2017 League Winners C4
The 2018 Tema Basketball League season is just four games in but defending champions Tema Community 4 have been in blistering form and look to be the team to beat once again this season.

Community 4 has won all three games played in the ongoing campaign including a pair of wins over Akasti Rifles; C4 beat Rifles 64-46 in the first of two meetings this season.

In the past round, C4 run over Tema Rockets in convincing fashion to clinch a 50-20 win and score the biggest win margin so far.

The home side never trailed against Rockets and proved too much for its Tema rival to compete; C4 ended the first half with a 40-14 first half lead.

Contenders Nungua Coldstore and Ashaiman Lions have won three games as well but have not looked dominant like Community 4.

It can be argued Coldstore and Lions have played tougher opponents than C4 but last season’s champions look and play better after adding veterans Ebenezer Borsah and Josiah Karikari to the roster.

Borsah and Karikari played for Community 2 and Tema Heat last season.
