The NCAA Men’s Basketball Division I regular season has come to a close and for a trio of Ghanaian NBA prospects playing in the American division, good performances was rife.
Temple University Power Forward Ernest Aflakpui has been struggling towards the end of the season but featured well for the Owls in a 72-60 win over University of South Florida.
The 6 foot 10 inch Forward played 21 minutes and registered seven rebounds and six points. Considering he played little in many games prior, this is an improvement. Temple plays East Carolina on March 9 in the postseason.
Ghana’s brightest NBA prospect Amida Brimah of University of Connecticut was in action for the Huskies as the side lost 47-67 to Cincinnati in the final game of the regular season. Brimah registered 11 points, six rebounds, an assist and a block in 36 minutes.
Ahmed Bashir was in splendid form as he notched 18 points, seven rebounds, an assist and three blocks for St. John’s University in the Red Storm’s 75-86 loss to Providence College. The 6 foot 7 inch Small Forward will be in action on March 8 as St. John’s take on Georgetown University in the Big East Tournament first round.
