Today’s round of games in the Global Sporting Projects (GSP) Basketball League marks the end of the 2016-2017 season of one of Ghana’s top basketball leagues.
Fittingly, the season is set to end with a bang as the title gets to be decided in the final game of the campaign between University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) and Suncity Braves.
Defending champions Braves has had a tough time defending its title particularly in the second round unlike last season where the side clinched the title with an undefeated run.
The side lost two games which reduced its lead over UENR to just a point heading into the crucial tie.
UENR lie second in the standings with 22 points just a point behind Braves total point haul for the season.
However, interesting battles will be fought prior to the game as teams get into action on a busy day for the division.
Barracks Scorpions begin affairs with a tie against West Siders with Scorpions needing a win to move up from seventh spot in the standings while West Siders need the win to maintain its spot in the top half.
Sunyani Technical University (STU) will be engaged in an all tertiary affair as it plays Catholic University College, Ghana (CUCG) Saints before LIR Royals take on Desert Rabbits.
