Sudi Ulanga: Shooting Guard Pondering His Next Move

Sudi Ulanga says that he is not going to retire now and the guard is thinking about his next move ahead of the 2020 National Basketball League.

Sudi, regarded by many as the best shooter to have graced the NBL, was released by KIU Titans last season.

He helped the Titans to 2017 NBL finals where they lost to City Oilers but the subsequent seasons have seen him look like he has ran out of steam.

Last season, he started 16 of 21 games he played for KIU where he averaged nine points, four rebounds and two assists. The Titans finished sixth (13-9) in the regular season before being eliminated by Warriors at the quarters.

“I thought about retirement last season especially after having what I could call my worst season,” Sudi told the-SportsNation.

“I still have alot of time left to play, no need of talking about it now,” Sudi responded when asked about retirement. “My focus right now is to prepare for the coming season and finalize my next move.”

He refused to disclose his next move.

Sudi says that his plan is to play in this forthcoming season though he hasn’t finalised negotiations with his new club.

He was among the many players, including Denis Balungu, who were offloaded by the Kansanga side who are ‘focussing on rebuilding.’

“I had a great time there but of course with a couple of challenges as well. And it was inevitable for me to move on because at this point in my career I can’t be part of a team that is building up,” Sudi reflected on his time at KIU.

“During my tenure at KIU, I played with so many great players and the relationship I had with Mr President (Nasser Sserunjogi) was great.”

On many occasions last season, Sudi was the coach of KIU Rangers, a sister team to the Titans.

Sudi, born to Abdulrazak Ulanga and Salma Sudi Amir in Dar Es Salam, Tanzania, has played for UCU and Falcons.
