Coach of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Tecnology’s male volleyball team, Annor Sakyi, says he is taking lessons from his team’s defeat to the University of Professional Studies, Accra.
KNUST had victory slip through their fingers as UPSA staged a comeback to secure a win.
The boys from Kumasi won the first two sets in the game but a determined UPSA side rose from the dusts and obtained a 3-2 win.
Speaking to UniversSports after the game, coach Annor Sakyi believed that his team was not psychologically up to the task.
“It’s basically psychological. It gets to a point when you tell players ‘do not be complacent even after you seem to be winning’ because your opponents are also here to play but sometimes you can’t tell what’s going through their minds until they exhibit it on the field of play”
Coach Sakyi further that mentioned that his side was a relatively young one and was still working on getting used to the game.
“We have a fledgling team and a lot of things will come as a new experience for them. This has become a new experience for them and I think they’ll learn from it”
“Also remarkable is that a key player had to be taken out to play beach volleyball from the time he left the team took a dip by when he came back that’s when we saw the fight,” he added.
KNUST is scheduled to play University of Ghana on Sunday.
