Akwamuman tipped to dazzle next year

SONY DSCAkwamuman made a number of changes to their roaster to increase their chances of winning the 2013 Sprite Ball Championship, but they were far from a finished product.

The Eastern regional-based school made their debut appearance in the highly-rated competition after winning the X’mas Ball at the Aviation Social Centre on December 24, 2012 in Ghana’s capital, Accra.

Although they had in their ranks, Ghana Under-18 star Patrick Kobby Aryeetey on their bench, there are still few sticky question marks and room for improvement in some key positions.

Officials of Akwamuman did a great job of addressing their deficiencies from the X’mas Ball.

Kobby was brought in to shore up the point guard position, an area that has plagued the side for some time.

Despite their upgrades, small forward is still an area of concern for Akwamuman.

Perhaps their nerve-racking victory over champions Mfantsipim in their group A game was their best performance witnessed during the two-day competition.

With an inspirational performance from captain Patrick Kobby Aryeetey, Akwamuman hogged the headlines with a great comeback that shook the foundations of the El-Wak Sports Stadium.

They were however unable to qualify to the knockout phase after Keta Business School stole the march off them by just 2 baskets to secure qualification alongside Mfantsipim.

The signals are bright for Akwamuman and will look ahead to next year with some sense of pride and optimism.
