It is the battle of 2015 champions as NBL defending champions City Oil take on the Division 1 Champions UPDF Tomahawks in one of the second week’s FUBA league games on Sunday at the YMCA.

Another newly promoted side, Destiny Phenoms is also in action against the Charging Rhinos as both sides dare dream staying in the NBL.

The Oilers who completed a treble over the KIU Titans with a 76-59 win last week, in the opening game of the season, are looking to maintain their perfect start as they gun for their fourth title in four years.

The UPDF Tomahawks who beat the Destiny Phenoms 99-70 in the finals of the Division 1 league last December as both sides gunned for qualification to the National Basketball League, on the hand, will also be aiming for a decent debut to guarantee league survival by end of the season.

Kami Kabange, Landry Ndikumana and Jimmy Enabu are expected to once again lead the way for their team mates and especially new signings Jonah Otim and Brian Ssentongo with Geoffrey Omondi and Daniel Jjuuko supplementing their efforts.

UPDF’S Dudus Monajja, Wilberforce Pirworth and Moses Muhumuza will lead the army side in the 2.00pm clash.

In the other games of the day depleted Magic Stormers will look to Aisha Kabange, Sylivia Alanda and Jacky Natocho for inspiration against the women defending champions’ Martha Soigi and Maureen Amoding’s led KCCA Leopards.
