Tema Central has emerged winners of the Ebi Bright Basketball Tournament by beating Flashlights of Tema New Town 44-40 in the final game played at the Tema Community 4 Court in the presence of Ghana Sports Minister Nii Lante Vanderpuye.

The sides made the final game after emerging victors in matchups against Nungua Coldstore (36-27) and Ashaiman Lions (58-51) respectively in the opening round.

Central grabbed a quick start by ending the first quarter with 15-5 lead as Forward Emmanuel Ofori scored a three point shot to cap off strong performances from Guards Aninagyei Osei and Kent Fosu; the latter scored on a drive after beating Flashlights Guard Kingsley Quist with a crossover in isolation.

However, Flashlights veteran backcourt kicked started the side into life as Benjamin Debrah and veteran Guard Patrick Gomerli led Flashlights seven nothing run in the opening round of the second quarter. The side did tie the score at 22 before Central's David Laryea scored all three free throws to earn a 25-22 lead for the side.

Matters remained close in the subsequent quarters with a four point Central lead before Kent Fosu's late three point shot gave the side a commanding 41-34 lead that effectively sealed the win for Tema despite a long three from Gomerli.

The one day tournament was funded by National Democratic Congress Parliamentary Candidate for Tema Central Constituency Ebi Bright.
