Dugbennu receives MVP Award.
Djan receives Defensive Player Award.

St, Augustine’s College has a storied history in Ghana high school basketball; the school is a former winner of the nation’s biggest tournament Sprite Ball and has been a consistent performer over the years.

The Cape-Coast based school has produced a host of excellent players and two of such players swept awards at the Battle Grounds Tournament.

Dennis Dugbennu of Ashaiman Lions and Kwame Boamah Djan of Nungua Coldstore took home the tournament’s individual awards.

Dugbennu who led St. Augustine’s to win the Sprite Ball trophy was named Most Valuable Player of the Tournament while Djan was named Best Defensive Player.

This is Djan’s third individual award after being named League MVP in 2016 and Best Defensive Player in 2017; Djan was a member of the 2007 Augustine’s team that placed second at Sprite Ball.

Dugbennu is a former Ghana Basketball Awards High School Player of the Year and helped Lions clinch the first preseason competition-Campaign Tournament- in December last year.

The Tema Basketball League preseason tournament took place over the weekend at Tema’s Community 4 Court.

Nungua Coldstore beat Ashaiman Lions 44-36 in the final game to lift the competition trophy.
