Tonny Drilleba tops the National Basketball League three point shooter.
Westnile’s Tonny Drilleba is leading the league in three pointers made (26) this season despite having played three games less.
Drilleba is averaging 12.7 points per game this season, Lumanyika (10.8 pts, 12.3 rebounds) and Ruak (10.6) are the other two Oilers who are averaging double figures in scoring.
City Oilers Shooting Guard Tonny Drilleba garnered a team high 21 points to help his side return to winning ways with a hard fought win over JKL Dolphins in a Tusker Lite sponsored NBL tie at Indoor Arena in Lugogo.
Drilleba who was 5-of-11 from deep, shot two deep threes in the last quarter as Oilers tried to widen their advantage down the stretch.
Ivan Lumanyika bagged a double double of 15 points and 18 rebounds as Oilers held on against a JKL Dolphins side that died fighting.
Cheered on by a section of fans, JKL scored 15 points in each of the first three quarters to tie the game 45-all going into the last quarter.
But Oilers thrived on Drilleba’s class and quick ball movement to get an edge in a game that saw both sides shoot blanks in the opening four minutes of the first quarter.
Oilers who return to winning ways against Our Saviour have the record shooter on good form.
