Geofrey Soro
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 3 rounds. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

NBL top team - Betway Power (18-3) managed to deliver another win on Friday. This time they beat fifth ranked Pemba Warriors (10-8) 68-59. Betway Power forced 21 Pemba Warriors turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Power forward Geofrey Soro (-92) scored 13 points (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and the former international forward Joseph Ikong (193-85) chipped in 11 points and 6 assists during the contest. DR Congolese power forward Amisi Saidi (-87) responded with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Betway Power have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 18-3 record. Pemba Warriors lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the fourth place with eight games lost. Betway Power are looking forward to face UCU Canons (#5) in Kampala in the next round. Pemba Warriors will play against Our Saviour and are hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
The game in supposed to be also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Pemba Warriors (10-8) played at the court of 7th ranked Sharing Youth (8-12). Pemba Warriors smashed Sharing Youth 84-59. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sharing Youth. DR Congolese power forward Amisi Saidi (-87) notched a double-double by scoring 16 points and 10 rebounds to lead the effort and Syrus Kiviiri supported him with 18 points and 5 rebounds. Even 12 points by forward Caesar Kizito (-88) did not help to save the game for Sharing Youth. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Pemba Warriors moved-up to fourth place. Sharing Youth at the other side dropped to the eighth position with 12 games lost. Pemba Warriors will play against Our Saviour (#9) in the next round where they are favorite. Sharing Youth will play against UCU Canons in Kampala and hopes to get back on the winning track.
12th ranked UPDF (4-16) was outscored at home by third ranked City Oilers (16-4) with the biggest margin this round 85-44 on Saturday night. The best player for the winners was Landry Ndikumana who had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 16 rebounds (on 10-of-11 shooting from the field). Moses Olobo produced 12 points and 8 rebounds for the hosts. City Oilers have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to second place. UPDF lost sixth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom position with 16 games lost. City Oilers will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. UPDF will play against KCCA Lions (#10) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Kampala: City Oilers (#3) and Charging Rhinos (#11). Charging Rhinos were smashed at home by 32 points 64-96. James Okello orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 17 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. Charging Rhinos' coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. City Oilers have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion (16-4) moved-up to second place. Charging Rhinos lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keep the eleventh position with 16 games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
