KAMPALA (FIBA Africa Champions Cup Women 2017) - Anne Rose Lumutu netted 19 points, picked nine rebounds and made six assists to inspire Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) to victory over a hapless Horseed side 85-32 on Thursday at the ongoing FIBA Africa Zone 5 Club Championship.
Horseed did not poise any challenge to the Mombasa based side who were the clear favorites to win this tie but it was the urgency to establish a decent scoreline that could come in handy if goal difference is put in question to determine the table standings.
Georgia Otieno Adhiambo registered an impressive double double with 15 assists and made 10 points while Felmas Koranga Adhiambo added 10 points to ensure KPA brought their number of wins to three in four games.
The flamboyant Jamad Fiin Husseam netted a game high 23 of Horseed's 32 points but her efforts were not enough to get them their first win at the tournament.
The unbeaten UCU Lady Canons defeated APR of Rwanda 88-50 to improve their win ratio to 4-0 and edge closer to a dream place among the top two teams at the regional competition and a chance to represent Uganda at the FIBA Africa Champions Cup Women 2017 set to be held in Angola next month.
Lady Canons shooting guard Judith Nansobya finally found her mojo and scored 19 points while center Vilma Achieng added 18 points. Ritah Imanishimwe and Annet Among contributed 11 points apiece.
KCCA Leopards were in ruthless mode when they handed Tanzania's Don Bosco a 91-39 defeat to stay on course for a coveted place in the top two but winning all their remaining two games will be a matter of precaution.
Equity Hawks and UCU Lady Canons are yet to lose a game and have racked up four straight wins while KPA and KCCA Leopards have a 3-1 record so far with each remaining with two more games.
