Ghana Technology University College (GTUC-Accra) Power Forward/Center Charles Annan has expressed utmost desire to work harder after he was recognized by the institution as the Best Basketball Player of the Year.
The prestigious award was presented to Annan, who doubles as captain of the team at an award ceremony to honour standout individuals of the institution. Speaking to Basketballghana.com, Annan was happy with the recognition but was quick to embrace the nuances of receiving such awards. He said:
“The institution and coach I played under were able to see the greatness in thereby award my efforts then it’s should be a wakeup call for me to keep working harder and improve”.
GTUC failed to make it out of the preliminary stage of the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship following defeats to Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) and Pentecost University College.
However, the team bounced back in style in the Private Universities Students Association Games (PUSAG) basketball competition by beating Central University 21-18 in the quarter final before losing 18-19 to Marshalls University College in the semis.
The team which also featured 2015 Tertiary Player of the Year nominee Kingsley Quist, claimed bronze ahead of Regent University College.
