With Geoffrey Soro back to full fitness, the KIU Titans are tapping into another dimension of their deeply loaded squad.

Soro's crackling intensity and uplifting persona has given the hottest team in the National Basketball League (NBL) an extra edge as their onslaught towards the title etches closer to the postseason.

On Thursday at the YMCA, Geoffrey Soro snatched a game-high 16 points and provided the spark that turned a tight contest against the UCU Canons into a comfortable 62-52 victory.

Just like he did on Sunday when KIU rallied from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter against Our Saviour, Soro rose above stiffness of battle with a combination of force and purposefulness that few other players in the NBL are capable of.

Soro punished double and triple teams with the extra pass, he earned an extra possession by crashing the boards and run the floor for the fast break, all done with the sort of energy the Canons couldn't contain.

The Titans have now won a season-high 16 games and the emergence of Soro, who was hampered with knee trouble in the first round makes them much harder to stop as they prepare for what looks like their best ever shot at the title.

Sudi Ulanga and Samuel Agutu nailed 13 and 12 points respectively for the Titans, who led 25-22 at halftime but were up 42-34.  

Jonathan Egau and Fadhili Chuma gunned 11 and 10 points respectively for the Canons, who have lost two in a row and are looking shaky at the worst possible time.
