Over 150 elite male and female student-athletes from across Ghana, braved the rain to participate in the Seed Academy Ghana (SAG) 3×3 Basketball Tournament held at the University of Ghana. The players in the under 16 age category traveled from as far as Kumasi and Cape Coast to Accra to showcase their skills and the transformative power of basketball.
Charm Basketball Academy emerged as the Boy’s Champions while Basketball School Academy dominated the girls field and won the title of Champions.
