Sagoe inspires Hoops to clinch JBC

For the thousands of fans who witnessed the just ended Milo Junior Ball Championsip at the El-Wak stadium, the exploits of one talent will not go unnoticed after he left an indelible mark in the history of the 2010 edition of the most prestigious basketball championship for basic schools in Ghana.

Benjamin Sagoe of the Hoops Care International School at Cape Coast was arguably the championship’s best player. His transcendent piece of skills, dribbling abilities, amazing stamina and character showed throughout the championship and won the fans over.

Even though their semi-final meeting wih defending champions Great Lampety Mills was deemed as their last in the competition due to the pedigree of the Abosey-Okai based school, he exhibited tremendous character to inspire his team to record a famous victory over the defending champions.

The performance of the 14-year-old point guard has left an ineffable impression that will almost be impossible to remove for years to come.

His talent was the talking point at the championship and reports claim he could earn a scholarship to one of the colleges in the United States of America.

Sagoe told basketballghana.com in an exclusive interview after his dazzling performances at the just ended Milo Junior Ball Championship that he was thrilled with his performance.

‘I am happy a lot of people loved me and made a lot of noise anytime I had the ball and that excite me.’

‘Serious training has being my hallmark all this while and I will continue to train and improve on my performance.’

‘I will like to say that it was not all by me but the entire team who put in their best.’

‘I am grateful to God for his help and mercies and I am looking forward to a great basketball career in the future.’

Milo Junior Ball 2010 was sponsored by MILO – the energy food drink of future champions with support from Indomie, Fan Milk, Voltic, GTV and Joy FM and produced by Rite Multimedia, leaders in basketball development in Ghana.
