The Accra Basketball League (ABL) Women’s Division eight team roster has missed out on two sides after three rounds of the 2016 season. However, the “missing souls” are likely to make respective debuts later today at the Prisons Court in Cantonments, Accra. Police and University of Ghana have yet to take court for a competitive game since Air Force beat Navy 45-37 on the opening day of the new season.
Both teams have varied reasons for not playing thus far. Police has forfeited all games failing to show up on match days against Galaxy and Navy.
The playing body is currently embroiled in a tussle with team executives on whether to compete this season following what administrators deem an unjust treatment by league officials to the team according to reports gathered by Basketballghana.com. Police will be up against home side Reformers of Prisons.
University of Ghana on the other hand, has missed out on the fun nearly a month as games involving Ghana’s premier university’s female team has been put on hold. The halt was to enable students of the institution complete semester examinations. With a huge chunk of the student population having completed end of semester examinations earlier this week, the team is expected to debut in the 2016 season against Galaxy Ladies.
The ABL fourth round will also feature Air Force taking on Fire Service and Navy taking on defending champions, Braves of Customs.
