In no way should one assume that the boys from the tally center squared off against the knights in the final showdown of the fundraiser.
(No way through!)
Rather, it was the very first game of the day, and it set the tone. From the LFTF conference, Tom Sabiiti’s boys opened the day with a bout against the defending Champs, Jacob Sewaali’s knights but things didn’t go according to plan. The former set the tone for the day with a resounding thumping of the defending champs having kept the knights, skippered by a one Malcolm, scoreless by half time.

With this show against the defending champs, it was no surprise to see the tally center contingent in the finale, but against an unfamiliar rival, in a Mwekuume partner, Rubaga. Elvis Lubega’s team was captained by a fierce lady in P.E and saw off challenges from clubs like Nateete, Nansana, Mulago nurses, Entebbe et al to make a date with Destadia.

The finale was not short of awe with both sides vying ruthlessly for the ultimate prize but Destadia proved a hard nut to crack and outwitted Rubaga to claim the second edition of the Amateur Basketball Challenge, and dethrone the Rotaract Club Of Kampala South to become the new & reigning champions.
Aside from that, we had at least 10 All Star Presidents , inclusive of the ASP of the interact club of Horizon – St Lawrence, take part in a “Best-Of-5” Free Throw challenge which looked to be in the interactor’s control til ASP Baguma Solomon from Bukoto took to the line, to score three consecutive FTs and claim the ASP Challenge.

We would like to thank all the clubs that joined us to make the day a success, and we do apologize for tje small shortcomings that may have been.
