TANZANIA : Bugando Warriors Humiliate St Francis in Basketball

BUGANDO Warriors boosted their chances of triumphing in this year's Mwanza Regional Basketball League with a 64-28 drubbing of St. Francis at the former's venue earlier this week.
Mwanza Regional Basketball Association (MRBA) has organized the league with a view to promote the sport in the region, apart from putting the participating players in great shape ahead of major domestic and regional competitions.
Bugando Warriors, currently one of the league favourites, were impressive in almost all four quarters of the game and they gave their inexperienced opponents little room to display whatever tricks at their disposal and ultimately the former came out with the comfortable win.
St. Francis, for that matter, continued to experience a frustrating spell in the league as they have experienced a third straight defeat in their campaign to consequently settle for an outsider status in the title race.
Bugando Warriors, an off shoot of the region's basketball giants, Bugando Planet, have so far enjoyed a promising run in the tournament, having defied the odds to edge a couple of the league's big guns to substantiate their ability to successfully lay hands on silverware.
In one of Bugando Warriors' memorable exploits in this year's event, they edged their elder brothers, Bugando Planet, 58-57 in a tightly contested October 27 duel that unveiled the former's increasing tenacity.
In another match held the same day, Butimba Spiders scrapped through to a 48-40 victory over Bugando Heat, which is yet another Bugando Planet offshoot.
Despite battling hard in the game, Bugando Heat failed to get the better of the more experienced Spiders, whose strong performances in a couple of the past games have proved the team is also keen on making the most of its participation in this year's event.
Spiders had an emphatic 62-16 victory over Eagle in the October 28 game played at the former's venue located a few kilometers away from the Mwanza city centre and that certainly issued a strong warning to the rest of the competitors in the event.
Other teams competing in the league are Dolphin Pasiansi, Dragon, Saint Augustine University of Tanzania (SAUT) Stars and SAUT Warriors. Apart from serving as an opportunity for the Mwanza basketball players to enjoy regular participation in the sport, the league is also a timely build up for the players ahead of the Robert Cup that will be held later this month.
