Warriors, JKL Lady Dolphins and UCU Canons earned comfortable wins on Saturday as action in the National Basketball League continued.

In the games played at YMCA, Warriors broke no sweat to dispatch newcomers Kampala University Eagles, JKL Dolphins overcame a lacklustre KCCA while UCU Canons defeated Our Saviour.

Warriors comfortably took care of Kampala University winning all the four quarters in what seemed like a one-sided affair.

They registered scores of 20-12, 25-9, 16-15 and 24-9 to win the game 85-45.

Congolese import Michael Buzangu scored a game-high 22 points for Ronnie Mutebi’s charges. He shot 7-13 on the field, picked six rebounds and added three assists on the day.

Patrick Seduge and Ahmed Kassa combined for 20 points but for the Eagles in a losing effort who were losing their second game in as many attempts.

They return to court on Sunday against JKL Dolphins who defeated KCCA 77-56 led by Brian Namake who had 21 points and was named player of the game.

Despite arriving late, UCU Canons did not find trouble in dispatching Our Saviour in a game that had many stops due to rain.

However, the game eventually ended with the University side winning 79-51.

UCU’s David Deng Kongor had a game high 36 points.

In the ladies category, Nkumba Lady Marines sailed past Uganda Martyrs University Ravens led by influential Brenda Ekon who scored a game-high 24.

In the other game KIU Rangers got a 46-44 victory over Angels.

Action resumes on Easter Sunday with four games on the card at YMCA Outdoor court in Wandegeya.

There will be a battle of wounded teams as MUK Sparks and Angels face off. Newcomers YMCA hamsters take on Nkumba Lady Marines in the other women’s game.

JKL Dolphins will return to action against Kampala University seeking to make it three wins in three games while Sharing Youth take on Ndejje University.
