Heat (white) v C4
2018 Bronze medalist Francophone Stars

After grabbing its first ever win in the Tema Community Basketball League, Tema Wildcats will line up against Francophone Stars later today.

Wildcats shocked fellow debutant Spintex Knights in the previous round with a 47-46 win at the Tema Community 4 Court.

Knights-parading a lineup heavy on big names drafted from teams in the league including Elvis Pobi-Siaw from Ashaiman Lions-were shocked by Wildcats in the clash of the debutants.

Coldstore won the 2018 League title.

However, Wildcats face last season’s bronze medal winners Francophone at 17:00 GMT with Stars coming off its first win of the season via victory over Teshie Rangers.

Francophone lie fifth in the 12 team standings with a win in two games while Wildcats rank 10th after winning its sole game played so far this season.

The matchup is one of four enticing clashes to roll tonight at the Chinese Court; Tema Rockets play Rangers first at 15:30 GMT.

Big matchups between Nungua Coldstore and Spintex Knights and homeside Community 4 and Tema Community 2 wrap up today’s games.
