Kenya: Ulinzi Warriors Gun Down Lakesiders

FORMER national champions Ulinzi Warriors beat Lakeside 84-64 in a premier league basketball show at Nyayo National Stadium gymnasium. The soldiers took a deserved 23-5 lead in the first quarter and hanged up 23-13 in the second quarter against the visiting Kisumu side that had given away two ties on a walk over.
After the breather, the Lakeside staged a remarkable rally that saw them take the third quarter posting a 20-19 advantage before collapsing again 22-16 in the last. Willian Otieno nailed 18 points, Mike Tanui shot 14 and James Omune 12 to lead Ulinzi. The losers had 12 points from Samuel Gekara and 11 from Dennis Nyabuti. Sprite Storms whipped Mennonite 55-27 in the women's match up.
The victors broke off a close 29-24 advantage at the break to win convincingly. Susan Akinyi shot 20 point and Lynette Mukri had 10. Belind Okoth made the losers 9. Lower division leaders Nakuru Club beat Emyba 74-59 as Ariel Okal shot 23 points while Collins Ochino replied with a similar number of points for Emyba.
