By Douglas Mazune Jammers 69 Power 62 A-1 62 Lady Bucks 61 GODWIN Khisa hit a game high 21 points as Sky Jammers rallied from 14 points behind in the third quarter to win the 2001 basketball championship. Jinja-based Jammers became the first team from outside Kampala to win the FUBA league title on Sunday. A tightly marked Norman ‘Magic’ Blick, set up teammates and managed 10 points himself while Iga Hakim added 12 points for the Jammers who won the best-of-five-series 3-1. Power’s Julius Wapera and Wilbrod Oketcho, who was a candidate for the MVP status, could manage only 15 points each under the Lugogo stadium floodlights. Power led the opening quarter 16-5 points and went further ahead 38-26 in the second. But all that changed in the third quarter. Norman showed his class, dribbling into Power’s area as Jammers closed in 45-46 at eight minutes of the third quarter. Norman later followed it all up with a 3-pointer for a 48-46 lead. It was downhill for Jammers after that. In the women’s event, A-1 beat defending champions Lady Bucks to even the series 2-2 to set up a decider on Friday. ends
