Competitive basketball in Ghana remains on hold for at least a two more weeks following the latest update on the ban on social gatherings in the West African nation due to the Corona Virus pandemic.
Ghana has at the time of writing over 1500 confirmed cases of infections and the ban has forced all sporting activities in the country to be suspended. The ban was introduced as a preventive measure to halt the spread of the virus and has lasted over a month.
The ban has hit basketball pretty hard with a handful of leagues suspended; Basketballghana.com can confirm the Accra Basketball League (ABL), Western Basketball Association League and GSP Basketball League have been affected.
The highly anticipated national phase of the 2020 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship is still yet to be played with six zones yet to determine its winner.
This year’s edition of Ghana’s biggest tertiary basketball tournament had Takoradi Technical University and Radford University College emerge winners of Zones Two and One respectively.
