Two of Ghana’s young but best coaches will duel on the sideline in Week Five fixtures of the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division I at the Lebanon House in Tudu, Accra.
James Okine of Tudu Magic and Fernami Olulonyo of DC Dynamics headline an intriguing round of games set to have fans on the edge of their seats. Fire Service will play Navy and Reformers of Prisons will take on Air Force in other games on June 3.

Magic sit sixth on the table with Dynamics sitting bottom of the league without any wins.
Both men have distinguished themselves with a deep understanding of the game which has been imparted to players of the respective teams. Olulonyo oversaw Dynamics’ qualification to Division I by winning the Division II title ahead of the likes of Teshie Rangers and Adenta Leopards.


Since making their Division I debut, Dynamics has struggled to close out games despite starting strongly. The team lost its’ first game against familiar foes Rangers 50-52 and Reformers of Prisons 59-65. In both losses, Dynamics led for long periods in the games and even had a 20-4 lead over Reformers.

However, the team has excited fans with their team oriented brand of basketball that is characterized by excellent ball sharing and puzzling movement on and off the ball.


Tudu Magic on the other hand, has Okine working the tactical board. The outspoken trainer won the 2016 Private Universities Students Association of Ghana (PUSAG) Basketball Championship with Marshalls University College and guided the tertiary institution to a quarter final berth at the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship.

Having won a game in two outings, Magic lacks the fluidity and discipline of Dynamics but can shoot lights out from deep with the likes of Eric Quaye, Anthony Adade and Shadrack Kotey.
