KCCA Leopards have had a scintillating run since the start of the second round registering five wins in as many games.

The four-time league winners continued with their brilliant performance on Sunday defeating Nkumba Lady Marines at the YMCA outdoor court.

Despite trailing at the break, KCCA returned stronger in the final two quarters to stage a comeback and win the game 74-66.

Ekone eventually ended with a game-high of 25 points but in a losing effort.

KCCA Leopards turned on the heat in the third quarter with a 26-18 score to lead 54-53 heading into the fourth and final quarter.

In the final quarter, KCCA scored 20 limiting Nkumba Lady Marines to 13 and eventually claim victory.
