THE Ndejje Angels can learn one or two things about how to handle success from TigerHead Power. 

The two clubs meet in the National Basketball League (NBL) today at the YMCA as Ndejje aim to find a way out of their early season struggles. Walker Obedi’s side enjoyed their best ever campaign last season, underlined by a first ever win over Power. 

But thus far, Ndejje have struggled to replicate their best of last season – losing three of five (including their last two). Blame it on the injuries, lack of form and the demands of filling new pieces into the rotation but that is the reality of chasing success. 

A club simply has to strike a balance between ambition and misfortune. Power have done it overtime and have five-championships to boot. Once again, Bernes Ankunda’s side are among the leading contenders for this year’s title. Ndejje, well, they are simply trying to find their feet. 

 “The injuries are hurting us so much,” lamented Ndejje coach Walker Obedi.

“Our two best players (Geoffrey Soro and Brian Odour) have been affected by injuries so they have been in and out.  

“Power have all the good players you could want but when we play them it will be five against five. I expect us to have our best performance.” 

In the women’s NBL, the Makerere Sparks take on the KIU Rangers, which the day's first game.
