In his closing statement in the interview, Coach Sam thanked CAL Bank, MTN and Decathlon for sponsoring the competition and made the call for other bodies to lend support to the growth of basketball in the West African nation.

Last year’s UPAC was expected to conclude in April but the onset of the corona virus pandemic forced organizers to indefinitely suspend the tournament.
