When quizzed on the aim of the team in its debut campaign in the league, Dr. Opoku-Antwi alluded to the team’s capacity to win on multiple fronts.

“Our aim is to still develop guys, build them from one step to the other and also to see if we can qualify to Division I” he said and commended fellow debutant Ashaiman for their effort stating “good basketball was played”.

Knights made its mark on the Greater Accra basketball scene by finishing second in the Tema Basketball League-a community basketball league- in 2019.
