Today at Lugogo
Menâ€™s div 1 play-off semis:
Canons v Warriors (series tied at 1-1)
KCC v A1 (series tied at 1-1)
THE Kyambogo Warriors are still on course to defend their FUBA championship, heading into todayâ€™s Game 3 of their best-of-five playoff semi-finals against the UCU Canons which is tied 1-1.
However, it is by no means a smooth ride for Gad Etauâ€™s team, who have been limping rather than cruising towards the big prize.
The Warriorsâ€™ boss concedes his team lacks the fluidity which was a key component of their maiden title-conquest last season. And that is not all.
He doesnâ€™t expect the swagger to return any time soon. From now on, all that matters for Eteu and his men is winning, style or no style.
â€œIt is true that we are not playing well but if you look at our team compared to other teams we have many new players,â€ said Eteu. â€œOther teams have been intact for some time but we havenâ€™t. It takes a while for new players gelâ€.
On the other hand, UCU have an abundance of quick ball-handlers, led by the magical Ivan Enabu and have been able to hurt the Warriors when they find their rhythm.
Meanwhile, the womenâ€™s semi-finals fixture is real battle of wills with A1 Challenge and the KCC Leopards going toe-to-toe all the way. In this series, the team that has come with more passion has carried the day. In Game 1 it was KCC, Game 2 it was A1. Who will it be today?
