Navy v Heat in Tema League.
Ghana Navy.

Heat’s Yeboah brings ball up court against Navy.
Ghana Navy is experiencing a contrast in fortunes in the two leagues the team competes in the 2017 Basketball season.

In the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division I, the Mariners lie bottom of the standings with just eight points from eight games played.

The side has failed to win a game in the entire first half of the season and recently lost two more since the second round began.

However, Navy has been on a winning streak since the 2017 Tema Community Basketball League began; the side has won all four games played.

Whereas Navy has been guilty of blowing leads including loss 61-62 to DC Dynamics after leading 26-6 after the first quarter.

Unlike the ABL, Navy has shown a tough mentality in the Tema league coming from behind to beat hitherto unbeaten Tema Heat 27-26 in the last round of games.

In a strange twist of fate, Navy ranks bottom in one competition but leads the eight team Group B in Tema.
