Central University Captain believes his team has the potential to be a great force in Ghanaian tertiary basketball once the team completes the process of rebuilding itself after exiting the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship.
Following an earlier outburst in which he lashed out at the institution’s authorities for playing an indifferent role with the team’s welfare and participation in competitions, Larbie believes the team is going through a tough phase and will come out successfully.
“We have good pieces and I’d say we are a re-building team. In the next two years we should be ready for the grind and go head to head with the favourites of UPAC tournament” he said when contacted by Basketballghana.com
Despite having a huge brand in Ghanaian tertiary circles, Central University is way short of its’ contemporaries in the area of sports particularly with basketball. The team has consistently underachieved in competitions.
Central got knocked out of the Private Universities Students Association Games (PUSAG) Basketball competition last month before going winless in the UPAC Championship; losing to Marshalls University College and University of Ghana in Zone G of the preliminary qualifiers.
University of Ghana went on to beat Accra Polytechnic 45-44 to win the third edition of the tournament and breaking Accra Polytechnic’s hold on the trophy after wins in 2011 and 2015.
