Navy Warriors have all but secured qualification to next season’s Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division I competition.

The team beat contender Junior Rangers 59-46 in the last round of games played in Division II at the Lebanon House Court in Tudu.

The win puts Navy ahead of rivals Panthers and Rangers in the standings and in the driver’s seat to book a spot behind Reformers of Prisons and Ghana Police in the elite division next season.

Warriors rode a simple strategy and succeeded in trapping Rangers rangy Center Emmanuel Ocquaye several times in the game to clinch an eight consecutive win.

With 19 points and a superior goal difference over Panthers-who have 19 points- and Rangers, who have 18 points, Warriors could lose its final game of the season and make it to Division I since the team holds a head to head advantage over both teams.

Panthers can’t finish above Navy after completing its fixtures for the season with a 66-67 overtime loss to Junior Reformers.

Qualifying for Division I marks a big turning point in Warriors campaign after starting the season winless in three games.
