Francophone (black) v Rangers
2018 Tema Community Basketball League debutant, Francophone Stars have sealed a spot in the top four places in the just ended regular season.

The team placed fourth after 24 weeks of competition came to an end this past weekend at the Tema Community 4 Court.

Stars recorded 10 wins and eight losses in 18 games in its maiden run in the league. The record was good enough to pip defending champions Community 4 to the fourth seed.

Francophone and C4 shared the same record and had to be separated by goals with Stars registering +6 goals and C4 recording -6 goals.

Stars announced itself to the league with a couple of impressive performances against first seed and 2016 champions Nungua Coldstore.

Francophone lost the first matchup 48-50 in overtime and proceeded to clinch a win in the second round ending Nungua’s unbeaten run.

Community 4 lost 29-37 to Francophone in one of the standout games of the regular season. Francophone and fellow debutant Teshie Vikings will feature in the playoffs.

Vikings clinched the seventh seed.
