UGANDA : Silverbacks: Oilers-KIU clash put off

KAMPALA-The anticipated clash between City Oilers and KIU Titans earlier scheduled for this evening has been postponed to pave way for another warm up game for the Silverbacks who are preparing for the Afro-basketball Championship.
The game which is again expected to be played against a select team of the top division players comes as a welcome boost for Mandy Juruni.
The Silverbacks coach had requested for another warm-up game after Monday’s 80-68 win over the select side before the team departs on Sunday.
“I am sure this team can perform a lot better than you have seen today. We never got out of our shell and there were a lot of nerves from the home based players who were eager to prove themselves. May be we can fix one or two games before we leave,” stated Juruni.
Stanley Ocitti impressed with 17 points in his first game in national team colours while Kassim Nangwere and Samuel Mukooza chipped in with 16 and 13 points respectively.
The Silverbacks have had low key preparations after the federation cancelled plans to have the team camp in Turkey because of lack of funds.
