Big winners in the past round of the 2018 Tema Community Basketball League Tema Heat and Francophone Stars face off tonight.
The game is one of four scheduled fixtures to be honored at the Chinese Court as the regular season winds down; the postseason commences later this month.
Despite a slew of shock results a week ago, Francophone and Heat survived it and delivered a few shock wins of their own.
Francophone piped the talent laden Nungua Coldstore side 34-33 ending the latter team’s unbeaten run in the 2018 campaign.
Coldstore won the 2016 league title and placed fourth in last year’s edition; Francophone however, is making its debut in the Tema League.
Heat will be aiming at another win to maintain its top four spot in the league. Heat has nine wins in 15 games this season.
Heat beat defending champions and local rival Tema Community 4 50-40 in the last round. The remaining games have Coldstore taking on Tema Rockets.
Ashaiman Lions play Akatsi Rifles and Community take on Teshie Vikings.
