Kampala International University Titans were in good form on Sunday night as they beat City Oilers 48-47 in a tough Airtel National Basketball League contest.

Coach Nimrod Kaboha’s side dominated all the four quarters as new comers City Oilers tried to find their form, but failed to match the university students.

Man of the match Francis Kasekende of KIU Titans scored the highest game score with 22 at the YMCA Court in Wandegeya. Julius Lutwama picked 8 points for the students’ side, while Jimmy Enabu and Kami Kabange were the only City Oilers’ players with double figures.

After the game, City Oilers coach Mande Juruni told Uganda Radio Network that KIU took advantage after his own charges failed to take their chances. The big spenders City Oilers have now lost two games, while former champions DMark Power and UCU Canons are yet to suffer defeat.

In the other men’s game played on Sunday, UCU Canons beat Nkumba Marines 67-35, while Makerere Sparks walked over Nabisunsa Girls and Magic Stormers humbled KIU Rangers 62-41 in the women’s category.
