Coldstore (blue) v Rifles
Rangers topped Heat (white).

C2 (red) v Community 4.

Nungua Coldstore is the overwhelming favorite to progress to the next round of the Tema Community Basketball League playoffs.

The team takes on Akatsi Rifles in the second of a three game series on Sunday October 21 at the Tema Community 4 Court.

Coldstore run over Rifles in the first game with a 73-38 win as Rifles replaced Teshie Rangers as Nungua’s opponent.

Akatsi was listed as a non participant in this season’s playoffs but a late withdrawal by second seed Ashaiman Lions had Rifles roped in.

The team looked every bit unprepared for the game especially one against the 2016 league champions and this year’s regular season number one seed as Nungua had an easy time carving them up.

Nungua’s form makes them an easy target to progress to the second round unlike the remaining playoffs series which is close to call.

Tema Community 2 beat Community 4 33-27, Teshie Rangers beat Tema Heat 46-36 and Francophone Stars lost 33-36 to Teshie Vikings in respectively in Game One.
