In Summary

  • It will be no walk in the park though for the military side as there is uncertainty on the availability of their three key players who are nursing injuries.
  • The trio are captain William Ochieng , Triberius Menya, and Erick Mutoro, who are being monitored by the team’s medical team.

Ulinzi Warriors will be aiming to bounce back to winning ways when they take to the court in their weekend matches.

The William Balozi coached side have two tough fixtures against Umoja on Saturday and another tricky fixture against Thunder on Sunday and will be aiming for wins after losing to Equity and defending champions Kenya Ports Authority at the weekend – their first defeats of the campaign.

Balozi is however optimistic that his charges will rectify the mistakes that saw them lose vital points when they face Umoja and Thunder at the USIU ground.

Last weekend, the warriors fell 53-38 to KPA before succumbing to the bankers.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Balozi said: “We have worked keenly on our weak areas; correcting our mistakes and we hope to do our best.”

It will be no walk in the park though for the military side as there is uncertainty on the availability of their three key players who are nursing injuries.

The trio are captain William Ochieng , Triberius Menya, and Erick Mutoro, who are being monitored by the team’s medical team.

Despite the uncertainly of his availability, skipper Ochieng is confident that his team-mates will rise to the occasion.

Meanwhile, KCA University men basketball side head coach Victor Okello is focused as they face World Hope. The students won last weekend, beating Lakeside 57-46 in Kisumu.

“We want to keep on building on the winning momentum so as to end up on a high note as we come to an end of the first leg,”Okello said.
