Vice-chairman of the Greater Accra Basketball Association, Benjamin Baafi has bemoaned the lack of recognition of the sports by the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) and has appealed to the association to consider honouring basketball heroes to motivate talents.
He said over the years his outfit had nominated deserving basketball players who won laurels for the nation for consideration at the SWAG Awards but none of them was awarded.
The basketball coach and manager said it about time the organizers of the SWAG Awards gave praise where it was due and awarded deserving nominees.
He appealed to the sport media to consider the successes chalked up in basketball in recent years and its promising future in the country when the awards ceremony takes place next year.
This year’s SWAG awards took place at the State Banquet Hall in Accra on June 29, 2013.
