Tudu Magic is looking to improve with each game in the league according to Guard Eric Quaye. The team won its’ debut game in the new season over the weekend by beating Air Force 43-40 in the Accra Basketball League Men’s Division I.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com in the aftermath of the comprehensive win, Quaye was impressed with his team’s performance but stressed his side was not the finished article yet but one aiming to improve steadily. He said:
“We are just hoping for better things and to improve with each game that we play”.
Magic held a slim 23-21 advantage over Air Force after half time with the team struggling to score in the paint as
Air Forces’ big men made life difficult for Magic’s defenders.
Coach James Okine once again showed why he deserves to be nominated for the Coach of the year Award in the upcoming Ghana Basketball Awards by introducing energetic Power Forward Evans Anfom to match Air Force activity on the board.
Anfom responded in the perfect way as his battles in the paint gave Magic an alternative option on offense. Prior to his introduction, Magic settled for jump shots and long three pointers to score in the game with Quaye and Point Guard Nii Koi Kotey doing most of the scoring.
By beating a very good Air Force side, Magic started the 2016 season on the best note and will seek for similar results in the upcoming weeks for a spot in the playoffs.
