Kitson Jojo Quashie represented Ghana at the 2017 Basketball Without Borders Camp in Johannesburg, South Africa and has noted the experience has added more confidence to his game.

In an exclusive interview with Basketballghana.com, Quashie made the statement after playing for Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in this year’s UPAC.

KNUST’s Male Basketball Team featured in the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship zonal competition recently.

The team topped Zone 5 by clinching wins over Kumasi Technical University and Garden City University College with a 100-4 result.

In his second year, Quashie has noticed the difference in his play during his debut appearances in Ghana’s most celebrated tertiary basketball competition mainly due to his weeklong stay in South Africa.

“There is a lot of changes because last year…I wasn’t that good but because of the experiences I have got outside, there is a lot of confidence now so I feel at least to do whatever I can do on the court and prove myself” he said.

KNUST has been drawn in Group A of the UPAC national competition alongside University of Ghana (UG), Ghana Technology University College and Takoradi Technical University.

The games take place from April 12-14 at UG.
