In the space of a fortnight, Ghana's basketball organization has lost two legendary figures following the untimely deaths of Matthias Ocloo and Benjamin Baafi.

Both administrators passed away in the nation's capital, Accra after battling ailments for some months. Ocloo passed away on February 16 while Baafi died on March 1. Ocloo was a founding father of the Accra Basketball League and served in many roles as a referee, coach and manager.

He coached several sides including CYO, St. Mary's High School and University of Ghana. He also managed Ghana's National Female Basketball team and was the Acting Chairman of the country's Basketball Referees Association.

Baafi on the other hand was the Accra League's Administrator and doubled as Sports Director of the Ghana Revenue Authority. As Manager of Braves of Customs in the Men's Division I and Women's Division, he successfully led Braves to multiple championships in both divisions.

Both men have been honored at the Ghana Basketball Awards; Ocloo was presented with the Dedication and Valour Award in 2013 and Baafi won the Award in 2016.
