Tema, in white, obliterated Leopards.

Magic (blue) lost 52-69 to Fire.
Should the rains hold and barring any unforeseen last minute hitches, two games will be honored at the Lebanon House Court in Tudu in the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division I.

League leaders Tema Youth take on Fire Service at 17:00 GMT before Tudu Magic plays Adenta Leopards in a series of games that wields contrasting fortunes for the teams involved.

In the opening game, Tema and Fire will battle to maintain their respective unbeaten runs in this season’s competition. Youth has won all three games in the 2017 campaign while Fire is yet to lose after two games.

Fire could have crept up on the top teams had the team recorded a win over DC Dynamics in the previous round. However, the tie could not be honored as renovation works at the Lebanon House Court prevented the game from taking place.

In the second game, Magic and Adenta Leopards will be looking some semblance of balance and consistency as neither team seems to have it. Magic started the season on a blistering note but faded along the way prior to a 50-38 win over Ghana Navy.

Leopards won two straight games before running into two straight heavy losses to Tema Youth and defending champions Braves of Customs; Adenta lost 46-100 to Braves.
