Ghana Navy Coach Alexander Tindani has stated basketball in Ghana’s capital city “stands tall” ahead of the remaining parts of the West African country when he appeared on basketball television show “Courtside” on Ghana channel Kwese Free Sport.
The technical head led the Navy contingent who graced the spotlight and discussed competing in the Accra Basketball League and other matters related to the league extensively with Host Yaw Sakyi Afari.
On the level of competition, Tindani said, “Having been able to witness some of the basketball in Accra and some parts of the country, I realize that basketball in Ghana stands tall…comparing to what is happening to Accra, Accra is far better”.
Navy sits bottom of the standings in the Men’s Division I while the female team is third in the Women’s Division.
Basketball is fast developing in the football-dominated nation but largely concentrated in parts of the capital region and coastal states.
University of Connecticut Center Amida Brimah, who recently graduated, is from Accra and Ghana’s first indigene to play in the NBA, Ben Bentil is from coastal city Sekondi-Takoradi.
Courtside airs on Kwese Free Sport on Sundays between 14:00 and 16:00 GMT.
