Galaxy Ladies will take on Fire Service in Week Five of the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Women’s Division at the Lebanon House in Tudu, Accra. The fifth round fixtures will also have Air Force play Reformers of Prisons.
Galaxy’s record (one win in two games) and standing-fourth- means the team has a great chance to move up from its current position as Fire has been anything but a competent team this season. Fire has failed to win a game in the league losing all three games played.
On the other hand, Galaxy has sown a lot of great play to expect a win against a Fire team which has Point Guard Carlyn Adjei as the sole bright spot. However, Galaxy can count on several instrumental players capable of affecting play at any point in the game.
In defense, the team can rely on bigs Naa Shika Moffat, Harriet Maama Hayford and Nancy Otibo to dominate the boards and protect the rim. On offense, Galaxy boasts a wealth of shot makers and creators in Karina Quanum and Selinatu Quaye.
One aspect that needs work in the team is the level of stamina. Galaxy’s crushing loss to Braves in last week’s encounter was attributable to a drop in stamina.
Navy and Braves will be inactive as their scheduled games against University of Ghana and Police have been sidelined for the season after failing to honor its’ games.
