There is a lot at stake for teams playing in the final round of games in the first half of the 2019 Tema Community Basketball League.

Two fixtures are to be honoured tonight to conclude the first round with home side Tema Community 4 taking on Spintex Knights.

That fixture is due to be played after Akatsi Rifles play against Teshie Rangers at 17:30 GMT. The game has bottom ranked Rangers face off against Rifles who rank just a spot above.

A win takes Knights into the top four places while a win for Community 4 moves them from third place to second place and just two points behind league leaders Nungua Coldstore. Community 4 has 17 points while Knights have 16 points heading to the game.

A battle at the bottom half of the standings has a lot of intrigue as Rifles need a win to avoid getting usurped at the 11th position by Rangers.

Like Knights and C4, just a point separates Rangers and Rifles. The league goes on a week long break after tonight.
