USIU bounce back with slim win over Equity Hawks

A single point denied Equity Hawks a possible 2-0 lead  against  defending champions USIU Flames during the second match of the Kenya Basketball Federation  second semi finals playoffs  at the Nyayo stadium on Sunday.

Having beaten  the same side in the opening match of the best of Five , Equity Hawks needed  two more straight wins to book a date for the finals against KPA. Equity had secured a 64-57 win on Saturday during game one  that saw them stage  a massive come back  as they were trailing  29-38 by halftime.

 Their  possible quick head start was cut off in the second match as  the students bounced back with a slim 46-45 win on Sunday.

On Sunday  Sarah Chan was the Star of the day for the Flames as she engineered her team's  recovery  with 14 points. Despite a very slow start in the opening quarter where they lost 20-09, USIU registered   09-15,08-15 and 08-07  points to sneak away with a slim win  as the two teams tied at 1-1 after the opening two matches of the best of five.

" It was a good match , unfortunately we let our lead sneak away but I am encouraged by my team's fighting spirit. We will come back for a better fight in the third match  and I am positive my team mates have the spirit to fight through to the finals." Said Samba Mjomba
