Mfantsipim (red) against Keta
Sacred Heart in action against Mawuli

Players who represented Mawuli Senior High School and Keta Senior High Technical School have not been included in the list of names penciled down for Ghana’s first basketball reality show.

The upcoming show dubbed “B-Ball Challenge” is set to commence later this year with 40 players set to be taken through several drills to secure interesting packages aimed at developing their talent further.

The players were chosen from the pool of teams that compete at the recently held Sprite Ball Championship at the El Wak Stadium in Accra.

While all teams that competed in the male division had at least a representative in the list, no player from either school was called up.

Reports coming in indicate the notable absence was down to both participation in illegal practices in the competition and the move is largely seen as punishment.

Both schools had illegible players on the roster with Keta having as many as three players for the campaign and have been subsequently banned from the competition for the next two editions of the Championship.

Presbyterian Senior High School (Osu-PRESEC) won this year’s title beating Mfantsipim School 25-22 in the final.
