The basketball season curtain-raising tournament, UCU Open, will be on this weekend in Mukono.

All the top sides in the National Basketball League across both divisions, save for KCCA Leopards, have confirmed participation.

Namuwongo Blazers who have made major changes to their team are expected to show a glimpse of what their season could be like.

UCU Canons have always been competitive regardless of the player turnover and like Blazers, they will use the tournament as a precursor for the season.

City Oilers who have been the team to beat over the past eight seasons will be part of the tournament they won in 2013 when they had just arrived in the top-flight.
