The semi-finals of the 2010 GUSA games will take place tomorrow at the main basketball court of the country’s premier University with eyes firmly engrossed on an opportunity to play in the finals on Wednesday.
Breathtaking games await fans as defending champions UEW battle Tarkwa based University of Mines and Technology in the first semi-final on Tuesday morning (8am local time) and host school, the University of Ghana clash with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in the male division.
There could be a repeat of the last final two years ago if both UEW and UG manage to negotiate their respective ties – and that could spark a massive climax to an exciting championship.
UG had their ego shattered two years ago and are bent on exacting revenge on their nemesis and as coach Essel Wobil told basketballghana.com that could be a suitable final.
But they are expected to have a game of their lives and with point guard Kofi Attafuah in full flight for KNUST; he could prove the catalyst for their defeat.
The young and highly unassuming player has thrilled fans with some amazing basketball skills and drills for the past three days and could be in contention to win the most valuable player of the championship. But of course he will face stiff opposition from UEW’s Meme Falconer.
Elsewhere, the University of Ghana ladies team will clash with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology at the semi-final stage while University of Cape Coast (UCC) takes on the University of Education, Winneba.
