University of Nairobi Terrorists' coach Eugene Genga has admitted that his side has a long way to go despite their 78-67 league victory over Zetech University Titans over the weekend. 

 The win pushed the campus lads from the seventh position to the sixth with 11 points from eight games. Kenya Ports Authority, who didn't have a game over the weekend, top the 12-team log with 19 points from ten matches.

"We are glad for the win but we shouldn't be carried away. We need to improve with time if we are to finish in a respectable position. We played well in the first half but had lapses in the second. My players have a lot to learn and they have to grow up fast or perish," Genga said.

The tactician, a former Co-operative Bank of Kenya and national team forward, said guiding young players is a journey.

He said the biggest task with the varsities is that players exit to new clubs after every graduation and we have to start all over again to rebuild.

"Sadly, they have to move on to the clubs, but we will continue the struggle of trying to make them better players," he said.

The match played at the Nyayo Stadium saw the campus lads take a 43-26 halftime lead and cruised to their third win of the season.

Collins Nyamwea posted 15 points, Pharez Adala 14 and David Ochieng 14. Titans' Keith Okola shot 15 and Thomas Ragen 12. Titans' coach Job Munene said his boys are still learning and he will take one game at a time during that process.  

In the lower division, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology ((Jkuat) trounced Kisii Raptors 65-61 while Swish nailed Western Delight 48-27 in the women's tie.
