UGANDA : Angels seek another upset
Ndejje University Angels have mastered the knack of throwing a spanner in the works in regard to the final seeding of the Airtel National Basketball League.
While they comfortably lie sixth and will appear in the eight-team play-offs for the second year running, they are also shaping the destiny of the teams above them.
Their victories over leaders UCU Canons and champions Riham Warriors, who lie third, and pushing City Oilers to the limit have showed what they can do.DMark Power wouldn’t have missed the memo. The feel-good factor must have returned to Power ahead of their game against Ndejje at the Lugogo MTN Arena today. Despite not playing their best game, Power beat Warriors 73-67 on Friday. The most impressive thing about that result was Joseph Ikong playing well again.
Ikong, their captain, scored 16, a tally matched by Ben Komakech, in his best game in months something that has hurt Power.
The prize for a win tonight is something Power would. It will take them within touching distance of leaders UCU who have 15-2 record.
“We will treat every game as it comes,” forward Isaac Afidra said, opting to respect every team they face. Power are now at 13-2 with the game. However, the five-time champions still have to face Victoria University Heaters in a game to be rescheduled.
