Women: Amazon 26-50 UCU
Cubs 21-58 Bucks
Having done all the hard work to get into the play-offs as the top seed in the MTN-Fuba League women’s division, UCU Lady Canons took their foot off the gas.
Nonetheless, they were still good enough to defeat Amazon Rhino 50-26 on Saturday night at YMCA court, Wandegeya.
UCU took the first quarter 19-0 before coach Made Juruni limited his star players to minimal time on the floor.
Perhaps, he wanted to keep them fresh for the start of the play-offs this Friday.
In doing so, the 2008 champions’ margin came down to 6-13, 16-4 and 9-9 in the subsequent periods.
Celia Asila stood out with 12 points and three rebounds which can be minute contribution on any other day. Lorraine Akinyi added eight points on one of her quieter nights.
Elsewhere, Lady Bucks comfortably beat Makerere Cubs 58-21.
