A string of major changes have hit the Tema Community Basketball League playoff fixtures following latest development ahead of the first round of games.
Ashaiman Lions have withdrawn from playing in the playoffs meaning fixture slated for tonight in the opening round have been affected.
Lions were the second seed and expected to play seventh seed Teshie Vikings but the latter side will face off against Francophone Stars.
Vikings currently ranks sixth in the regular season standings while Stars has moved up to third place to set up the interesting matchup.
First seed Nungua Coldstore will be in action first against Akatsi Rifles at 15:30 GMT in a newly fixed game as Rifles moves into eighth place.
Tema Heat, originally set to play Tema Community 2, will face Teshie Rangers who skipped the daunting challenge of getting past Coldstore with the new fixtures set.
Despite the spate of changes, the postseason first round still has an all Tema affair matchup on board as Community 2 takes on home side Community 4.
Below is a round of best of three playoff games tonight:
Nungua Coldstore v Akatsi Rifles
Tema Heat v Teshie Rangers
Francophone Stars v Teshie Vikings
Tema Community 4 v Tema Community 2
