The absence of star shooter Salim Ali (suspended for four games) could not deter Nkumba Marines from handing Uganda Christian University (UCU) Canons a fourth League defeat.

The former champions beat Canons 83-76. Canons star guard Ivan Enabu sunk 17 points, but Marines had a better collective effort, with four players in double figures. Julius Lutwama had a game high 18 points while Carl Mugalu added 16 with Paul Mwaka and Boniface Okello contributing 15 and 14 points respectively.

Sadolin Power, who were playing for the first time since the death of Wilbrod Oketcho 11 days ago, recorded a morale boosting 76-68 victory over Gulu Hawks in Gulu on Saturday.In the women’ league, A1 Challenge maintained their perfect start with a 70-60 win over Lady Bucks and KIU Rangers romped to a 60-22 win over minnows Makerere Cubs. Victoria Lakers lost 39-56 to school-side Nabisunsa.
