On a chilly evening at the YMCA court in Wandegeya, both KIU Titans and Betway Power came for a deciding game 5 of the semi-final play-offs knowing that this was a do-or-die encounter, the team that loses goes back to the drawing board until next season, joining the likes of Our Saviour, Pemba Warriors, Falcons, and UCU Canons. And a win automatically qualifies the team for a place in the Zone V tournament for next year, at a venue yet to be confirmed. After a conclusive game 4 loss in the semi-final play-offs, BetWay Power came back as the more hungry team. They got off the blocks very strongly from the get go, and managing to end the first quarter of the game the better team with a 15-11 score line. KIU Titans looked unfazed with Power's prowess in the first quarter, little did they know that Power was taking this encounter more than serious. Try as they could, the Titans could not stop a focused Power team that used the fast breaks in the best way possible to condemn Titans to a paltry 10 points in the second quarter, and the half ending 21-35 to BetWay Power. If their was complacency in the KIU Titans team because of the way they started off slowly, this was the time Nyambogo needed to seriously address it. On and off the bench, KIU look the better team, most especially with the experienced players they have got on board. KIU needed to handle Power's individual play that sometimes really works, the fast breaks, and full court press. Getting into the second half, KIU Titans needed to close the 14 point gap and see that they outscore Power after-wards. From the get go, they looked a resurgent team managing to put on 24 points to Power's 20 in the third quarter, cutting the lead to a 10 point game to get to the fourth quarter decider. The fourth quarter looked to be KIU's with everything going their way apart from the free throws that they will live to regret. Only if they had put in the free throws, but nevertheless, they took the fourth quarter 27-20, but at the end of it failed to win the game by 3 points, and thus Power managing to cruise to the finals with a 72-75 score-line, and thus joins City Oilers for the 2016 FUBA NBL Play-off final.
