Leaders JKL Lady Dolphins extended their unbeaten run in the league on Saturday with a 107-26 blowout in a one sided affair at the Indoor Arena in Lugogo.

The Lady Dolphins led 55-18 at halftime before limiting UMU to just two points in the third quarter on their way to registering their 12th win of the season.

Jamila ‘Zama’ Nansikombi led with game high 22 points for the defending champions. Stella Oyella had 14 points while Evelyn Nakiyingi and Hope Gimono had 13 and 12 points respectively.

Only Vicky Akello (10 points) scored in double figures for UMU ravens who suffered their eighth loss of the campaign.

UMU Ravens came into the game on the back of a 82-55 win against YMCA, but couldn’t give JKL a big run for their money at Lugogo.

JKL shot 43 of 92 from the field including nine made threes, as they capitalised on UMU’s poor show that saw the University team turnover the ball 30 times and five bench points against JKL’s 57 bench points.


Elsewhere, Syrus Kiviiri scored 36 points to add on Geoffrey Soro’s 21 as Power beat Kampala University 95-72.
