Week Two of the 2018 Tema Basketball League season is filled with a pair of derby games which take place today at Tema’s Community 4 Court.

The Teshie Derby between Teshie Vikings and Teshie Rangers tips off the round of games today; the game is scheduled to commence at 15:30 GMT.

The derby was born ahead of this season following Vikings addition to the roster; Rangers played in last season’s league campaign.

Both teams head to the game in need of a win following opening day losses to Tema Heat and Francophone Stars respectively.

The Tema Derby follows with Tema Heat taking on Tema Community 2; unlike the all Teshie matchup, Heat head to the game with a win from the opening week.

Heat beat Rangers 51-47 while Community 2 suffered a 67-69 loss to 2017 finalist Ashaiman Lions; a win for Heat extends its winning run.

2016 league champions Nungua Coldstore get to play for the first time this season in a matchup with Francophone Stars.

Akatsi Rifles play Tema Rockets to round up competition in the second week.
