*KIU Rangers Vs JKL Lady Dolphins – 6:30PM
*UCU Canons Vs KIU Titans – 8:30 PM
The National Basketball League returns this Friday with two games at the Indoor Arena in Lugogo.
The league had taken a break due to the FIBA Zone Five Basketball championship before the break was extended due to the FIBA 369 program.
KIU Rangers and JKL Lady Dolphins go head to head in the Women category before UCU Canons take on Brian Wathum’s KIU Titans.
JKL are yet to lose a game and will seek to keep their unbeaten record intact. However, KIU will go all out to cause an upset.
“We are ready for anything,” Rangers captain Ninette Uwineza told this website on Thursday. “They might be leaders yes but we are not scared of anyone, we hope for the best.”
“We want to play as a team, playing very good defense can help us stop JKL.”
KIU have only won once in their last six games. They have won five and lost six games this season so far.
The side will hope for the best from their star players like Brenda Aujat, Ines Kanyamunza, Moureen Nankumbi, Racheal Akinyi among others.
The Lady Dolphins on the hand, have won all their 12 games at this stage and will as expected rely on Gazelles quartet of Jamila ‘Zama’ Nansikombi, Flavia Oketcho, Rita Imanishimwe and Hope Akello for a positive result.
JKL beat KIU 76-54 in the first round on May 1, 2019 at YMCA court in Wandegeya, Kampala.
