Tema Rockets earlier tonight beat Tema Heat in the biggest game played in the 2019 Tema Community Basketball League at Tema’s Community 4 Court.
Rockets beat Heat 49-36 in the standout fixture in the latest concluded regular season round of games; three other games were played.
Rockets bagged the win after sterling marksmanship from three point range in a clash between two veteran heavy teams in the league.
Guard Ebenezer Borsah led the way with six three pointers on his return to the team from a one game suspension. Daniel Amartey got in on the act by sinking a trio of deep shots of his own.
