Emmanuel Dickson has been named the Most Valuable Player of the Rush Community Basketball Tournament after another standout performance on the final day of competition at Accra Polytechnic court.
The Osu Hawks talisman showed effervescent abilities in all facets of the game to lead his team to an unlikely undefeated run to the championship title.
He averaged 17.5 points per game to rank third tied with teammate Benjamin Debrah on the scoring chart behind Teshie Lion’s Joseph Boye.
According to rhythmandrims.sportingpulse.net he ranked in the top ten in assists, two-point percentage and total points scored by averaging 3.0 assists, 50.7 and 105 points respectively in the competition.
Dickson often was the one who led Osu out of shooting slumps by taking the ball to the net on several occassions. In the game against Tudu with the score at 38-33 and the Warriors on a five point run, he halted Osu’s skid by scoring on a hard drive to extend the team’s lead to seven.
The tournament’s best player was handed a shopping voucher worth 1000 Ghana Cedis from sports wear company Adidas.
