Ghana Center Amida Brimah is confident heading to a crucial playoff game later tonight in the BSN Basketball League in Puerto Rico.

Speaking ahead of Game 5 tonight in the best of seven game playoff series against Vaqueros, the 6 foot 10 inch Mets de Guaynabo defender stated in an interview, “he can handle” his opponents.

Guaynabo leads the series 3-1 and a win tonight ensures qualification to the final series in the top flight league. Brimah would be hoping to continue his fine form since joining the team midway through the season after his run with Indiana Pacers in the NBA.

“The game is not just about scoring baskets, defense is also part of the game. Whatever the role, I’m going to do it. I have played at the highest level, they are great players but I can definitely handle them” Brimah said.

Amida’s performances have drawn praise teammate EJ Crawford and Mets Head Coach Brad Greenberg; Brimah won the national collegiate title during his time at University of Connecticut. (Click highlighted text to read stories)
