Canons Take on City Oilers - Jun 7, 2016

It is a repeat of last year's national basketball league (NBL) championships in both the men and women's categories as champions and runners-up clash tonight at YMCA courts in Wandegeya, reports JOHN VIANNEY NSIMBE. Nick Natuhereza doubles as the men and women' Uganda Christian University (UCU) basketball teams coach. While the women's team won the 2015 NBL title, it still did not make up for his failure to guide the men's team over City Oilers in the men's final. He lost the seven game series 3-4 despite coming from 2-0 down to level it. Although it is now water under the bridge, the outcome then still hurts. Yet, not any less is the way the off-season decimated much of Natuhereza's team, a talking point going into this weekend's lead fixtures. Joseph Chuma and Joseph Wacha were clausal in UCU's run to the final last season, the same way they have helped 'Our Saviour', their new team maintain its 100% record thus far in the season, with four wins, including a 53-38 victory over UCU. The defeat to Our Saviour was humiliating for UCU, but Natuhereza says his team has since recovered. "Nevertheless, no team would remain the same after it has lost seven key players in the off-season, although we are coping now," Natuhereza says. Clearly, the departure of Wacha and Chuma, plus Desmond Owili (198-C/F), Ivan Lumanyika (F/C-92), Innocent Odour, Martin Okwako (194-F-83) and Boniface Okello stripped UCU Canons naked. Yet, since their humiliation at the hands of Our Saviour, UCU have beaten Ndejje Angels, Charging Rhinos and KIU Titans. It is against background, boosted with a recent average of 66 points per win that Canons believe they can beat City Oilers (whose average score has been 79 points) tonight. However, City Oilers are a team that has been built over six years, with few departures, making them as solid in all departments.
In the women's league, UCU's high-profile loss was Purity Odhiambo to JKL Dolphins in the close season. But with Sarah Ageno and Judith Nansobya among others, Natuhereza still has a formidable team. However, KCCA added Patricia Alado from Amazon Rhinos and two Burundi imports from Berco Stars: Larisa Katungeko and Florence Kalume to conquer UCU, first, then the region, second. KCCA guard, Becky Akullo, told The Observer that they were still a work in progress, yet clearly a different proposition.

NBL Round 12: Our Saviour records their first victory - 3 days ago
Our Saviour has finally registered their first victory this season after four consecutive losses.

But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Steven Mwesigye who helped to win the game recording 14 points, 9 rebounds, 5...   [read more]
