Maggie Bagala scored a game high 28 points but her effort was not enough as Kampala University lost to JKL Lady Dolphins in Sunday’s first NBL game at Lugogo.

Bagala, who doubles as a Netball Centre for She Cranes and NIC, filled the stat-sheet with 10 rebounds, 5 assists and eight steals.

But she lacked enough support across the field as Kampala University lost their second game from as many.

Bagala, alongside Shakirah Nassaka and Harriet Amonding missed Saturday’s opener against UCU Lady Canons.

Lydia Anyanzwa and Amoding managed 8 and 6 points respectively for the Kampala University.

Superstar – Maggie Bagala in action

“It’s a lesson, along the way we are learning and we shall get better,” Kampala University coach Joe Mashereka said.

“It’s for starters pretty exciting to be in NBL and these Ladies worked so hard go get here, and this (loss) has showed us that we need to work a little bit more.

“We just need to improve wholesomely, the girls can play and we did not get here by mistake. We need to love the game more and start improve on all its facets.

“We are going back to watch the videos, correct the mistakes. I am happy that the Girls were not scared despite facing good teams, I thought they would be timid and I am super positive that they will improve.”

“Our target is to stay in the league, and one first win will give us the momentum from there on.”

JKL were the better side from the word go, and led 33-19 at half time before closing out their second win of the season from three games.

The Lady Dolphins who beat UCU in their opener, had lost to KCCA Leopards on Friday.
