UGANDA : Owili shines in All-Star


He had shown in recent weeks that he could become the next darling of the crowds that throng YMCA court every week.

On Friday night, UCU Canons’ Desmond Owili lit up the annual Sprite All-Star Gala scoring a game-high 20 points. All his points were slam dunks, mostly double-handed, as the league newcomer led Coca Cola to a 104-86 rout of Sprite in the late game.
Fans had to wait till after mid-night to complete the full dose of what Owili and his teammate Richard Omondi (17) were capable of when found in space under the hoop. Unluckily, it wasn’t the most thrilling game as Sudi Ulanga underlined the dominance of coach Nick Natuhereza’s side with 19 points.

Sprite never recovered from a slow start even if Stephen Omony fetched 15 points. Winning, though, was never the big deal in the fun event used to mark the mid-season break.
