Ghanaian Basketball prodigy Derrick Fiifi Quansah is getting settled in at East Carolina University’s Men’s Basketball Team according to Head Coach Joe Dooley.

He made the statement in an interview on the upcoming season that is sure to be affected by the corona virus pandemic. Players are allowed to workout individually with coaches who have gloves and nose masks on.


Quansah is set to feature off the bench in his first year for the Pirates since committing to the program as a scholarship recruit. He is an athletic 6 foot 10 inch Center or Power Forward who thrives on defense and scoring around the rim.

“Well, we’ve got two scholarship guys…Derrick ‘FiFii’ Quansah from Hargrave Military Academy. FiFii’s been here for about two-and-a-half weeks and Noah’s been here since Friday of last week, so they’re starting to get settled in and get used to being here” Dooley said.

Derrick resided in Cape Coast before moving from Ghana to the United States of America.
