“He has heart to go in were its not possible, sometimes he makes hasty decisions like rushing in, he needs some kind of maturity, but if he wants to win he will win that’s the good thing about him" Norman Blick on Ivan Enabu.
W: KCCA 53-50 UCU
(Both series tied at 1-1)

Falcon have failed to win two games in a row since their quarter finals against Ndejje University Angels as they lost game four of the National Basketball finals to Warriors 70-74.
The win puts Warriors at 2-2 in a game that Norman Blick stole the show with 26 points for the 2009 champions, Steven Omony’s 19 too little to match him.
Omony deserted his team when it mattered most as he was fouled out on the fourth quarter together with Warriors’ 7 ft Sam Gombya
Gombya with 10 points and 17 rebounds showed signs of improved confidence as he tried to make his presence felt in several ball contests.
Omony (19) Ramanthan Abdullah (12) and Phillip Ameny (15) were influential for the six time champions
Falcons coach Gad Etau was furious about lots of decisions match official Baker Kyambadde and John Omondi called against his side.
But he was quick to admit that silly decisions cost them the game, but lessons have been learnt.
Ivan Enabu still chasing for his maiden league medal branded Falcons a fourth quarter team.
“We are not good at rushing in the beginning, Falcons is a fourth quarter team, we wait for the fourth quarter when they play best and we execute,” said Enabu.
Omony has been the one looked at in times when Abdullah or Ameny lose their grip.
“As an individual am doing the best I can, if my team mates score am happy for that. I think everyone on this team is doing the best that they can,” said Umony.
