The City Oilers continued with their winning streak in the National Basketball League with a dominant 88-55 victory over Rezlife Saints
The City Oilers continued with their winning streak in the National Basketball League (NBL) with a dominant 88-55 victory over the Rezlife Saints.
This victory marks the Oilers' fourth consecutive win of the season, cementing their status as the team to watch in the league.
Fayed Bbaale led the way with a game-high of 20 points, followed by Titus Lual, who managed 18 points.
Bbaale has been a standout player for the Oilers this season, unlocking his three-point arsenal with his 11th three-pointer in the last two games.
He credits the team's success to building good habits: "We came prepared and knew what to do. Building good habits is important for winning, and we hope to keep that."
Although the Saints showed some promise in the second half, the Oilers dominated the first half, mainly due to poor offensive execution and careless turnovers by the new team.
The Saints head coach, Daniel Jjuuko, admits his team struggled in the first half but remained optimistic. "We rushed our offence in the first half and gave the Oilers a good lead.
However, we showed much improvement in the second half, and a win will come soon," Najja said after the game.
Timothy Thok led the Saints' scorers with 13 points, but it was not enough to overcome the Oilers' dominant performance.
The Oilers will hope to make it a fifth straight game when they face the JKL Dolphins this weekend.
The Rezlife Saints are still searching for their first win of the season as they prepare to face the Ndejje Angels in their next game.
In summary, the Oilers have demonstrated their dominance in the NBL with a fourth consecutive win, thanks in part to the outstanding performance of Bbaale.
The Saints put up a good fight in the second half but could not overcome the Oilers' early lead. As the season continues, all eyes will be on the Oilers to see if they can maintain their undefeated streak.
