Rangers topped Heat (white) in Game One.
Vikings (red) v Francophone Stars

The final pair of games in the first round of the 2018 Tema Community Basketball League will be honoured tonight at the Tema Community 4 Court.

Francophone Stars is in action against Teshie Vikings in a clash between the league’s debutants who have impressed thus far in the campaign.

Teshie Rangers take on Tema Heat later with the chance to progress to the second round on the line in the clash between seventh seed Rangers and second seed Heat.

Stars and Heat were heavily tipped to progress prior to the postseason’s start largely down to both teams’ higher seeds at the end of the regular season.

Francophone secured the third seed but got stunned with a 33-36 loss in Game recovering clinch a 51-33 win in Game 2.

Heat missed several players including hard running Guard Philip Barley in Game One’s 36-46 loss to Rangers in surprising fashion.

The winners progress to the next round joining already qualified duo in Nungua Coldstore and Tema Community 2. Coldstore won the 2016 title.
