The skipper of Hoops Care International, Kingsley Whyte, has praise the determination and collective commitment of his colleagues following their triumph at the recently concluded Milo Junior Basketball Championship.
The 14-year-old player played a pivotal role for the Cape Coast based side on their way to be crowned champions for the first time in the competition’s rich history.
He showcassed marvellous skills and character on the court and his movement and dribbling proficiency caught the attention of all and sundry at the citadel of basketball in Ghana.
Whyte etched his name into the history books as as the first young man from the central region to lift the trophy aloft and he claims that will spare them on to do more wonders in the next edition of the tournament.
‘We played like a team and we are still revelling in our historic victory and hopefully we will come back again next year and try to win it again’. Whyte said.
‘ I want to thank the coaches for their direction and my colleagues for their total fortitude in ensuring that we are now being counted among the best in Ghana at our level’.
‘We will not allow this victory to get into our heads but rather serve as a huge motivation for us to achieve more next year.’
