Junior Reformers of Prisons and Akatsi Rifles are quite acquainted with each other even before facing off at the Lebanon House Court in Tudu in the 2017 Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division II.
Reformers romped to a 93-53 win over Rifles with several members of the team standing out in the exciting matchup.
Both teams feature in the Tema Basketball League which commenced earlier this year months prior to the ABL Division II’s commencement.
However, the meet in Tudu was the first fixture involving both sides since both teams are located in different groups in Tema.
Reformers are in Group A with the likes of 2016 Tema Champions Nungua Coldstore, finalist Ashaiman Lions and Ghana Police.
Akatsi is in Group B and has been drawn against the likes Tema Heat, Ghana Navy and Tema Communities 4 and 2.
Should either team miss the postseason, it will take a while for fans to see these two sides meet again in the Accra Division II.
