The 2016 Accra Basketball League Men’s Division I playoff semifinals is mere hours away from tipping off at the Lebanon House Basketball Court. With defending champion Braves of Customs taking on Reformers of Prisons and Tema Youth coming up against Fire Service, great individual matchups are set to dominate the landscape later today.
Tema Youth Center Sam Buodon’s duel with Fire Service’ Joseph Boye is one to lookout for in the second game of the round. However, the standout duel of the round is the one between Guards Elvis Pobi-Siaw of Reformers and Baniba Dodzie of Braves.
On face value, Pobi-Siaw features well behind the 2013 Most Valuable Player of the Year who has remained a constant figure at the top of the pile several seasons after his magical 2013 season. Both men can play as de facto Point
Guards with a knack for spotting the right channels to tread a pass.
Dodzie’s standout performance in the regular season game against Tema Youth will contend for the best performance after registering 27 points and four rebounds in Reformers 75-65 win over bitter rival Tema.
Against Airforce, Pobi-Siaw rained seven three point shots on the now relegated side leading Reformers comeback from a 7-24 deficit.
