Koforidua Senior High Technical School Basketball Coach Albert Djan has indicated the drop off in the quality of players is affecting the school’s performance in recent times at the Sprite Ball Championship.
The school has in the past years been poor at Ghana’s biggest high school basketball competition and failed to progress beyond the group stage in this year’s tournament.
KSTS beat St. John’s School from Sekondi 25-16 but lost to Prempeh College and St. Thomas Aquinas in Group B to crash out of the championship.
This marks the second straight time the three time bronze medalist at the games have exited at the group stage forcing Djan to believe a gap in player quality at the national games is a reason.
He cited the presence of Emmanuel Wolff, Ekow Amoako, William Frankie and Summers Salifu in past KSTS teams as the reason for the school’s hitherto glorious success.
Aside placing third on three occasions, KSTS placed second in 2015 after falling to Mfantsipim School in the final game. He made the statement when he appeared on Courtside which airs on Ghana channel Kwese Free Sports on Sunday from 16:00 to 18:00 GMT.
