Power aims to stay perfect in the National Basketball League

Power is unharmed after two National Basketball League regular season games. They beat the KIU Falcons and Titans for a 2-0 record and rank sixth on the 13-team log with four points.

In the mix
The five-time champions return to action tonight in a clash with the KCCA Panthers at the MTN Arena in Lugogo. While their 63-62 victory revealed weaknesses for Power to work on, the win over KIU highlighted more areas to address going forward. You don’t flip the ball 30 times and win a ball game often, but Power got away with it against the Titans on Friday.

They relied on Geoffrey Soro’s double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds for their second victory and are hoping for a similar performance from the center.

good all right
The Panthers, meanwhile, started their campaign with a win over newly promoted Victoria University Sharing but have since lost two straight for a 1-2 record.

Brian Wathum’s side have since lost 58-50 to Ndejje Angels and were beaten 80-46 by defending champions City Oilers over the weekend.

Having played one game more than their opponents, the Panthers are tied with Power on four points and sit fourth in the log.

Hungry Rangers
In the women’s category, KIU Rangers will look to maintain their strong start to the season against Nkumba Lady Marines.

Rangers opened the season with a 69-63 win over KCCA’s Leopards in what was the first upset of the season and beat A1 Challenge 61-55 over the weekend to remain third on the log with a 2-0 record and four points.
