UGANDA : Basketball Set to Award the Finest

The basketball fraternity will tomorrow award the outstanding players from the 2014 basketball season in what is expected to be a glamorous function at Sheraton hotel's Rwenzori ball room, writes FELIX EUPAL.
It has been such a long wait that some fans had started giving up on the traditional Fuba dinner. But there was no way Fuba could let 2014 go without commemoration.
The 2014 MVP was a very competitive year, save for City Oilers' whitewash of Tiger Head Power in the play-offs finals, which is why the regular season Most Valuable Player (MVP) gong has many talking and is already stirring emotions among the fans on social media.
The Observer got hold of the list of nominees and besides the play-off list which is obvious, the regular season MVP list for men raises a few eyebrows.
It is shocking that Falcons guard Cyrus Kiviri doesn't make the cut. Neither does UCU Lady Canons' Judith Nansobya in the ladies category, yet her back court play and three-point accuracy kept the team alive in so many games.
For the play-offs MVP award, it is a close call between City Oilers' Ben Komakech, Kami Kabenge and Jimmy Enabu. The trio turned on the style during the play-offs in fighting from 2-0 down to beat UCU Canons 3-2 before humiliating Power 4-0 in the finals.
Komakech was the brains behind the comeback; Kabenge was heart and soul while Enabu was the wheels that run the team. But when the dust settles, Komakech is my pick.
