Sunday, May 16
*Angels 44-41 Nkumba Lady Marines
*JKL Dolphins 70-74 Ndejje Angels
*Nabisunsa 27-98 KIU Rangers
*KIU Titans 85-62 UPDF Tomahawks


Samuel Ajak posted 17 points, five rebounds and three assists as Ndejje University Angles shocked JKL Dolphins on Sunday at Kansanga.

JKL had a poor start when they trailed 23-10 after the first quarter but staged a comeback and almost won it down the stretch.

Lumanyika laid up to hand JKL a four point lead with 4:12 on the clock but 14, Godwin Muhamiriro’s two, Samuel Ajack’s one made freethrow and Haron Arinaitwe’s three point jumper turned tables to put Ndejje in a two-point lead.

Joseph Wacha tied the game with about two minutes to play but JKL later gave away fouls to let Ndejje finish the job from the freethrow line.

Livingston Kimambo and Cikom Munbai had 15 and 13 respectively as Ndejje shot 26-of-46 from the field to cross the line.

Brian Namake scored a game high 19 points, Wacha and Ivan Lumanyika bagged 13 and 12 in that order in a losing effort.

This is the second loss for JKL Dolphins who also lost to UPDF Tomahawks in the opener. They had beaten Power, KCCA and KIU Titans previously.

Ndejje who also beat Betway Power, have won two and lost three from five games.

Elsewhere, Faisal Aden 15, and 14 each from Denis Balungu and Collins Kasujja ensured that KIU Titans survive UPDF scare.

Ines Kanyanunyu scored 21 as KIU Rangers shot down Nabisunsa Girls while Catherine Amusungut had 17 to steer Angels past Nkumba Lady Marines.
