Before Ivan Enabu joined Kyambogo Warriors, from UCU Canons, everything at Warriors hinged on Ronnie Kasewu. He (Kasewu) dished out the assists as well as making those clutch shots that kept Warriors going. Each time he was kept out of the mix, Warriors were almost done and it was evident in last season’s playoff finals when Power high pressed Warriors suffocating their point guard to overcome Warriors who had pulled back from 3-0 down to level the series 3-3 before they finally succumbed in the final game.
However, since Enabu joined Warriors, the Kyambogo University side has taken on a totally different look all through the season and you need to keep out a series of players, Enabu inclusive to stop the title hopefuls which is almost practically impossible. Ivan Enabu’s precision, timing and an uncanny knack for hitting clutch shots as well as getting teammates in the game has made him the best player in the league at the moment. His consistence through the season and the impact he has made at Warriors makes him the best player in the league and ultimately Most Valuable Player.
Sudi Ulanga and Isaac Afidra have almost been equally good for their respective teams through the season and would in my opinion make the other contenders for MVP. Since the exit of the Enabu brothers from UCU, the Christian University side has simply not looked good enough but Ulanga has lifted the Canons with extra-ordinary performances and kept their playoff hopes alive as they have been regular at playoffs since they got into division one of the league. Isaac Afidra has also been an all important player for Power but has shared responsibility of lifting the team with Isaac Lugude and Emmanuel Enabu who have shown up on different occasions and lifted Power to victories. It’s difficult to stand out among the stars but Afidra’s performance can’t be overlooked as he has presented a series of super shows for power this season.
