UCU Canons dispatched Ndejje University Angels to record a 64-57 victory in a National Basketball League game played at YMCA court in Wandegeya, Kampala.
Ndejje dominated proceedings to lead 29-25 at halftime but a few turnovers and failure to execute inside the paint saw the lead pass through their hands.
The Mukono based side won the third quarter 21-9 and held on to win the close affair.
Titus Lual scored a game high 17 points and added as many rebounds for his double double. Peter Sifuma also weighed with 10 points while David Dikong Deng had 12 rebounds for UCU.
Innocent Ochera had 16 points, Gauthier Badhera had 13 points while Derrick Katumba contributed 7 points and 12 rebounds in a losing effort.
The Canons complete a double over Walker Obedi’s Ndejje as they had won the first round tie 70-65 on April 14 at the Indoor Arena.
This was Ndejje’s eighth loss of the season. They have won seven games. UCU on the other hand extend their lead at the summit with 14 wins and two losses.
The game between Oilers and JKL Dolphins was halted inside the second quarter following damage of the hoop after James Okello’s dunk. The game will be rescheduled at a latter date.
By rules, it will be started afresh if the rescheduled fixture is set 24 hours after the earlier game.
