There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in NBL.

The game between third ranked UCU Canons (11-5) and eleventh ranked Falcons (4-9) was the most important one in the last round on Sunday night. UCU Canons were defeated by Falcons in a tough game in Kampala 68-75. Falcons looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Benard Okumu who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds. Forward Vinnie Jurua (-89) contributed with 17 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners. Forward Brian Namake (-90) answered with 7 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists for UCU Canons. UCU Canons' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Falcons moved-up to tenth place. UCU Canons at the other side dropped to the fourth position with five games lost. Falcons are looking forward to face UPDF (#11) in the next round. UCU Canons will play against the league's leader Power (#1) having rather not much hope for a victory.
The game in Kampala supposed to be also worth to mention about. 5th ranked Ndejje (10-6) played at the court of sixth ranked City Oilers (10-4). City Oilers smashed Ndejje 92-50. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Ndejje. It was a great evening for the former international guard Jimmy Enabu (187-88) who led his team to a victory scoring 16 points and 4 assists. James Okello helped adding 12 points and 9 rebounds. At the losing side Maker Deng (-94) responded with 11 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion moved-up to fifth place. Ndejje at the other side dropped to the sixth position with six games lost. City Oilers will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Ndejje will play against the league's second-placed Pemba Warriors (#2) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game between 9th ranked Sharing Youth (5-15) and fourth ranked KIU Titans (11-4) in on Monday ended with biggest points difference. Guests from Kampala outscored Sharing Youth 86-30. It was a quality performance for Chris Omanye who led the winners and scored 15 points. Malek Lino came up with 8 points for Sharing Youth in the defeat. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. KIU Titans moved-up to third place. Sharing Youth lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with 15 games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
