The 2016 High School and College Draft ended just under a week ago but its effects continue to resound among educational institutions that partook in the four day event. One of such affected institutions is Accra Academy whose expectations were met according to Team Coach Curlsbonny Joshua Owusu.
The Rite Sports Limited initiative had hundreds of young talented basketball players converge at the University of Ghana to compete for scholarship opportunities in some of Ghana’s top rated high schools and tertiary institutions.
Owusu, who selected five players in all from the draft, was confident the draftees had what he was looking for in the pool.
“I was expecting to get a good Center, a good handler and a shooting guard and God being so I was able to come out with I think two for each of the positions I was looking for” he said in an exclusive interview with Basketballghana.com.
Other high schools who selected players in the maiden edition of the program included Pope John High School, Aggrey Memorial and Koforidua Secondary Technical School. Marshalls University College, Accra Polytechnic and University of Cape-Coast were among tertiary institutions that selected players.
Accra Academy’s picks will come in handy as the school prepares for regional qualifications for the Sprite Ball High School Basketball Championship tenth edition in January.
