REIGNING basketball league champions, Kyambogo Warriors underlined their dominance as they won two of their preliminary games during the FUBA Sprite Super Challenge, an event for the top four teams from all the four FUBA divisions.

New signings Eric Malinga and Pascal Alule proved their worth when they netted 32 and 12 points respectively as the Warriors thrashed Berkley to welcome them to top flight action at the YMCA, Wandegeya.

D’Mark Power walloped second division tier, TLC with Norman Blick dropping a game high 47 points while Joseph Ikong scored 27 as Carol Bisereko contributed 17 points to see off TLC.

In the ladies encounter, A-1 Challenge surprised Makerere Sparks as they beat them in game one of the best-of-three preliminary games with Vicky Nassolo and Ali Mavita scoring 22 and 17 apiece to drive their team to victory. Florence Nakazibwe and Jalia Nassali made 13 and 10 respectively for Sparks.

Meanwhile, UCU beat KIU Rangers in a thrilling encounter that saw the university teams struggling for a win on day one. Frances Nabuloobi returned from a six months long ankle injury with a bang as she inspired the Lady Canons by dropping 10 points. Her teammates Loraine Akinyi and Brenda Mbone were in double figures too with 23 and 10 points respectively.
