GHANA : Hoops win OT thriller against Holy Family 46-47
Week 3 saw Holy Family going up against Hoops in Game 21 of the Greater Accra Basketball League. Both teams coming out of a win the previous week but Holy Family already 1-1 for the season while Hoops 2-0. As expected Holy Family came with their top players knowing they needed a win to stay in contention for the championship or better still to be a part of the div 1 league next season as only the top eight teams will be allow to stay on while the reaming will be relegated to div2. The game was hard fought from the onset as both teams played good defense which lead to a low scoring first quarter. Holy Family lead for majority of the game until the fourth quarter when Hoops who were once down by nine points step on the gas in the last minutes taking the lead briefly. Holy Family fought back strongly sending the game into over time. It was déjà vu as last season the same happened and Hoops was victorious, therefore same this year and Hoops took the day in the end winning 46-47. Click here to see video highlights. Saykan Bestman for the second week, lead all scorers with 15pts and 5 assts.
