The stage could be set for the latest chapter in the exciting rivalry between Nungua Coldstore and Ashaiman Lions as both teams prepare to play Teshie Rangers and Tema Community 4 respectively.

The big matchups will take place at Tema’s Community 4 Court on Sunday March 11 in the final game of the Battle Grounds Tournament.

Lions and Coldstore topped Groups A and B respectively after preliminary game of the preseason competition ended over the past weekend.

Both teams secured unbeaten streaks after playing three games; Ashaiman beat Ghana Police 49-34 in its final game in Group A after recording wins over Teshie Rangers and Tema Community 2.

In Group B, Coldstore beat Akatsi Rifles 53-36 for its third win following wins over Tema Community 4 and Tema Heat.

The grudge games offer Coldstore the chance to win a title before the Tema Basketball League commences in the latter part of March.

On the other hand, playing the final game offers Lions a unique opportunity to win a second preseason title after clinching the Campaign Tournament in December last year.
