The 7th Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) Games ends Friday January 13 at the University of Cape-Coast (UCC) in Ghana’s Central Region with the multi sport event set to draw the curtains down on 10 days of sporting excellence from seven of Ghana’s public universities.
The basketball competition has made the headlines in this year’s Games mainly for its venue; an aesthetic modern gymnasium located close to the institution’s Old Site has drawn rave reviews from many corners for its fit with current facility standards.
Completed late last year, the gymnasium puts UCC on the map as Ghana’s first tertiary institution to have an indoor facility; other courts in the West African nation are outdoor and prone to weather changes.
In all, the new facility hosted 13 games and seven teams.
However, the host team failed to deliver a title as the side fell 56-75 to University of Ghana (UG) in the competition’s final game.
University of Development Studies (UDS) won bronze with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) placing fourth.
