Lions v Rockets (black)
Tema Rockets ambitions of playing in the 2018 Tema Basketball League playoffs is under major threat following an abysmal start to the campaign.

The team remains the only side yet to win a game in the season recording six losses in six games played at Tema’s Community 4 Court.

Rockets latest loss was a 25-43 defeat at the hands of Tema Heat in this past weekend’s round of games; the tie was Rockets third all Tema matchup this season.

Against Tema Community 2, Rockets lost 27-47 and conceded another major loss to defending league champions Tema Community 4.

The team was mere seconds from clinching a win in the opening weeks of the season but lost 37-38 to a late Akatsi Rifles three point shot after blowing 11 point lead.

With big matchups against Teshie Vikings and Francophone Stars set to come, the team’s chances of making the playoffs are fading fast bar a major turnaround.

This is the team’s maiden appearance in the league but has strong ties to the defunct Tema Community 12 side.
