Ashaiman Lions take on Tema Community 4 in the semifinals of the Battle Grounds Tournament today at Tema’s Community 4 Court.
The crunch game is the second semifinal matchup in the day with former Tema Basketball League Champions Nungua Coldstore taking on Teshie Rangers.
Rangers tie against Coldstore tips off at 15:00 GMT; Coldstore head to the game with an unbeaten three game streak.
However, the bigger matchup of the round is the 2017 League Finals between Lions and C4; the latter beat Ashaiman in two straight games to clinch the title.
However, Lions have been active since that loss and successful to boot. The team won the Campaign Tournament in December last year and qualified from the Battle Grounds preliminary stage with an unblemished record in three games.
Ashaiman is hell bent on atoning for the losses in last year’s league final series and despite not playing at its best level, Community 4 is hoping to be in the best shape to defend its title with the 2018 season opening date around the corner.
