DAR ES SALAAM - (FIBA Africa Zone 5 Clubs Championship) - Rwandan side Ubumwe stunned Ugandan champions KCCA 70-59 in a very entertaining encounter on Sunday at the National Stadium in the Tanzanian city of Dar Es Salaam.
Both sides tussled it out in the first three quarters with Ubumwe leading 15-14 at the end of the first but the game was tied 28-all at half time.
Ubumwe broke away in the third to establish a seven-point lead at the end of the third period and indeed the experience of veterans Joslyne Munyaneza and Charlotte Mugwaneza came in handy.
The Leopards were undone by complacency despite Moreen Amoding and Flavia Oketcho scoring 20 and 10 points respectively.
In the other game, Kenya Ports Authority hammered Don Bosco Lionesses 114-63 to register their second consecutive victory having defeated Ubumwe in their opener.
Six players were in double figures including Hellen Oketch who scored 17 points while Linet Atieno and Falmasy Adhiambo added 16 apiece to give the Mombasa side a well deserved victory with an all-round dominant display.
Celine and Natalie Akinyi posted 13 points each while Belinda Okoth scored 10.
United States International University (USIU) edged Jeshi la Kujenga Taifa (JKT) 68-61 for their second win to remain on course with their tournament objective of punching one spot for the Final Phase of the FIBA Africa Champions Cup for Women which will take place from 26 November - 4 December in Maputo, Mozambique.
