Sensational Agyemang on the rise

Young Dansoman centre Albert Osei Agyemang showed efficiency from the free-throw line during the 2012 Indomie Community Dunks.

The promising player was equally outstanding for Dansoman despite their failure to win the ultimate at the centre court of the El-Wak stadium.

The 13-year-old has moved from strength to strength ever since he emerged on the scene in 2011, displaying some delectable basketball.

The promising talent was at his usual best during the grand-finale of the Community Dunks held at the centre court of the El-Wak stadium.

He earned honours as Dansoman’s MVP during the regional qualifiers as he led them to bag  qualification.

Agyemang had an unrivalled ferocity on defense, finishing as the leading shot-blocker with an average of 1.2 per game.

The diminutive but versatile player followed that up with an improved performance in the finals and played an influential role as they placed fourth.

At the Indomie Community Dunks, Agyemang showed his attacking proficiency at the Greater Regional was no fluke because.

He showed some polish on offense, averaging 7.5 points and 10 rebounds.

He wasted no time in causing a stir in Dansoman’s rise in the competition with a dominanting performance for the boys in Black.

He was so confident that he stepped outside and drilled an amazing three-pointer for his team during their game against Kumasi-based Kwadaso in the semi-finals.

“It was a good tournament for us and naturally disappointed that we were unable to win the coveted trophy,” Agyemang said on Basketball TV

“We will take our performance in good stead and hope that we come back stronger to challenge for the title next year.

“There is not denying the fact that we lost concentration at some point and that caused us big time.

“But like I said, we have learnt our lessons the hard way and will come back with a renewed fighting spirit.”

Dansoman will be hoping that Agyemang continues to excel and will again lead the team next year since he still falls within the age category.
