Fayed Baale recorded 19 points, two rebounds, and three assists on the night.

City Oilers made it four wins from four games following a comprehensive 88-55 win over Rezlife Wednesday night at Lugogo Indoor Stadium.

The win improved the Oilers' record to 4-0 to emphasize the team's strong start to the new National Basketball League season.

Point guard Fayed Baale, one of the team's new acquisitions, sent out a warning after Wednesday's game, suggesting the eight-time league winners will only get better as the season unfolds.

"Expect more. We want to win each and every game. We are just getting better," Baale said.

"The guys are hungry. Everyone wants to win. That's the mentality. We just want to win every game," he added.

The former UCU Canons guard recorded 19 points, two rebounds, and three assists on the night.

He is averaging 13.7 points, four rebounds and four assists after four games and remains one of the Oilers' key players.

"We came prepared, we knew what to do, and that's why we got very many open looks.

"We play as a team. We got a few problems and made some mistakes, but we corrected and, in the end, got a comfortable win."

Baale has been shooting the ball well and went five-for-11 from downtown Wednesday night.

Ruai Luak came off the bench to record 12 points, four rebounds and two assists, while Titus Lual got a double-double of 18 points and 15 rebounds.

Michael Ngut and Jimmy Enabu had 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Timothy Thok got 13 points and 11 rebounds for Rezlife, while Micheal Othieno registered 12 points, three rebounds and two assists.

While the Oilers improved to 4-0, Daniel Juuko's Rezlife dropped to 0-3 and will wait longer for their maiden win of the season.
