The Accra Basketball League Men’s Division I officially ended on Wednesday September 28, 2016 with Braves of Customs earning a win by default after the side and Tudu Magic failed to show up for the final game of the season.
The game was rearranged to tip off at 14:00 GMT at the Lebanon House Court after two prior attempts ended up being cancelled due to rain. Both teams were reached on the new date but failed to show up for the game which earned Braves the win after the side led 22-20 in the second half before getting rained off.
With that Braves earns a perfect record with nine wins from nine games and hands Magic a third loss for the season. Furthermore, the playoffs which were set to begin later today and October 1 have been postponed to avoid the event clashing with the Peace Hoops Basketball Tournament currently taking place at the same venue.
The new dates released for games run between October 5 and October 8. The results also means the playoff fixtures remain unchanged with Braves set to meet Teshie Rangers again after demolishing the side in the regular season 100-36. Magic will play Reformers of Prisons. Below is a full list of playoff games in the first round.
