UGANDA : Falcons fly into Power lines
KIU Vs Nkumba, 6:30 pm
Power Vs Falcons, 8:30 pm
After having a rocky start to their season last year, Falcons club chairman, Denis Mbidde said they could get over the poor start to the season.
However, it did not go well all season as Falcons missed out on the playoffs for the first time and were rather involved in relegation battles.
Early this season, Mbidde played down Falcons title ambitions.
He said, "we dont expect to win the title this season".
The expectations may be have to change with the most successful club in the local game sitting third, below last years finalists in the top division.
Falcons (8-2) return to YMCA this evenning to face off DMark Power in the Airtel National Basketball League as the two teams complete their first round schedule.
Power (9-1) go into this game off a 69-55 win against Heaters on Wednesday.
Isaac Lugudde and Collin Mukiza scored 11 points each as most players were on court under 20 minutes.
Joseph Ikong (family issues) and Isaac Afidra sat out. "The beauty of our team is that we are deep" Isaac Lugudde said.
However, against Falcons, Ikong will be missed on both ends of the floor.
Falcons have won the last four games behind big performances from Ameny, Omony, Elungat and Katerega. "We respect our opponents. On any given night any one can lose but we just have to ensure that it is not 'any given night'.
We have trained for victory and we are all ready" Power's guard, Lugudde told Kawowo Sports.
