*Ndejje University Vs Betway Power – 8:30PM

Our Saviour Basketball Club will be targeting maximum points when they face Sharing Youth in the Tusker Lite Sponsored National Basketball league at YMCA court in Wandegeya.

The Kikoni based side are still winless since the 2019 season began. They have lost all their 17 games so far and are the best favourites for relegation.

The club is indirectly paying for not making adequate replacements after letting three stars leave before the season started. They lost Joseph Wacha (JKL), Brian Ssentongo (KIU Titans) and Daniel ‘Dudus’ Monoja (JKL).

Our Saviour lost 48-100 to UCU Canons in their last engagement on August 3rd but will fancy their chances against Sharing Youth who have lost 11 games (won 6).

Sharing Youth have also lost two games in a row and will on the other hand go all out to return to winning ways.

Our Saviour will have to depend on Davis Assimwe, Elton Donald Bakara, Stephen Wokorach and Wilberforce Pirwoth among others for their maiden win.

Against UCU, Our Savour shot an ugly 17 of 61 from the field and will now aim for much more better of they are to stun Raymond Muhumuza’s Sharing Youth.

The reverse fixture ended 56-68 in Sharing Youth’s favour in the first round. Sharing Youth also won both games last season.
