Easily the oldest team competing in the Cowbell Fetu Afahy3 Basketball Tournament, After7 Basketball Club recorded a narrow 25-24 win over Cape-Coast Select side in some style and put the team back into contention for the coveted title.
Having lost its opening game against Ho Select side, the veteran team overcame a first half deficit to tie the score at 20 and go ahead for the game’s lead that the team held on to as time run out for the win.
Reformers Male side’s good play once again failed to produce a win as the side dropped to a second loss in the competition after losing 26-28 to Greater Accra Region’s select side. Shooting Guard Elvis Pobi-Siaw gave Reformers a 26-25 lead with time running out only for Steven Forster to complete a three point play and extend Accra’s unbeaten run to three.
Accra progresses to the latter stage of the competition but Reformers on the other hand will have to beat the losing side in the Ho-Kumasi matchup to make it out of the preliminary round.
The 2016 edition of the Fetu Afahy3 Basketball Tournament is sponsored by Promasidor Ghana Limited-producers of leading dairy product Cowbell.
