UGANDA : Lions Face Uphill Task in Tie Against the Warriors

by Charles Mutebi

IT is not about to get any easier for the KCC Lions as they continue the early stages of their debut season in the MTN men's Basketball Division 1 league. They have an uphill task against Kyambogo Warriors at Lugogo tonight, after losing their opener to Miracle by one point.
As is common with promoted sides, the Lions' only aim is to survive relegation. But they will have to get good results against top opposition to succeed and Lions' coach has hope.
"I know the Warriors are a good team but I believe we can beat them," Baker Sande told the New Vision. "We were very unlucky to lose against Miracle but we are going to give everything to win this match," he added.
The Warriors also lost convincingly to Miracle in their first match. They were far from looking like the 2007 play-offs finalists as Miracle tore them apart.
On the women's front, reigning champions KCC Leopards face an easy task against the Amazon Rhinos, while in the men's division two, Vegetarians take on Bush Courts.
Meanwhile, Aloysius Byamukama adds that St. Mary's Boarding School Kitende was the most affected boys' side after the National Schools Basketball Association launched a crackdown yesterday on ineligible players at the ongoing national schools championships at Mary Hill in Mbarara.
Kitende was left with only seven players after Michael Nsereko (Senior Six) and Felix Nizeye (Senior Five) failed to present the documents that identify them as legible players at the tournament.
