*Miracle Eaglets Vs KIU Rangers (0-1)
*Ndejje Angels Vs Our Saviour (0-1)
Ndejje University Angels coach John Omondi says he has a better plan for their Game Two encounter against Our Saviour on Wednesday.
Ndejje lost game one 60-84 on Saturday and must win on Wednesday else they face elimination in these best of three quarterfinals.
But as it was in Game one, the University side sill be without the duo Gatwang Thuok and Samuel!
The duo joined Ndejje at the latter stages of the second round: Gatwang and Ajak played five and four games and averaged 22 and 21 points in that order.
Omondi has confirmed to The-SportsNation that Gatwang is working on “some family matters” while Ajak is “fully engaged” and won’t feature either.
But he said that they might have them back for the semifinals in case they progress.
“We played regular season without Ajak and Getwang, their presence in second round was a big boost. We knew they wouldn’t be around all through but then they had engagements that couldn’t wait. They have created a void but the team is still solid enough to win.”
Reflecting on Saturday’s game one loss, Omondi said: “We prepared for that game but it did not go our way, their style of play broke our defensive set ups but will turn it around come next game.”
“We have a better plan given that the fast one failed. As a team we have a lot of counter measures that I don’t think this team will override easily.”
Joseph Kumbai and Aaron Alinaitwe among other starters should step up else Ndejje will be sent packing.
