Nine-time champions CEPS and Hoops are among the top sides in action this weekend in the Greater Accra basketball series.

Custom Excise and Preventive Services (CEPS) remain the only side yet to lose grounds after eleven rounds of matches and looks set to keep their record intact with a game against Fire on Saturday.

Coach Braimah Lawah’s side has been peerless in the current campaign and looks the likely candidate to clinch their 10th consecutive title.

They face a side which has dropped their guard seven times in the season and have managed to record four wins.

It should be business as usual for second placed team Hoops who battle basement boys Yotive in the second game on Saturday.

The only side in the league which resides outside the Greater Accra region are the overwhelming favourite in this encounter judging from their fine form in the series so far.

Yotive lie at a parlous 13th position on the league table and are involved in the relegation dog fight with Turbo Jets and Lions. They have recorded a single win from 11 outings and Hoops looks set to add them to their list of victims.

Yotive have struggled for consistency while the key to Hoop’s success so far has been their physical power and controlled aggressivity.

The first game on Saturday will see Holy Family battle CYO at the Lebanon House in Tudu.

There is little to choose between the two sides because both have suffered seven defeats and recorded four in their last eleven games and so should make up for an exciting one on Saturday afternoon.

But before Saturday showdown at the Lebanon House, the Prisons Court will play host to two exciting games on Friday afternoon.

Tudu based Magic take on Reformers in the first game while Panthers and the Police Service square off in the final game at 4pm local time.
