2017 Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division I leaders Tema Youth has rounded off its last game before a titanic showdown with defending champions Braves of Customs on Wednesday June 28 by beating Ghana Navy.

The side’s latest win comes on the back off a 65-56 win over Navy who are yet to register a win this season and stay winless with a few rounds to end the regular season.

For Tema, the win comes at a crucial time following a shock 63-71 loss to Division I new boys Adenta Leopards prior to the matchup against Navy.

The Emmanuel Quaye-led side looked to be coasting to another routine win over the Division’s worst performing side but got pegged back in the final quarter by a strong Navy performance before managing to hold on for the win.

In the first round, Tema beat Braves 84-78 in overtime in an absolute cracker of a game and with the chance to score a double win over their arch rival, the game promises to be another thriller.
