As the hours tick down on an eventful basketball season in 2017, Basketballghana.com highlights the top issues and events that marked the year.
Tema Community 4’s shock win in this year’s Tema Basketball League is one of the top draws of the ended season as the underdogs upset the odds.
Community 4 beat title favorite Ashaiman Lions in two straight games in the final series to clinch the league title with a fine display in the postseason.
Despite posting one of the best records in the regular season, C4 was considered an outsider in the title race with many writing them off.
However, tough balanced play from the team had it record eye catching wins over Ghana Navy, Tema Heat and the much fancied Lions side to win the trophy.
Winning the title required herculean effort and Community 4 pulled that off particularly in the first round playoffs against Navy with the team battling from a double digit deficit in Game 2 to progress to the next stage.
Point Guard Aninagyei Osei was named the league’s Most Valuable Player.
