UGANDA : Falcons, Oilers in mid-week NBL action

Falcons Vs Vegetarian 6:30PM
City Oilers Vs Charging Rhinos 8:30PM
Falcons have not hit any humps in their start to this year’s National Basketball League season partly due to the opposition they have faced or are facing (if you like) thus far.
The six-time champions tipped off their campaign against league freshers Sharing Youths, played Charging Rhinos on the weekend. Both teams were very much on the receiving end of atleast 85 points from the ruthless Falcons.
Vegetarian is next in the queue this evening at YMCA and their fate might not be different. Syrus Kiviiri has scored atleast 20 points in each of the games and being a natural scorer with an inherent desire to put up numbers, Vegetarian will have trouble limiting the shooting guard let alone stopping him.
With last season’s regular season MVP, Ben Okumu still struggling to find the hands in the post that got him the accolade, Vegetarian might have to go through other options in Grace Adra, John Otto and Vinnie Jurua to cause any kind of scare to the Falcons.
Unlike most of the game days, both tonight’s match-ups will be between men’s sides. The second game of the evening will see Charging Rhinos who shocked UCU Canons in their season opening game and blown out by Falcons on the weekend face defending champions City Oilers.
After a shock loss to UCU on the opening night, City Oilers have won two in succession including the 82-81 edge of Power. As Nkumba Marines will testify, Oilers have got no more room for complacence.
The team sheets and stats show Vegetarian and Charging Rhinos have got no chance in their respective encounters.
