Lions vs Ulinzi at Kasarani

The Lions basketball team on Sunday produced a remarkable 3rd and 4th quarter  performance to edge former champions Ulinzi 72-52  at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani  during match 3 of the Kenya Basketball Federation men premier league quarter final play offs.

With a close range of 27-26   by halftime, it looked like  the match would go down to the final  seconds just like the previous two opening matches, but the Lions  were totally bullish in the final two quarters even without their key man Ancet Wafula who was away.

Wafula had secured 33 individual points during match day two that was won by Lions against his former team Ulinzi.

On day one at Kasarani ,1st November, Lions lost closely courtesy of a last minute three pointer by Bernard Mufutu as Ulinzi ran away with a slim   67-65 win.

On Saturday, Ancet Wafula was on fire for the Lions guiding his team with 33 points as they recovered to win game two and push the quarters to game three on Sunday. During this match, Lions won 96-77.

Lions will next play KPA on Wednesday in the semi finals to be staged at Kasarani starting 8:00PM.
