The long standing rivalry between Nungua Coldstore and Ashaiman Lions is likely to be rekindled ahead of the 2018 Tema Basketball League campaign.
Both teams are yet to be beaten in the ongoing preseason event-Battle Grounds Tournament-at Tema’s Community 4 Court.
The final game will be played on March 11 between the winner of Groups A and B respectively in the competition.
Coldstore lead Group B after recording two wins in as many games against reigning Tema League champions Community 4 and Team Heat.
C4 lost 23-38 to Nungua in the opening round and Heat lost 28-58 to Coldstore in the last round played in the immediate past weekend.
Lions on the other hand, beat Tema Community 2 32-23 after clinching a 37-31 win over Teshie Rangers in the first round.
Lions have lost twice in the Tema League but won the first preseason competition played in December last year and is aiming at a second pre league campaign trophy.
Coldstore denied Lions the league title in 2016.
