The second fixture of the Accra Basketball League ( ABL) Men’s Division I regular season between Tema Youth and Braves of Customs has been scheduled to be played on June 28 at the Lebanon House Court in Tudu.

The archrivals headline fixtures scheduled for the second round of the league which begins on Friday May 19. After beating Braves for the first time in over five years thanks to an 84-78 win in overtime, a double for Tema would be just the perfect way to begin its title quest in the postseason.

Both teams are tied in the standings but Tema leads courtesy the stunning win over Braves despite Braves superior goal difference.

Both teams begin life in the second half of the league with games in the opening round. Braves are in action first as it takes on Ghana Navy who failed to register a win in the first half.

Tema Youth will be in action against DC Dynamics immediately after. The opening game tips off at 18:00 GMT.
