The Greater Accra Men’s Division I Basketball League’s postponement from its original commencement date has not swayed James Okine from spelling out the immense benefits of the league when it begins.
The league was scheduled to commence on Friday April22 at Lebanon House in Ghana’s capital city, Accra. However, the start date has been moved to May 5 to give officials enough time to technically appraise the league.
Despite the delayed start, Okine, coach of league side Magic sees the league as a major outlet to keep players particularly students in shape throughout the year. He said:
“Guys want to play the league this offseason to keep in shape for next year”
The affable coach who doubles as the head trainer of Marshalls University College has a huge representation in the league with the likes of Caleb Gomashie and Daniel Oko Laryea playing for Fire and David Asingar plating for Navy.
The league will have Tema Youth take on Fire in the opening game with Navy taking on Reformers and Magic taking on Holy Family.
Reigning champions Braves of CEPS will begin its’ title defense in the second week as team goes against Rangers.
