KYAMBOGO Warriors, KCC Leopards and Crane High School are just one win away from being crowned MTN-Fuba League champions in their respective divisions but what lies ahead is the most daunting task.

The trio lead the best of five final play-off series 2-1 and face Mogas Falcons, A-1 Challenge and KCC Lions in the trickiest Game Four at Lugogo Indoor Stadium tonight.

Warriors v Falcons
Warriors took a 2-0 lead in the series and seemed poised to lift the trophy last Sunday but Falcons gave it their all and pulled one back after an 81-78 hard fought victory.

Henry Malinga was at his best, pulled down 21 points and is not ready to let go of the trophy without a fight. “Experience will determine who wins the championship. And if you asked me I would say Falcons,” Malinga predicted.

In other games, trying to stop Miriam Hamala, Becky Akullo and Linda Tamale is what killed 2005 women champions A-1 Challenge in Game Three.
They concentrated so much on the trio and Julie Sabano came off the bench to do the damage with a game high 17 points including 4-three pointers.

“We shall make good use of our bench to finish them off,” Leopards official Denis Karuhanga vowed.
