•Nabisunsa Girls 53-55 A1 Challenge
A1 Challenge made a spirited comeback to win 55-53 against Nabisunsa Girls in the National Basketball League encounter at YMCA on Saturday.
A1 scored just one point in the second quarter to trail 26-13 at halftime and were 14 points down going into the last quarter.
But they outlasted Nabisunsa 30-14 in the fourth quarter to win a relegation thrilling affair.
Yaweh Precious (13) and Sandra Ayikoru (10) were the only A1 Challenge players to score in double digits while Kekimuli Cathy added 55 rebounds.
Patience Karungi led the way with 20 points and 16 rebounds for Nabisunsa who will feel hard done by the manner in which they threw away a commanding lead.
It’s revenge best served by A1 who lost 64-58 to Nabisunsa in their opening game of the season.
A1 Challenge who out rebounded Nabisunsa 70-51, have won three games this season – Both of their two previous wins came against another relegation candidate Nkumba Marines.
It’s the 10th loss for Nabisunsa Girls who have two wins – one against A1 and the other against Magic Stormers – and it can’t get any worse ahead of their next match against unbeaten JKL Lady Dolphins on June 26.
