No Claire Lamunu, no problem as KCCA Leopards managed to overcome Nkumba Lady Marines in an early kickoff of the NBL at UCU court in Mukono.

Lamunu is serving a two-game ban after she was fielded by her club without a letter of clearance in their opener with JKL Lady Dolphins in a game they won 58-55.

Consequently, KCCA Leopards had that win against JKL overturned for violation of article 101 of FUBA rules and regulations on player eligibility.

The Leopards got off the blocks to lead 14-9 in the first quarter and the side never looked back.

Stylish point guard Cynthia Irakunda led the way with 15 points, four rebounds and six assists. Alicia Wasagali contributed 10 points while Leanne Nalunkuma added nine.

Catherine Haruri and Fina Busingye scored 11 and 9 points respectively in a losing cause for the University team that shot 17-of-59 from the field and managed just 1-11 from the three-point range.

This is the second loss for Nkumba from as many games after they fell 50-69 to KIU Rangers on April 17.

Lamunu will miss KCCA game on Sunday against Nabisunsa as she will be completing a two-game ban but will be back in action when KCCA face on May 9.
