Today in the Uganda National Basketball league, UCU Canons will battle KIU Titans in an all university match. The two teams have already played 5 matches a piece, but UCU remain unbeaten while KIU have lost thrice.
KIU’s first game was against a university side that is Kampala University and they managed to score 106 points, the highest that we have seen in this season. The question will be if we will see that happening today again.
The 2017 season finalists, KIU Titans on the back of defeating red hot JKL Dolphins (68:54) who on Wednesday night beat defending champions City Oilers in one of the most emphatic games we have watched this season.
UCU Canons with their youthful and energetic side will look to extend their unbeaten run tonight given that they have shown resilience this campaign. Against City Oilers, they won in a game that went into overtime twice.
The two sides have faced off in many occasions, but in the last five games, UCU Canons have lost all games to KIU Titans and the big question will be if they can use their current form to spring up a win given their on form that has seen them go 5 games unbeaten.
Should UCU win today’s game, they could be on the verge to walk home with two wins as their star player David Kongor Deng will be going up against Jonathan Kambala of Pemba Warriors and JKL Dolphin’s Daniel Monoja for the best player of the month.
KIU Titans will rely so much on highest scoring guard Denise Balungu, Michael Bwanga, Collin Kasujja and Suudi Uwanga while UCU Canons will be depending on player of the month nominee David Kangor Deng, Fadhil Chuma, Twesigye Zeramula, and Ater Isaiah.
