Reports that the team's best player Dodzie Baniba was injured were confirmed by the team's manager Benjamin Baafi. "Yes, that was in the second game, but he's fine and is managing to play now" He answered on phone from Monrovia. "The guys are really making Ghana Basketball proud. They're playing very well and their composure is on point" He added.
