That’s the opinion of their team boss Eddy Teye, who fully expects hard games at the 16-team championship where two places are up for grabs.
The tough-talking coach guided the Betom-based side to clinch the title in the Eastern regional title last year at the Koforidua Secondary Technical School in front of a partisan crowd.
He displayed some antics on the baseline that caught the admiration of the thousands of fans gathered at the venue and once again he will be the key factor in their quest to win it on the double.
“I know there is some sort of pressure is on us to win it again but I tell you we’re coming out stronghly to defend the trophy,” Teye told BASKETBALLghana.com
“We’re coming to KSTS with one ambition: To win and nothing else.
“We respect our opponent but I believe we have a better team capable of winning the title again and hoist the flag of our country very high at the national final.
“I have a new crop of players who are hungry for success. I wasn’t happy with some of the cross-overs but we have worked on it,”
Some of the schools that will battle for the title include Koforidua Riss, Freeman JHS, St Dominic, Koforidua Presby, Madonna JHS, Islamic JHS, Pentecost JHS, Soul Harbourand KOVOC.
