UCU Canons, Blazers Set For ‘The Invite’ Final

The UCU Canons and the Namuwongo Blazers are the two teams that will face off for the title in ‘’The Invite’’ final this Saturday.

Last Saturday, both sides progressed through one-sided semifinal clashes with the Canons easily sliding past the Falcons. On the other hand, the Blazers beat the UPDF Tomahawks to progress to the finals.

The Canons started their semifinal on the front foot with Jerry Kayanga and Peter Sifuma finding their rhythm early.

In the first quarter, they limited the Falcons to just eight points while they led them by nine (17-8). By halftime, the lead had grown to 15 while the Falcons struggled with offense.

After scoring 19 points, the third quarter became the Falcons’ best quarter but that couldn’t save them as they trailed by 14 points going into the last 10 minutes.

The UCU Canons dominated over the Falcons, 75-53 advancing to the finals, and are now to face the Blazers.

David Okello registered a game-high of 17 points to lead the Canons in scoring and he added eight rebounds to that. Sifuma topped on that with his own 15 points and five rebounds.

Gerald Ayiku is the only Falcons player who registered double figures after he scored 10 points to lead his team in scoring.

This tournament started this year to remember the contributions made by fallen basketball stakeholders.

It is sponsored by Club beer, Betway Uganda, and Rwenzori. The winner will walk away with a trophy and shs 2m from Club beer.
