City Oilers emerged champions in their debut league year after seeing out experienced Falcons 4-3 in the seven game spread playoffs finals but UCU Canons are not bother considering that they have won four straight games against Mandy Juruni’s galacticos heading into the first game of the best of five semifinal series.
Sudi Ulanga and Sunday Okot were unfazed by Falcons’ defense and center Ivan Lumanyika helped Canons control the paint. Now, the Canons will have to get past the toughest and physical brand of perimeter defense to get everything they want at the rim.
UCU’s under the hoop players, Ivan Lumanyika and Desmond Owili (who mostly might be at 4) will find it tough to get close looks against Kami Kabange, Arou Ramadhan and Samuel Kalwanyi. Ulanga will have to make some tough shots in the face of Jeff Omondi and Jimmy Enabu as he will without doubt be the center of attention on City Oilers’ defensive end. It (defense) is something the City Oilers are not shying away from. Jimmy Enabu says:
In the quarterfinals, City Oilers dismantled Sharing while UCU also saw off Falcons.
Defending champions KCCA Leopards who are on a roll take on A-1 Challenge in Game One of the series of the women’s category in the early kickoff at 6pm.
