City Oilers v UPDF
KIU Titans v Our Savior
KAMPALA – The National Basketball League has over the years, seen a number of surprises and this season’s surprise lies in the hands of Our Savior.
Currently sitting in second place two points behind leaders Betway Power, the Christian side will take on the KIU Titans on Saturday at the MTN Arena and a win will see them pushing for their first ever league title.
Despite their current rich vein of form that saw them defeating Pemba Warriors 51-36 in their most recent game, coach, David Burkowski believes it is still early to conclude their fate as possible champions.
“We are still trying to find our rhythm this season and we have strong successive fixtures against KIU and City Oilers so we can’t talk about the championship just yet,” he said.
Meanwhile, defending chamions, City Oilers will look forward to puting more pressure on the UPDF side looking for only their second win of the season when the two sides meet in an earlier fixture.
The Army boys pulled off a convincing display against Betway Power in their 79-84 defeat, a display of confidence they can exhibit again today against the less ruthless Oilers.
The first game of the day will see the Charging Rhinos take on Sharing Youth.
