The University of Education, Winneba (UEW) opened the defense of their GUSA basketball title with 28-25 victory over Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) on Sunday.

The exploits of young sensation Kofi Attafuah of KNUST has left an indelible mark in the competition so far. It was a huge battle between arguably the two finest players on display at the 21st edition of the GUSA games.

Meme Falconer on one side for the defending champions and the danger man Attafuah on the other side for KNUST.

With inspirational display from the young small forward, KNUST rallied around his ingenuity and gave their opponent a good run for their money.  UEW were tipped as the huge favourite to win but the score line underline the threat that was posed by KNUST.

Yes,  they were beaten narrowly but never disgraced themselves and their opening performance should inspire them to succeed in subsequent matches.

It was the perfect game to open the 2010 edition of the GUSA games and the competitive nature of the games on day one has clearly  demonstrated that the 21st edition of the competition will be the most keenly contested in its history.

Elsewhere, the University of Mines and Technology (Tarkwa) needed a last gasp effort to triumph over University for Development Studies (UDS) 35-34 in a highly charged game on day one.

Meanwhile the Univeristuy of Ghana ladies lost their plot in their first game after a sorry 19-23 defeat to the University of Cape Coast.
