Power hope for no permanent scars ahead of KIU decider - Nov 18, 2016

The fashion of Betway Power's 69-54 Wednesday defeat by KIU Titans is the kind that can so often leave permanent scars on any player. As the Lugogo MTN Arena emptied, Power must have hurriedly wanted to disappear into the dark. For 40 minutes, they must have hated basketball. 'Sometimes, you get beat up, we just did,' Joseph Ikong said. The margin is as extremely deceptive as all the lies you've heard in your life. Their raw speed was gone as KIU battered them into early submission. If that was a boxing match, coach Arnold Olando would have fittingly thrown in the towel to save his players from the shame. Luckily, this is a five-game semifinal series, now tied at 2-up, whose prize is a place in the Pepsi National Basketball League finals against three-time defending champions City Oilers. There could be so many wrongs to right Power in today's Game Five at YMCA. Power shot only 17 of 61 from the field and were outrebounded by a whopping 36-50 margin. It was humbling. On the other hand, KIU coach Hamza Nyambogo will feel like he has fortuitously landed on the right codes and rotations to propel his team to a first final. Besides restricting Power to just four first-quarter points, his reinstatement of Sudi Ulanga (181-PG) and Norman Blick (199-F/G-83) dug his team from a hole and only more of the same will do. The pair combined for 10 points as KIU stormed to a 14-4 start. The game was done before Power could pick a fight, perhaps one with themselves. While all of Blick's seven points came in the opening period, Ulanga added a further 12 points in 30 minutes. Those numbers stripped Nyambogo's rotation bare. Ulanga, scorer of a team high 17 points in 30 minutes in Game Two was restricted to 11 minutes and two points, same as Blick who played five minutes in Game Three which KIU lost to slide into a 2-1 deficit.
