The young enterprising pillar thrilled many fans at the centre court of the El-Wak stadium with some breathtaking performances that got many opponents scratching their head.
The irrepressible presence on both ends of the court for the ex-Hoops Care Academy graduate, made him the glue guy for his team in the 2012 edition of the competition.
He played nearly flawless basketball with close to eight steals versus just five turnovers, of which at least three came on travelling calls during the final game against Kumasi-based Kwadaso.
It was tough to sympathize with the crumbling of a big side that had come into the finals on the back of great achievement in the Ashanti Regional qualifiers- resurrecting a basketball culture that had never bereft teams in the Garden City.
He wasn’t just one of the most clutch players in the team but managed to score the highest number of buckets to the delight of many fans.
“I am happy with what we managed to achieve as a group and hope we can continue from here,” Duodu said on basketball TV
“The future is bright for this young team. My colleagues deserve a part on the shoulder for their immense contribution to the success of this team.
“We will leave no stone unturned in our quest to dominate this competition for many years to come.”
He was an intricate part of his team’s success. The young facilitator possesses a refined, smart game. Not only can he dish his opponent efficiently, but he can score when called upon.
While his skills and athleticism are undoubtedly deteriorating, his calm demeanor and championship attitude was priceless for his team.
Providing solid rebounding and gritty defense was the basic framework of his play. The ability of the 15-year-old to handle the ball is what really has got scouts drooling.
The 2012 Indomie Community Dunks will forever leave an imprint on the minds of local fans for the next 12 months.
