KETABUSCO beats Mfantsipim to lift Sprite Ball title

Keta Business College (KETABUSCO) has beaten Mfantsipim School for the second time to clinch the 2020 Sprite Ball Championship.

KETABUSCO beat Mfantsipim 48-40 in the Boys Division Final game before a packed El Wak Stadium in Ghana’s capital, Accra.

Mfantsipim trailed through the entire contest finding it hard to get into the KETABUSCO painted area and was forced to score from three point range which proved unsuccessful till the final quarter.

Nana Opoku Amusah drained a pair of three point shots to make the contest close after KETABUSCO looked to run away with a double digit win margin.

Richmond Dzikunu proved a live wire act alongside stalwarts Propser Davor and Prince Gidisu with layups off strong drives to the basket.
