Basketballghana.com can confirm the team representing Tema in the All Star Game at the upcoming Africa Basketball Festival has been released.
The team’s final list was delayed due to the final commitment of a couple of players who signed to play for the Accra Team. The All Star Game will headline the one day festival on December 24 at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Ghana’s capital, Accra.
The 12 man team is made up of players from the Tema Community Basketball League; reigning league champions Nungua Coldstore dominates the team.
Two time league winners Coldstore has four players including Defensive Player of the Year Kwame Boamah Djan and sharp shooter Emmanuel Wolff on the list.
2017 League winners Tema Community 4 and Spintex Knights have three players respectively on the team with Heat Center Mubarak Alhassan included.
Joshua Anang was a surprise inclusion in the team as a “Free Agent”. Knights duo of Elvis Pobi-Siaw and Emmanuel Ocquaye were surprisingly not named to the team.
Reigning Tema League Most Valuable Player Award Winner Benjamin Omari was not included.
Below is the full list of players for the anticipated matchup.
