– Pacesetters take on Scorpions in feature game
The much-anticipated continuation of the Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association (GABA) League gets underway tonight under floodlights with three Division III games at the refurbished Burnham Basketball Court, scheduled to begin around 6pm.
President of the GABA, Trevor Rose told Kaieteur Sport yesterday that the minor hiccups, which affected the completion of games over the weekend, were all ironed out yesterday and some tests would be further staged today to ensure that they are fully ready.
A breakdown in the new lighting system on the court had forced the Georgetown sub-association to postpone the weekend’s activities, which meant that an uncompleted third division game amid Ravens and Melanie Patriots will have to bounce things off tonight.
Corporate giants, DDL, under their Pepsi brand, had pumped $1M into the staging of the League and a Pepsi Street Series contest among the four best teams emerging from both the Division III and I Leagues following their completion on Burnham Court.
With that gesture, and the repainting of the bleacher, construction of lighting poles for lights and extension of court surface, the League and Street Series became the next fillip for basketball, following the just-concluded Washington D.C Jammers tour.
The Guyana Defence Force and Nets will follow the Ravens/Patriots game while Division III top ranked team, Courts Pacesetters will challenge Scorpions in what promises to be a huge clash of basketball brains as Robert Cadogan takes on Vijay Panday.
Enthusiasts have waited in anticipation on the illuminated outdoor Burnham Court, which will be fully branded Pepsi. The atmosphere promises to be unmatched as competition and official game returns to the Burnham Basketball Court definitely tonight.
