Ghana Navy Male Basketball Team will be in action at the Lebanon House Court in Tudu against Tudu Magic in the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division I games today.

The game follows Braves of Customs game against debutant Adenta Leopards which is scheduled to tip off at 17:00 GMT. Navy and DC Dynamics are the only winless sides this season but the latter edges Navy having played a games less.

Navy has lost three straight games including a 50-53 loss to Leopards and a 65-72 loss to Tema Youth.

Having a strong team that features 2016 Tertiary Player of the Year nominee David Asingar, the side has competed well in all the losses but has failed to get a good start.

Against Adenta, Navy trailed 29-46 but lost by just three points and had several opportunities to send the game to overtime.

On the other hand, Magic will be on the lookout to end a run of losses the home side has suffered since beating Dynamics in the opening game of the season. Magic failed to beat Fire Service and Braves last week.
