Baale, Odeke officially join the City Oilers


A few months after graduating at Uganda Christian University, both Fayed Baale and Titus Odeke Lual join eight- time NBL Champions City Oilers.

The two players joined City Oil from UCU Canons and also represented for the Oilers at the BAL Qualifiers, South Africa last year in November.

As a product of Ihoops basketball academy that is owned by Oilers guards Jimmy Enabu and Ben Komakech, it is not a surprise that Oilers signed Baale because he was scouted from day one as the heir to the ageing Enabu.
