Basketball semifinals to play out at the Beeline Arena

The twice postponed semifinals of the Cambodia Basketball Challenge will be held at the Beeline Arena tomorrow with the championship game rescheduled for November 10.

The league phase leaders Sabay Salty Crabs will meet CCPL Heat in the first semifinal at 2:30pm followed by Raid Alaxan-FR clashing with the Phnom Penh Dragons.

Organisers were forced to put the last four stage on hold in the wake of the Pchum Ben holidays and the passing away of Cambodia’s beloved King Father Norodom Sihanouk two weeks ago.

The question doing the rounds in the basketball circles is whether this near month-long break is a boon or a bane for the four teams involved.

Preparations wise, the teams had extra quality time but there is the likely danger of the long break affecting their rhythm of play.
