Ndejje Angels impressive against resilient Tomahawks.

It quite is excusable for they that doubted the dark-horse credentials of this year’s league National Basketball League (NBL) debutants, Ndejje Angels. Majority of the 500 fans that witnessed this mouthwatering game regarded it a gorgeous surprise.

Not much was left for the tarmac in Wandegeya at the YMCA court as Ndejje University based side registered an impressive 80-68 point win at the expense of the struggling but resilient UPDF Tomahawks.

The game was so hard to call especially during the first quarter with the Angels wining the quarter 18-16. This provoked a lot of belief for Walker Obedi’s Ndejje Angels side but dismay for his adversary.

The army side however pulled back in the second quarter to register a 20-20 point quarter tie thanks to the brilliant shooting of their small forward Henry Okoth. The Angels however still led the game with two points heading into the half time break.

The gulf in class between the two sides was to be established in the third quarter of the game as the Angels forced so many turnovers off the Tomahawks. The University based side would go ahead to win the quarter 21-13.
Innocent Ochera the best point guard on the day for the Ndejje Angels went ahead to provide the holy grail at fulltime with 18 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists with Salim Kisily adding 10 points, 6 rebounds and a single assist.

The Tomahawks head coach Baker Kyambadde seemed quite disappointed at fulltime in his interview with the press. He however was quick to direct a lot of praise to his opponents and admitted they were more aggressive in the entire game.

Indeed their aggression was there for everyone to see but their game too was tidy. They converted 24 points from turnovers the most on the night in comparison to the 14 points from the army side.
Donald Blick and Moses Muhumuza kept their heads up to oppose the upset with 10 points and 8 points respectively but the outcome was not to be suppressed.

The UPDF Tomahawks currently stand 9th on the NBL table with 4 wins and 11 loses out of the 15 games played. The Ndejje Angels on the other hand have registered a balanced equation of 6 wins and 6 losses out of their 12 games played.
