Ivan Enabu scored 9 fourth quarter points to lead Warriors to a third successive playoff finals appearance. The point guard who has been quiet in the series scored post season high 19 points to pace Warriors to a 73-63 win over UCU Canons Friday night in game 5. Center, Micheal Kariuki added 15 points 9 coming in the first quarter to jump start the victory that set up a Warriors-Falcons finals.

UCU trailed for the first two quarters and took the lead for the first time in the game off Martin Okwako’s mid range jumper with 2:55 in the third period. However the lead did not last for long as back-to-back 3-pointers from Ronnie Kasewu (10 points) took Warriors back up 49-47 with 57 seconds to end the third quarter and the back-to-back losing finalists did not trail again.

UCU’s center, Desmond Owili nailed game high 29 points and picked 17 rebounds in a losing effort. Suudi Ulanga had a tough night scoring just 11 points as Warriors’ #2 Sirus Kiviri was all over him through out the game. Warriors will face Falcons who beat KIU TItans 72-57 earlier. Big man, Philip Ameny powered Falcons to the playoff finals with team and high 21points.
