Pope John Senior High School and Junior Seminary Basketball Coach Kofi Elias has stated he feels no pressure ahead of his maiden coaching stint at the Sprite Ball Championship.

The Sprite Ball Championship is Ghana’s biggest high school basketball tournament and the 2019 edition runs from January 11-12 at the El Wak Stadium in Accra.

Speaking to Basketballghana.com exclusively with mere days to the competition’s commencement, Elias opined he feels no pressure despite replacing James Okine who won two bronze medals in three years as the lead technical man.

“No pressure at all even though it is my first coaching appearance in Sprite Ball and I believe we can make it to the finals this time around. I think the draw was a fair one even though we don’t know much about one of our opponents that is WASS-West Africa Senior High School- we are much prepared to beat them both-opponents- and qualify to the next stage and eventually win the competition” he said.

Elias led POJOSS to retain the Eastern Regional title late last year.
