Official at the 2016 High School and College Draft Jaffar Adnan has noted travel violations as a major issue after the first day of trials at the University of Ghana basketball court.

The Rite Sports Limited initiative has been hailed as innovative and a fore runner to aid talented basketball players gain educational scholarships to top educational institutions in Ghana. Speaking to Ghana’s leading basketball hub,, Adnan said:

“I will say most of them were walking, they didn’t know the pivot leg, some were just fouling they would hit their opponents and push them. But if they are to have coaches to teach them, they will understand the game more”.


However, he conceded that playing for a scholarship may have been a major factor for the over aggressive style by the players.

Day two of the Draft trails begins today and players will be evaluated on shooting, passing, tactical and mental ability.

High schools set to offer scholarships include reigning Male High School Team of the Year St. Augustine’s College, Mfantsipim School, Pope John High School among others. University of Ghana, Marshalls University College, University of Cape-Coast have been tabled to offer scholarships at the tertiary level.
