The Greater Accra Men’s Division I Basketball League’s postponement is a blessing for league side Magic according to team trainer James Okine. The experienced coach believes the extended time will give his side more time to whip his charges into shape.
The league was scheduled to start on Friday April 22 but the start day has since been moved to Thursday May 5 on the grounds of technical appraisal by the Greater Accra Basketball Association.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com, the outspoken coach pointed out the benefit of having an extended period before the league commences. He said:
“We were really prepared for this week but this has given us the room to work to work and rest as few of the guys participated in the just ended UPAC (Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges)”.
Marshalls University College duo David Asingar and Shooting Guard Daniel Oko Laryea put in a shift for Navy and Fire respectively with another of Marshalls prodigies Caleb Gomashie also on Fire’s roster.
The opening week will have Tema Youth taking on Fire with Magic squaring off against Holy Family and Navy taking on Reformers in subsequent games on Day One.
Defending champions Braves of CEPA will be in action on the second week as the team is scheduled to play Rangers.
