Maseno vs Bush 2
BBAL

The Pool of Death came alive today with Maseno taking on Aberdare Division champs, Bush in a do-or-die match up. Maseno had yesterday gone down to national champs Uppah 41 – 33. Bush on the other hand had started on a high note, demolishing Wajir 87 – 19.

So it was no surprise that the Bush vs Maseno clash was the most anticipated match up on today’s calendar. In fact, all other action literally stopped when this match was going on. Soon after tip off, Bush quickly took control of the match, and were ahead 12 – 9 by the end of the first quarter. Otula’s charges came out of the Q1 break as completely different players and they quickly overturned the tables to lead 26 – 23 at half time. Maseno didn’t look back after that, winning the match by a convincing 10 baskets: 52 – 32
