UGANDA : City Oilers Surprised By Good Showing

Kampala — The rise of City Oil basketball team has been one of rising and rising higher, going on to become champions every season in every division they participated in since 2011.
Even when their performance pedigree was there for all to see, very few people expected them to shine in the country's top flight league, the Airtel National Basketball league.
As things stand, they are in the top four, a position that guarantees them a playoff berth and a shot at winning the championship in their debut year.
A few weeks ago they registered a morale boosting win against table leaders and title hopefuls D-Mark Power and followed it up with a well-earned win against troubled Miracles. The club management however is aware that even though they surpassed their season expectations, the league has not ended and that anything can happen. Silver Rugambwa, the general manager of the club in an interview said that the club has set a new target which is to play in the playoff seeing that things are working out well as of now.
"We are performing more than we expected, the surprise element is there, and very many people underestimated us. Our target now is to make the play offs and then win the championship next year," Rugambwa ambitiously stated. He notes that they've been making strategic recruitment of players who fit in the club's way of playing and this has helped the club since 2011.
"When we got promoted, we sat down and looked at the players we needed to improve as a team, these players recruited have helped us," he added.
