Nungua Coldstore takes on Ghana Police at 18:30 GMT in the biggest game today in the Tema Basketball League. The tie will be honored at Tema’s community 4 Court and pits the defending league champions Coldstore against one of the best teams in Ghana.
Both teams have been in good form this season as Nungua leads Group A with a couple of rounds remaining in the regular season.
Police lies third in the standings but has featured in fewer games than Coldstore and a win tonight is key to any plans of usurping the 2016 Champions.
Tonight’s tie is the second of the season between the teams; Coldstore beat Police 53-23 in an entertaining tie which got chippy many times.
The highly anticipated fixture offers Police the chance to get even in the series against Nungua. Ghana Navy opens the round with a tie against Don Bosco Giants and Junior Reformers play Tema Commuunity 5 immediately after.
Navy’s tie is the sole fixture in Group B for the round.
