The Dolphins have won two of their recent games in a row since falling 57-60 to KCCA Leopards, the team’s only dark spot on their impressive record.
JKL have beaten up on KIU Rangers and Javon Ladies in their last two games.
A1 Challenge has won seven in a row since their last league loss, coincidentally, against today’s opponents JKL on June 17th in Lugogo.
