Rhinos see off Marines for first season win

Abel Omoding scored 11 points (7 in the fourth quarter) to lead Charging Rhinos to a 58-52 win over Nkumba Marines Wednesday night at YMCA. Fahmy Seba added game high 13 points as Rhinos posted their first win of the season. “We had to step up our defense and they succumbed to the pressure we applied” Ronnie Mutebi said.

With Nkumba trailing 21-16 going into the third quarter, a 16-2 run for Marines took the former champions up 32-23 with 5:10 to end the period but Rhinos (1-4) responded with an 11 points spurt holding Nkumba scoreless in the 5 minutes closing out the frame up 34-32. Nkumba’s big man, Brian Sivach (8points, 8 rebounds) opened the fourth quarter scoring with an and1 to spark a 9-2 run for Marines (1-5). Rhinos rallied back and tied the game at 46 with 3:03, Omoding hitting the game tying 3-pointer. Nkumba temporarily went up through Wynard Kigobe’s free throw before Isaac Kamya (9 points) knocked down a go-ahead 3-ball with 2:13 and Rhinos never trailed again.
Nkumba edged the boards 26-24 but were forced into 27 turnovers because of the full court press and the man-to-man Rhinos employed. “We didn’t compose ourselves when under pressure” Nkumba’s coach , Timothy Odeke noted. Emmanuel Nyabuto scored team high 12 points that went with 7 boards for Nkumba. Point guard, Shabani Ramadhani (9 points) fouled out with 5 minutes to the final buzzer. “Obviously it did affect us. Our bench is small. They have a relatively bigger one and rotated it better” Odeke on Ramadhani’s fouling out.

In the women’s division, Gladiators beat MUK Sparks 37-27. Stella Nikuzze score 9 points and picked 9 rebounds to lead Gladfiators (1-4). Linda Wefila and Joan Birungi added 7 points apiece.
