The result helped Power maintain their perfect start to the season after four games with Ikong averaging more than 22 points in that sequence.
