Second division outfit Georgia Blazers and the Heats are expected to open the floor of the “Best-out-of-five grand final” in the ongoing Liberia Basketball Association (LBA) League.

Both sides will rub shoulders beginning at 3:30p.m in their first meet at the open-air Sports Commission if there is a promising weather.

In the second game, all-time female champions, K-Delta will host Timber Wolves at 5:00p.m and Mighty Barrolle faces LPRC Oilers in the first division category.

The fixture is repeated up to Sunday and any victory a team wins moves the team to the crown in their respective category.

In the meantime, the fixture continues on Wednesday and Friday, the 2nd and 4th of July.

Blazers and Heats qualified when they won their last games against Uhuru Prince and Bushrod Bulls 80-77 and 55-54 points respectively as well LPRC when she dumped Pythons again, 68-66 points.

But Barrolle crossed overs owing to a awarding of points for an assault on referee Tus Dickson from Timber Wolves player Nicholas Koffa.

According to the LBA, Timber Wolves lost the points to Barrolle for supporting Koffa’s assault, incapacitating the referee and putting the entire gym in hostage.

The LBA Secretary General D. Allen Goodridge said player Nicholas Koffa has been banned for two years from every basketball activity under the supervision of the LBA and fine L$10,000.

Goodridge warned officials and players of Timber Wolves to adhere to the LBA’s decision to not worsen the situation.

Meanwhile, reports gathered said the management and players of Timber Wolves have threatened to disrupt the first division battle between Oilers and Mighty Barrolle for the alleged incorrect awarding of points to Barrolle.

The spokesperson of the ‘angry officials and players’ of Timber Wolves Josiah Dickson said the rules and regulations called for the fine and ban of the players as well as only fine for the players but not to award points to opposing team.

Dickson argued that the remaining minutes (about eight minutes) which left in the game should have been played after the scuffle between player Nicholas Koffa and referee.
