Takoradi Technical University (TTU) Men’s Basketball Team Head Coach Dr. Owusu Ansah Ankrah has opined his team has a lot to learn despite winning its first game in the 2022 Western Basketball Association (WBA) League Season.
Nicknamed the Oilers, TTU clinched a 47-27 win over Oil City Kings at the TTU Court in Ghana’s Western Regional capital, Sekondi-Takoradi on Day One of the new season. (Click highlighted text to read match report)
TTU took an 18-4 first quarter lead as Kings struggled to score points en route to victory; all games in the league are played with a running time format.
Speaking exclusively with Basketballghana.com, Dr. Ankrah commended his team for the win but was quick to point out there was the need to improve.
“It’s been a good game but we still have a lot to learn. We are a bit shaky when it came to defence so I just told them after the game that we need to do a lot of training so on Tuesday we will come back we will try and do justice to the defensive lane” he said.
Seven teams are competing in this year’s league.
