UGANDA : KIU Titans losing grip after second straight loss

KIU 48-51 Heaters
Falcons 67-30 Vegeterian
Stormers 63-71 Eagles
W: A1 49-51 KCC
W: Amazon 46-64 Gladiators

There is definitely life for Victoria University Heaters after they lost Salim Ali and Michael Makiadi to KIU Titans. The controversy was temporarily settled on Saturday as Heaters edged KIU 51-48 in the Airtel National Basketball League at YMCA court. Former Warriors point guard Albert Aciko (12 points) and Derrick Mbusi (11 and five rebounds) delivered glory.
This was their biggest scalp to-date as they remain seventh with 6-7 record, behind Miracle Eagles. The latter are now 7-6 after beating Giant Stormers 71-63. However, Brian Wathum was the happiest man as Heaters won back to back games.
“We have been working on improving our defence and I think we are one of the best teams in that area,” Wathum said.
Makiadi had a game-high 15 points and seven rebounds but the telling stat came in the free throw column as KIU went 10 for 23.
KIU Nimrod Kaboha, now 9-4 after two successive losses, cannot wait for the university to be opened this Friday for the 2012/13 academic year. Kenyans Richard Osano Omondi and Brian Wati are away. When they return, the maths in the top five positions will have become more complicated.
