ANOTHER season, another battle to survive. That is the plight of the KCC Lions, who open their MTN-FUBA men’s top-flight campaign against KIU Titans at Wandegeya today.

The Titans are one of the strong teams in the league and are sure to give KCC an ominous signal of what lies ahead.

The Lions survived relegation in the last two seasons but not without help of off-the-court technicalities that bailed them out when they had already resigned to the drop.

It is unlikely the Lions can be as fortunate this season.

All the work will have to be done on court, starting with the Nimrod Kaboha’s Titans who were impressive in the pre-season programme.
