Basketball; Coldstore takes down Police as Heat outlast Navy in Tema League
Defending Tema Basketball League Champions Nungua Coldstore have registered another key win in its title defense beating Ghana Police 53-23 in the headline game of today’s round of games.
The Tema Community 4 Court held the exciting round of games that had Don Bosco Giants fall 20-41 to the home side in the opening game before Teshie Rangers recorded a second straight win courtesy a 40-30 win over Community 5.
Tema Heat beat Ghana Navy 39-32 in another top duel with the loss being Navy’s second in the league.
For Police, losing to Coldstore is the side’s first of the season having won six games in the lead up to the crunch game.
Nungua Shooting Guard Emmanuel Wolff got the reigning champions up and running with a pair of three point shots before adding an assist to his tally off a tailored bounce pass to Kwame Boamah Djan for a layup.
Djan completed a three point play to give Nungua an 18-6 first quarter lead. Members of Coldstore’s deep roster took turns to take apart a visibly frustrated Police side who had very few answers as Jonathan Walker, Edwin Appiah and Enoch Borsah sank three point shots.
Appiah caught the eye with nifty Eurosteps before Center/Forward Kofi Agyei put an exclamation point on Nungua’s win connecting on an alley oop pass from Guard Nana Agyei Afriyie to slam the ball home two handed.
