Former Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Guard Emmanuel Ekow Amoako has stated the current roster is not as strong as those he was on during his time at the Kumasi-based tertiary institution.
He made the statement in an exclusive interview with Basketballghana.com after KNUST got bundled out of the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship in the first round of the knockout stage without a win.
“Obviously the KNUST team at the moment is not as strong as my time but that is only because of tournament performance… I think the school still has amazing talent and can do better. Honestly, while playing for KNUST, we had nice and talented players maybe more than this time” he said.
After placing second and third at the 2015 and 2016 UPAC Championships respectively, KNUST fell flat in this year’s edition as the side exited at the quarter finals falling to Marshalls University College, University of Cape-Coast and eventual champions University of Ghana (UG) in Group A.
Amoako was on KNUST’s bench during the ill fated campaign.
