The Zuku University Basketball League (ZUBL) tipped off three weeks ago at Makerere, then went to UCU and on the weekend, action headed west to Uganda Martyrs University (UMU), Nkozi.
With Uganda Christian University, Kampala International University and Ndejje University taking part in the UCU Invitational Basketball tournament on the same weekend, there were just two games – both between Makerere University and the host Uganda Martyrs University.UMU were beaten in both games on their own floor. In fact the ladies games was a no contest as MUK were far to superior as most of the players on the team feature for the National Basketball League side MUK Sparks apart from forward Claire Lamuu (KCCA Leopards) and Sylvia Nakazibwe (A1 Challenge).
Makerere’s 24-14 first halftime advantage over UMU helped the men overcome the resilient hosts who were a handful in the second half and evenly matched Makerere. Tony Drileba led MUK with 13 points and 6 rebounds. Richard Ongom who also features for NBL outfit Vegetarian added 11 points while Daniel Kawesa and Daniel Oporo grabbed 11 and 10 rebounds respectively. Daniels Babara and Sam Wacha scored 8 points apiece to lead UMU.  Mark Mayanja added 5 points and 11 rebounds.
Meanwhile, Claire Lamunu had a blast scoring game high 23 points and picking 12 rebounds as MUK Ladies blew out UMU. Joy Chemtai added 16 points and 5 assists. Shina Asimwe chipped in with 11 points.
Kush Nakazzi scored 7 for UMU. The home fans who cheered every UMU basket had nothing to celebrate in the after three periods as the host went scoreless in the fourth quarter.
