Joseph Ikong
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Fourth-ranked KIU Titans (8-4) made lots of trouble for first ranked Betway Power (12-1) on Friday. Betway Power managed to secure only two-point victory 67-65. However their fans expected easier game. Betway Power forced 21 KIU Titans turnovers. Strangely KIU Titans outrebounded Betway Power 42-0 including a 32- advantage in defensive rebounds. The best player for the winners was Geofrey Soro who had a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds. The former international forward Joseph Ikong (193-85) chipped in 15 points and 7 rebounds. Guard Micheal Bwanga produced 16 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for the guests. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Betway Power have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 12-1 record. KIU Titans at the other side keep the fourth place with four games lost. Betway Power are looking forward to face Sharing Youth (#9) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. KIU Titans will play against UCU Canons (#8) and are hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Bottom-ranked KCC Lions managed to get the second consecutive victory. This time newly promoted KCC Lions outleveled eleventh-ranked Charging Rhinos 83-64. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 19-point difference proves that KCC Lions was well-prepared to that game. Francis Mbuyi orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 12 rebounds. Brian Waters contributed with 27 points (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) for the winners. Forward Abel Omomgin (-89) replied with 20 points for Charging Rhinos. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. KCC Lions (4-10) moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Charging Rhinos and UPDF. KCC Lions will play against higher ranked Our Saviour (#5) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Charging Rhinos will play against UPDF (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Betway Power delivered the twelfth victory on Sunday night. This time they crushed 5th ranked Our Saviour (6-7) 89-56. Worth to mention a quality performance of Geofrey Soro who helped to win the game recording 11 points and 8 rebounds. Wilberforce Pirwoth responded with 24 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Betway Power have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 12-1 record. Our Saviour lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with seven games lost. They share the position with JKL Dolphins. Betway Power will meet Sharing Youth (#9) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Our Saviour will play against KCC Lions (#11) and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in . It ended with only two-point home defeat of 12th ranked KCC Lions (4-10) to sixth ranked JKL Dolphins (6-7) 68-66 on Sunday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of KCC Lions. The winners were led by Ivan Lumanyika who had that evening a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds. JKL Dolphins' coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. JKL Dolphins moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Our Saviour. Newly promoted KCC Lions dropped to the tenth position with ten games lost. JKL Dolphins' next round opponent will be Ndejje (#7). KCC Lions will play against Our Saviour and hope to win that game.
We should mention about the upset which took place in , where 7th ranked Sharing Youth (5-8) lost at home to tenth ranked UPDF (4-10) 64-70 on Saturday.

UPDF maintains tenth position with 4-10 record, which they share with Charging Rhinos and KCC Lions. Sharing Youth lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth place with eight games lost.
