Canons, Warriors Face Off in Semifinal Decider - Nov 1, 2016

The national basketball league quarterfinal play-offs continue this weekend, beginning today in Lugogo, with Our Saviour taking on Power before UCU Canons and Warriors wind it up on Sunday in what is expected to be a nerve-wrecking winner-takes-it-all Game Three. UCU Canons took the bull by the horns, when they beat Warriors 76-59 at the Lugogo indoor stadium on Wednesday night. But following Canons' gigantic collapse in game one, which had many writing their epitaph, their bounce back to level their quarter-final series to one all, has seen them shift the balance and gain the momentum to clinch the best of three series. Warriors' assistant coach Ronnie Mutebi was the first to admit that they failed to contain Canons' grit and power with which they approached the game: "They were really fast out of the blocks, executing well on the offence and in defence." In summary, Warriors were second best in every sense. And to recover from that, will require focus and fight. Essentially, this tie has been the peak of the quarter-finals, clouding the others involving City Oilers/UPDF, Falcons/KIU and Power/Our Saviour because of how evenly-poised it is. And unsurprisingly, it has lived up to its expectation to be highly-competitive. In fact, John Omondi , part of the coaching staff at Ndejje University Angels, said that while this fixture is still in the balance on paper, the tactical approach of Canons may be hard for Warriors to beat in game three. He also added, "More than that, Canons look a real unit, seeing the way they help each other to execute a play." Conversely, Warriors, who boast of one of the best assemblies, have been criticized all season for being quite individualistic this season. And although they edged Canons in game one, the general feeling was that Canons lost that game, as opposed to Warriors winning it. And one of Warriors' culprits has been guard Cyrus Kiviri. Critics have argued intermittently that despite his undoubted talent, his zest to set the play, as someone who points the ball, but also wants to be on the end of the move scoring, hurts the team. He ought to be passing or dishing that ball more if Warriors is to outscore Canons. For most time Kiviri dwelled on the ball, Canons players, set up in a zone defence, just looked at him fail to manouvre, yet if he was swinging that ball, as any astute point guard ensures, this would have forced that defence to move. This would have enabled Warriors find gaps to exploit. But in 32 minutes of play of the 40, Kiviri had only three assists. He only scored one point. But Mutebi considered that criticism of Kiviri as unfair since he has normally done well for Warriors. Instead, to Mutebi, the whole team must take the fall other than one individual. He hastily added that Warriors will work on their shortcomings and come back strong on Sunday to make sure the semi-final spot is theirs, and not Canons'.
