Victory for USIU in regional games

27 August 2014, 15:16

Nairobi - Kenya's United States International University (USIU) secured an empathic 45-36 victory over the UCU from Uganda in their Fiba Africa Zone Five Clubs Basketball Championship Pool B match at KPA Makande Gymnasium in Mombasa Tuesday.

USIU enjoyed an early 18-14 lead and extended that lead to 25-14 before the break.

They managed to maintain that same intensity during the second half to bank a well deserved win on the night.

USIU's top scorer was Lol Chan with 17 points, while Cynthia Irankunda and Georgia Otieno managed 14 and five points respectively.

For the Ugandan side Peace Nakirijja starred with nine points while Purity Odhiambo and Vilma Owino scored eight and six points respectively.

In another match played on Tuesday Mombasa basketball fans cheered wildly as their home team Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) utilised the advantage to beat Etho Water Sport from Ethiopia 86-43 in a Pool A match.

The game started at a fast pace. It was KPA, however, who managed to win the first quarter 14-12 but had an easy second quarter where they registered 29-9 victory to lead 43-21. KPA had another tough time to win the third quarter (20-14) before winning the last quarter with 23-8.

In a antoher women's Pool B clash, Tanzania’s Don Bosco made a poor start when they bowed down 64-35 to Berco Stars of Burundi.
