In Summary

UCU Canons ended the first round with an 8-3 record following a 69-60 win over Our Saviour.

KAMPALA. Betway Power coach Arnold Lando sought a reaction from his players after the 87-75 surprise loss to UPDF last weekend by warning there would be serious consequences would they put in more below-par performances.
This is after the result reawakened the theory that they are at their most vulnerable playing on a Sunday afternoon because of their off-court lifestyle.

They responded with the most emphatic performance of the weekend by blowing out Nkumba Marines 81-49 at Lugogo on Sunday afternoon. They made their intent clear by winning the opening 20-8 and unlike against UPDF the previous weekend, also finished strongly in the final period that they clinched 25-15 for their seventh victory in nine games.
Joseph Ikong led from the front for Power scoring seven points in the opening quarter to finish with a game-high 22 while Michael Makiadi added 10 and 12 rebounds and Nasser Guddi 11.
Nkumba Marines meanwhile slumped to 2-8 despite Malvin Ndaye’s 19 points.
