Two of this season’s National Basketball League title contenders JT Lady Jaguars and JKL Lady Dolphins meet on Friday at the YMCA in Wandegeya.

Away from the good quality in the two teams’ rosters, this is a super rivalry off the court.

Until June 2021, JKL Sports Franchise comprised of four basketball teams including the JKL Dolphins (Men) and JKL Lady Dolphins (Women).

Besides the two NBL teams, the other two were JKL Junior Dolphins and JKL Junior Lady Dolphins II that competed in the Lower Divisions.

In June then, the Franchise’s President Jeff Teya Nyagenya resigned from his role, then leaving with the two teams in the Lower Divisions.

Then Technical Director Fredricks ‘Freedom’ Owora remained in charge the two NBL teams.

Nyagenya renamed the two teams JT Jaguars (Men) and JT Lady Jaguars (Women).

Some Players from the JKL Lady Dolphins including Zainah Lokwameri and Namuwaya Muhayimuna joined Nyagenya at JT Lady Jaguars in Lower Division.

Fast forward, the JT Lady Jaguars won the Division One unbeaten to earn NBL Women promotion last season.

The JT Jaguars (Men) were promoted from Division Two to Division One.

Currently, JT Lady Jaguars sit at the top of the table with seven wins and two losses while JKL are third with six wins and one loss.

JT come into this fixture seeking return to winning ways after falling 53-58 to KIU Rangers on Wednesday at YMCA.

JKL who’s only loss came against KCCA Leopards, have since won five straight on the bounce.
