UON’s Geoffrey Ouko, who took home the ZUBL MVP and men’s top scorer award, stirred the crowd with his brilliant performance during the intense battle that saw UON lift the title, winning 72- against MKU’s 68 points.

 

Speaking at the event, Sports Commissioner Gordon Oluoch applauded Zuku and the Miles & Associates International for the investment in local sports and running of an impressive league.

 

”It is truly encouraging to see the university students exercise their talents in such engaging tournaments confirming the role of sports in this country. We urge corporates to continue investing in sports within the East African region.”
