Ndejje University Angels survived Edwin Katerega’s game high 22 points & 15 rebounds and held off KIU Titans 82-78 in overtime Sunday night at YMCA.
Ndejje led through all the quarters and seemed to be in position to wrap up the win in forty minutes until 37 seconds to end the fourth when Bol Akol tied the game at 67 from the top of the mountain to push fairly offensively open game into overtime.
With KIU trailing 71-76 with 2:10 in overtime, Chris Omanye (19 points, 5 rebounds) scored the next 5 points to tie the game at 76 with 1:16. Katerega took KIU up with a throw but Jonah Otim (10 points) drained a go-ahead corner 3-pointer to restore Ndejje’s lead with over 40 seconds. Three throws from Otim (2) and Tumusiime (1) sealed the win.
Four other players reached double figures for Angels (6-3). Brian Ouma scored 18 points (team high), Geoffrey Soro 15 points & 13 rebounds, Steven Okias 14 points and Francis Tumusiime had 13.
