Lions v Rockets (black)
Tema Community 4 walked away with the 2017 Tema Basketball League crown after beating Ashaiman Lions twice in the three game Final series.

On Sunday April 29 at Tema’s Chinese Court, the finalists will be involved in Week 4 fixtures in the 2018 league season.

Lions take on Tema Heat in the biggest matchup of the round while Community 4 go up against Tema Rockets in the third of four games to be played at the venue.

Both teams are yet to be beaten this season with Community 4 recording a pair of wins over Akatsi Rifles to begin the season.

Ashaiman on the other hand beat Rockets 38-29 for its second win and hope to welcome absentees from the Rockets, John Teye Okumoh and Elvis Pobi-Siaw, back to the team.

Like Lions, Heat is yet to be beaten this season in three games and maintained the streak by clinching a nervy 49-48 win over Teshie Vikings in the last round.

Vikings play Nungua Coldstore in the opening game at 15:30 GMT and Teshie Rangers play Francophone Stars to round up the games.
