UCU Canons have completed a season double over JKL Dolphins after winning 80-54 at the MTN Arena in Lugogo, while Ndejje University owe their win to a strong second quarter.
JKL Dolphins 54-80 UCU Canons
(Q1 : 15-21, Q2: 8-24, Q3:17-09 ,Q4: 14-26)
Kampala University Eagles 69-79 Ndejje University Angels
(Q1: 18-10, Q2: 12-26, Q3: 19-17, Q4: 20-23 )
UCU Canons, who were recovering from a loss to Betway Power last Friday, in their season double over the Dolphins, are thankful to a stellar defensive shift from Captain Titus Lual, and David Kongor Deng and Peter Sifuma with each scoring a game high 12 points, with the latter’s points coming from the bench. Daniel “Dudus” Monoja tried to rally the Dolphins on with a double-double (13 REB and 11PTS) but it proved less than enough. It is now a shift in tides for Dolphins who fail to go top of the log at least until the weekend.
Earlier at the MTN Arena, just like the UCU Canons, Ndejje University Angels did complete a season double, but this time over Kampala University Eagles with Innocent Ochera and Samuel Ajak, their top scorers, combining for 36 points off the bench. The Angels had a whitewash second quarter outscoring the Eagles 26-12 and it proved decisive at the end of the day.
