The reigning PUSAG Basketball Champions selected Guards Summers Salifu and Emmanuel Cudjoe Armah after the duo impressed following a four day workout where several prospective student athletes were taken through basketball drills.
Marshalls Coach James Okine was at the institution to oversee the players complete the registration process. After missing out on a final four place at the UPAC (Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges) Basketball Championship, management of the College deemed it necessary to deepen the roster.
