KIU Main Campus - KIU Titans started their pre-season preparations with a win over new comers, Namuwongo Blazers, on 2nd Friday April, 2021 ahead of the Uganda Basketball League that is expected to start on 17th April, 2021.
A tight match played at the KIU Basketball Court in Kansanga saw the hosts score 64 baskets while Namuwongo Blazers had only 55. KIU Titans' Brian Wathum commended his boys for putting up a promising performance and sticking to the game plan.
‘’It’s a good win for the lads, especially a young team playing against such a strong team. I am happy for them to have stuck to the game plan especially our defense,’’ he said.
Brian, who is now concentrating on giving new players a run in a competitive setting this Easter holiday, is confident enough that his team will put up a rare performance in the forth coming National League season.
The Titans played JKL Dolphins on Saturday 3rd April 2021 before taking on City Oilers on Easter Monday to complete a series of their line-up series of Easter Holiday pre-season friendlies.
