GBBA Vice Chairman Gamel addressing stakeholders at the meeting.

Executives of the Accra Basketball League (ABL) earlier today organized a brief seminar on rules and regulations governing the use of the shot clock which will be instituted in the league when the second round tips off on May 19.

The event was held at the Lebanon House with several representatives from league sides, players and coaches in attendance.

Ghana Basketball Association (GBBA) Vice Chairman Iddrisu Gamel was the main resource person at the seminar and provided deep insight on the proper use of the clock to ensure the overall development of the game.

As part of an extensive interaction, the GBBA Vice Chairman opined the basic philosophy behind shot clock is to ensure teams “attack the rim” frequently. That aside, introducing the shot clock helps to “structure our game”.

The seminar continues on Saturday May 13 at the same venue and will have several practical demonstrations with the shot clock.

News on some upcoming changes in the division including the start time were rehashed; the new start time for the second round in the Men’s Division I is 18:00 GMT.
