Rifles, Francophone to face off in Tema; look to end bad run

Akatsi Rifles and Francophone Stars face off in one of four games to be honoured in the Tema Community Basketball League later tonight.

The clash involves two teams tipped by many to challenge for titles after impressive preseason campaigns but neither has excelled so far in the campaign.

Rifles lie fourth in the standings with four wins in seven games but have lost back to back to the likes of Nungua Coldstore and Teshie Vikings.

Last season’s bronze medalist and preseason bronze medalist Francophone Stars trail Rifles on the league log with three wins in eight games. Both teams high rank is mainly due to playing more games than a host of teams in the league.

Like Rifles, Stars have been poor recently; the side has lost three times in four league outings including a 25-35 loss to Spintex Knights in the previous round.

Both sides head to the game needing a win to reenergize their campaign. The game is scheduled to tip off at 16:30 GMT.
