UCU Lady Canons are doing what they have done over the years - cruising through the league. With a game against the struggling Gladiators on the tap, the Lady Canons were always going to improve their record.
The university side blew out Gladiators 100-40 on Friday evening at the MTN Arena. Center, Peace Procovia, who is averaging league high 19.7 points and 9.7 rebounds returned with a bang. She poured in game high 26 points and picked 16 rebounds to lead the way for Lady Canons (8-0). Forward, Purity Adhiambo added 19 points and 16 boards, Moreen Amoding added 20 points and Francis Nabulobi had 10.
Guard, Stella Nikuze scored season high 16 points, picked 10 rebounds and made 6 steals against 11 turnovers to lead the way for Gladiators (2-8). Joan Muchiruku added 13 points in a losing effort as Gladiators lost a fourth successive game since the 37-27 win over MUK Sparks a month back. Charline Kirungi picked 12 rebounds.
Gladiators have let in an average of 74 points in the four losses (to Rangers, Stormers, Leopards and now Lady Canons) while scoring 34.8 points. Gladiators committed 52 turnovers and were crushed on the glass 58-40. Lady Canons scored 100 or more points for the third time this season.
Lady Canons play Magic Stormers next before facing off with KCCA Leopards in two weeks. Gladiators have A1 Challenge next on their schedule.
