Asatu Senior High is one of the teams that qualified for the grand –finale of the prestigious Sprite Ball Championship and the performance of the young rainbow girls from the Volta Region pleases the team Head coach G.A Akahoho.
Coach Akahoho in a brief interview with basketballghana says his team was not among the top contender for the title but that they have learnt one or two things from the Volta Regional Sprite Ball Championship – experience- which they hope to take home and build on against the national event in Accra next month.
In appraising the level of the championship, Coach Daniel says the country’s female basketball has indeed grown in terms of skill and promised that Kasec will definitely make it to the semi-finals in the grand finale slated for the El-Wak Stadium in Accra.
Frankly, I’m impressed with the level of skills that was displayed on Saturday and it is a clear sign that the game is growing in the country and we cannot afford to be left out. Coach Akahoho said to basketballghana.com
‘I think it’s a departure of what we use to have in Ghana basketball in the past –we now have skilful players and good quality play from teams’
He added: ‘I will score my players high because they a group of young and inexperience players and I must say that we have not been disgraced by any of the bigger teams.’
‘My players have really made me proud despite the fact that we didn’t win the championship. I am pleased with their level of play and I know that they are now well-off in terms of gaining more experience for the next tournament.
