UGANDA : Uspa journalists prove they can play basketball after all
Prior to the game, Isaac Afidra wryly told journalists he couldn’t wait to see them take on the Celebrities team at last Friday’s All-Star game. But by the end of their 12-10 win, Uspa had proved they could play the game. Felix Eupal was the pick of the bunch with a series a lay ups that drove YMCA wild but the clown prince of the evening was Michael Kigozi who shot from downtown with what appeared like a wicked throw. Hiphop star Navio was good at crossovers, and nothing nothing else, while KS Alpha huffed and puffed but to no great effect. Patrick Kanyomozi was like a fish out of sea when he stepped on court and could only admire Eupal’s ability inside and outside the paint. In sport, the old adage is that ‘victory hides a multitude of sins while defeat always requires an explanation.’ Uspa are thus not required to make an explanation. The All-Star game was further proof that basketball is going places with a remarkable turn up.
