Central University College Captain Sidney Larbie has expressed his satisfaction with his team despite failing to win a four team tourney at the Aviation Social Center.
The mini tournament foreign scouts present to evaluate talents in Ghana, also had Royalty Elite Basketball Club, Marshalls University College and Blue Crest College compete in an elimination format.

Marshalls defeated Elites 34-20 in the final game to round off preparations for the upcoming Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship quarter final games.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com after the tournament, Larbie said:
“Our minds were opened to a lot of new things. We were advised on basketball, how to behave on and off the court and how far it could take us”.
Central University competed in the ongoing UPAC Championship and exited after suffering consecutive losses to University of Ghana and Marshalls University.
Marshalls will play Takoradi Polytechnic in the opening game of the UPAC quarter finals before taking on University of Energy and Natural Resource and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in subsequent games.
