Falcons fall from grace to grass is well documented. Their demotion from the National Basketball League to Division One in 2017 was the rock bottom.

They, however, fought their way back to the country’s premier basketball division but if the first two games on their return are anything to go by, the six-time National Basketball League champions will return to Division One at the end of the season.

On Wednesday night, Falcons played their second of the season and defending champions City Oilers left them for dead at YMCA.

Francis Karoro pulled up for a three and Henry Mbaziira sunk a mid-range jumper and that was all from Falcons in the first quarter as Oilers completed the period with a 21-5 lead.

The 11-point second quarter for City Oilers was their own making as they regrouped in the second half to blow out Falcons.

Player of the game Tony Drileba scored an efficient 21 points to pace the Oilers. Landry Ndikumana (14 points and 14 rebounds) and Ivan Muhwezi (13 points) came in handy.

Mbaziira scored team high 13 points and Asiku had 11.

Next Games
