Heat (in white) v Coldstore

The 2018 Tema Community Basketball League campaign has come to an end in the aftermath of Game 3 in the Finals Series played over the weekend.

Nungua Coldstore has emerged champions for the second time after beating Tema Heat 53-49 in a close but exciting game.

Coldstore secured the win with a 2-1 series lead but Heat played all three games in the Finals without its star Guard Patrick Gomerli.

The veteran player was absent in the series due to his participation at the FIBA African Champions Cup Zone Three qualifiers in Cotonou, Benin with Braves of Customs.

The zonal qualifiers ended on Saturday, December 8 but were not able to make it in time for the crucial which was played a day later.

His presence was definitely needed in the final minutes of the roller coaster matchup as Heat blew a seven point lead with the game on the line handing Coldstore the win and league title.

Braves represented Ghana in Benin but missed on qualifying to the continental tournament.
