By Douglas Mazune DEFENDING champions Falcons have promised to shock their challengers in the prestigious Abe Linc VIII international basketball tournament that tips off tonight at YMCA Wandegeya. Falcons coach Ronnie Kaboha admitted that the beaten league finalists would face a severe test over the next three days but was optimistic they would come out it smiling. "We intend to retain the title and I strongly believe we can," Kaboha said yesterday. "People should not underrate us because we lost the league title. Don't forget that we have won four cups this year and we know why we lost the championship." Falcons face a big challenge from Kenya army side Ulinzi, Runda (comprised of veteran Kenyan players), Mombasa Coast and Rwanda's APR and Espoir. Uganda's new league champions Sadolin Power and Charging Rhino are serious contenders too. Kaboha said he would add a few surprises on his star studded team led by two-time MVP Steven Omwony. But Power, who beat Falcons 3-0 in a one-sided local league final playoff, are equally eager to extend the frontiers of their dominations into the region. It also promises to be a heated personal contest between new MVP Wilbrod Oketcho of Sadolin Power and his immediate predecessor Stephen Omwony, the Falcons star who is still considered to be the best player in the country. As defending champs, Falcons are sure to take to the court tonight. Ends
