THE 14th Abraham Lincoln tournament has already produced several upsets. In the event played on running time, 2005 MTN Basketball League women champions A-1 Challenge were the first to fall when lesser-fancied Amazon Rhino tripped them 33-35. A-1 Challenge players reacted as if they had lost a final.

Nabumali, who trounced 2003 women champions Makerere Sparks 38-24, produced the second upset. Carol Nantalo and Carthy Atyang (Sparks players in the league) chose to play for their former high school team and outclassed the university side.

Kyambogo Warriors beat defending champions United States International University (ISIU) of Kenya 56-45, an indication that a Ugandan team can at last win the trophy.
