City Oilers face off with Falcons at YMCA

YMCA arena, tomorrow, will play host to two 6 time champions as City Oilers face off with Falcons in Uganda National basketball League.

City Oilers who have won the league 6 times in a row will be hoping to beat up on old champions and newly promoted side Falcons given that the latter just fought their way back into the league.

City Oilers come into this game from a back of beating last season’s runners up Betway Power in an enthralling game that ended 69:66 while Falcons come into this game after losing to Sharing Youth 59:63 on their opening night, and will be hoping the face off at YMCA is a different affair

The Falcons will be depending on key players Douglas Uwizera, Karoro Francis, Point Guard Said Khamdis and forward Asiku Dickson.

Jimmy Enabu, Steven Omony, Landry Indikumana will hope that they can have a much better showing tomorrow unlike in the season opener and replicate the kind of performance of game one MVP Ivan Muhwezi who may be a doubt for the game.

For Falcons, their height maybe a disadvantage as they play the Oilers who are not only tall but also make up for much in terms of grit.

Falcons struggle against Sharing Youth on their opening night.

 

The efficient passing of the ball by City Oilers and their scoring maybe very dangerous for the Falcons who are still struggling to get together and play as a unit.

Former Champions Falcons maybe heavily punished by City Oilers because of their power defensive set up. They will need to be wary of Drileba Tony and Francis who shoot from out of the D for fun.

The game between the two champions promises to be a high scoring encounter but City Oilers may have an edge because of the fact that they have played together for a while.
