Maha, who won the best player accolade during the maiden edition at the El-Wak stadium last year, believes Coach Daniel Sowah has enough young lads capable of winning the title for the second time in succession.
Cantonment will defend the trophy they won in 2009 when they come up against sides like Ridge, Fadama, Nima, Kaneshie among others in the one-month long basketball championship for U-18 players in some selected communities in the Greater Accra region.
Maha, who cannot take part in this year’s edition because he falls out of the age bracket, wants the side to cease the opportunity to make history.
‘We’ve a good team but they must believe in themselves as they take to the court and do battle. All eyes will be on them as a result of our achievement last year and that is why they must live up to expectations’. Maha told basketballghana
‘In championships like these, one must remain focus and determined to do something for the community they belong and that is why I’m encouraging them to continue from where we left off’.
He added: ‘We’re the champions and any community that wants to unseat us must do more than us and possibly win all matches. But I’m positive the guys will fight to the tilt and not allow the title go on a silver platter’.
The 2010 edition of Community Dunks takes place at the University of Ghana basketball court from Saturday September 11-October 3 (and every other Saturday from 3-8pm)
