Kampala International University’s Titans were in good form last evening as they beat defending champions DMark Power in one of the Airtel Basketball League games played at the YMCA Court, Wandegeya.

DMark Power who won bronze in the FIBA Africa Zone 5 Club Championships last month failed to find their winning formula losing 73-63 to the University side.

Troubled DMark Power point guard, Isaac Lugudde, who was early this week arrested in connection to robbery at a Forex Bureau in Kampala, managed a miserable 7 points, while Jospeh Ikong and Ben Komakech top scored with 12 points each. Kenyan import Richard Osano was top scorer for the Titans with 30 points, while Nelson Njau had 12.

Nimrod Kabona, the Titans coach said it was god his boys listened to instructions, adding that they are targeting the playoffs.

In the women’s game, last year’s runners-up KCCA Leopards humbled Makerere Sparks 59-17. Flavia Okecho picked 16 points for KCCA, while Joyce Zalwango and Sarah Nasuuna picked 11 and 10 respectively. Charline Karungi hit six for Sparks.
