UCU Lady Canons Vs KCCA Leopards 5:30pm
Warriors Vs Falcons 7:30pm

The ANBL playoff finals return to YMCA as Falcons and Warriors face off in game 3. With series tied 1-1, whoever both sides take game three has the advantage.

Warriors eschewed their slow transition offense and put some speed to it to overcome Falcons. “We had to throw on guys who are fast to create some match-up problems for them (Falcons)” Mandy Juruni said after the game 2 win. Ivan Enabu led the relatively quick warriors that had Sirus Kiviri, Norman Blick, Ronnie Kasewu and Henry Malinga for most of the second half when warriors ran away. Enabu had a big game since the game 5 against UCU Canons. “He (Enabu) is my number one point guard and when he is playing well he gets the minutes” Juruni added.

Falcons lost the game on the defensive end as they couldn’t stop anything Warriors did in the third quarter and coach, Gad Eteu is well aware and knows his team has to defend better. “You have to defend to win games” he said. Philip Ameny notched his first double-double of the finals in a losing effort. Falcons’ glass cleaner netted game high 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and will lead the team in game 3. Falcons star player Steven Omony had 12 points in the first half of game 2 but dug his team in a major offensive hole in the second half hitting just a single rain maker after the intermission.

KCCA Leopards play UCU Lady Canons in game 3 of the women’s finals. Leopards have come close in the opening two games but have fallen short in the waning minutes with game 2 going to the wire. KCCA have to win four of the remaining five and UCU need just two of those, which is likely.
