What a coincidence that all visitors won their games.

UPDF has finally registered their first victory this season after two consecutive losses. The win is especially important as it came on the road game in , where they edged Our Saviour (0-4) 55-53 on Friday. UPDF forced 22 Our Saviour turnovers. 28 personal fouls committed by Our Saviour helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Stephen Wokorach stepped up and scored 17 points for the winners and Dulton Mutawe chipped in 9 points and 11 rebounds. The best for the losing side was forward Steven Mwesigye with 8 points and 11 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. UPDF (1-2) left bottom position moving up to ninth place. It was Our Saviour's fourth loss in a row. They still close the standings with four games lost. They share the position with Falcons. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Bottom-ranked Falcons (0-4) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their fourth consecutive match to eighth ranked Ndejje (2-2) 61-44. Maker Deng (-94) nailed a double-double by scoring 21 points and 18 rebounds (perfect from the field making all nine shots !!!) for the winning side and David Okello accounted for 11 points. Ndejje's coach used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Forward Benard Okumu came up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 rebounds for Falcons in the defeat. Ndejje moved-up to fifth place, which they share with UCU Canons and City Oilers. Falcons at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. They share the position with Our Saviour. Ndejje will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Falcons will play again against Ndejje (#6) and hope to get finally their first victory.
10th ranked UPDF (1-2) was outscored at home by eighth ranked Ndejje (2-2) with the biggest margin this round 50-30 on Wednesday night. The best player for the winners was Maker Deng who had a double-double by scoring 15 points and 13 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). At the other side the best for losing team was Stephen Wokorach who recorded 7 points and 8 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Ndejje moved-up to fifth place, which they share with UCU Canons and City Oilers. Loser UPDF dropped to the ninth position with two games lost. Ndejje will meet Falcons (#11) in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. UPDF will have a break next round.

Falcons - Ndejje 44-61

Bottom-ranked Falcons (0-4) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their fourth consecutive match to eighth ranked Ndejje (2-2) 61-44.

They dominated on the defensive end, holding Falcons to just 5 points in third quarter. They outrebounded Falcons 44-26 including 29 on the defensive glass. Maker Deng (-94) nailed a double-double by scoring 21 points and 18 rebounds (perfect from the field making all nine shots !!!) for the winning side and David Okello (-98) accounted for 11 points. Ndejje's coach used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Forward Benard Okumu came up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 rebounds and forward Olobo Moses (-82) added 9 points respectively for Falcons in the defeat. Ndejje moved-up to fifth place, which they share with UCU Canons and City Oilers. Falcons at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. They share the position with Our Saviour.
