Miracle Eagles hardly broke any sweat in defeating Heaters 69-45 for their first MTN-Fuba League victory of the season. Coming off an opening day 96-91 loss to champions DMark Power, it’s the kind of game the play-off hopefuls needed to get the season rolling. And it came in the easiest fashion with Miracle not only scoring half of their points from the outside but also not letting any Heater breach the 10-point barrier.
Stephen Omony didn’t even have to strip whereas Norman Blick came on in the third quarter to sink 10 points including two three-pointers.
The former continued to handle the coaching duties in the absence of one. Guard Donald Bajunga stood out with a game-high 13 points.
Centre Brian Ssentogo briefly resuscitated the dour game with two monster dunks in his seven points.
In the end, there was common feeling that this could be a long season for Heaters if they don’t improve having lost two games already.
