Airtel National Basketball League
Power v Falcons
KIU v Stormers
Ask a regular basketball enthusiast in Uganda what he thinks of Emmanuel Awel Enabu and an unambiguous response will be; a delight to watch.
The 23 year-old will miss Dmark Power’s Airtel National Basketball League remaining games of the season including Friday’s crunch date with foes and last year’s finalist Falcons at YMCA Wandegeya after he traveled to Canada on Thursday for further studies.
He landed safely in North America on Thursday night.
Enabu a talented point guard has been influential in Power’s ascension to the top of Ugandan basketball in recent seasons with his trademark inside out dribbles and intensity on court.
“Power as family and team will definitely miss Enabu,” senior player Isaac Afidra told us.
“But we have to focus on our league campaign and find a solution to Enabu’s exit with another player who can handle the ball,” captain Isaac Ikong added.
But Falcons, record league winners – currently seventh – have only beaten one side in the top six. Power beat them 87-78 in the first round despite Stephen Omony’s 28 points for Falcons
And Uganda’s most successful club are said to be bound to miss the services of senior players Phillip Ameny, Serge Kabangu and Geoff Omondi due to internal deviations.
