Ampiah, a member of the Hoops Care Academy side that romped to success at last year’s final at the El-Wak stadium wants his colleagues to adopt a positive approach towards Saturday’s final at the Aviation Social Centre.
Catholic Jubilee Junior High School grabbed the headlines last week Friday when they triumphed at the maiden edition of the Milo Junior Ball in the Central region at Victoria Park, and there have been massive talk about their ability to win the grand finale because of the high standard of play that they exhibited at the Hoops Care International basketball court.
But Ampiah wants to remain cautious about their chances and leave nothing to chance.
‘We have to approach the grand finale as if our very lives depends on it and don’t’ want us to think we can win easily. All the teams that have qualified are equally good and should be taking seriously’. the 14-year-old told BASKETBALLghana.com.
‘The fact that we had a good championship in the Central region does not give us an automatic chance to win the grand finale. We don’t need to listen to what all the positive people are saying to get swollen headed. We need to continue to train seriously and play our game to the best of our ability and then we’ll see how it goes eventually.
