  • Description

    A HIGHLIGHT OF LAST WEEK'S "FRIENDSHIP GAMES" IN ACCRA, WAS BASKETBALL COMPETITION BETWEEN THE HOST COUNTRY GHANA AND THE IVORY COAST.

    IT WAS THE VISITORS, HOWEVER, WHO DOMINATED THE GAME, PLAYED UNDER HARD AND FAST INTERNATIONAL RULES. THE IVORIANS (ALL WHITE AND PLAYING LEFT TO RIGHT) HAD LITTLE TROUBLE WHEN DEFENDING ON THE FEW OCCASIONS GHANA WAS IN POSSESSION, AND WHEN ON THE ATTACK, NO ONE COULD STOP THEM.

    AMONG THE SPECTATORS WERE GHANA'S DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF SPORTS MR. CAESAR; THE PRINCIPAL ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION, MR. HOYLE; MR. LOUIS GUIDOAROU A MEMBER OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPICS COMMITTEE; AND MR. CREDY THE PRESIDENT OF THE IVORY COAST BASKETBALL FEDERATION.

    INTERNATIONAL JUDGE, MR N S LABA WATCHED OVER THE GAME-OBVIOUSLY IMPRESSED BY THE IVORY COAST'S EARLY LEAD. THE GHANAIANS DID ALL THEY COULD BUT WERE BEATEN BY THE WIDE MARGIN OF 97 TO 30.
