After falling to Egypt in the opening game of the FIBA AfroBasket 2021 Qualifiers, Uganda badly needed a win to stay on track.

And on Saturday evening, the Silverbacks edged Morocco 94-90 behind a strong offensive performance from shooting guard Robinson Opong, especially in the third quarter.

Silverbacks and the Moroccans went into the game on the back of defeats and the first quarter of the match-up showed teams that were desperate for victory. No side could sustain a lead as it ended all tied-up at 15.
