Ghana Power Forward Maxwell Amoafo has joined millions around protesting against unfair tratement meted out to black people in the world.
The University of Saskatchewan player protested in his Canadian base calling for equal treatment to black folks and an end to police brutality against minorities.
Amoafo displayed a placard with “Black Lives Matter” inscribed on it during the protest in the North American country. The shock death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis in the USA sparked the protests.
This comes on the back of Amoafo’s encouraging 2019-2020 season in Canada after relocating from Ghana where he starred for Mfantsipim School at the Sprite Ball Championship; Sprite Ball is Ghana’s biggest High School Basketball Tournament.
In his last campaign with the Huskies, the 6 foot 7 inch Forward averaged 6.4 points and 7.6 rebounds; his numbers were down from the 2018-2019 season where registered 8.7 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.
The 2020-2021 season is Amoako’s final season in College and an impressive season should open doors to a professional career.
