Wisconsin International University College has been disqualified from competing at the onhoing Private Universities Sports Association Games (PUSAG) basketball competition after fielding an unqualified player.
The recently established tertiary institution’s Male Basketball Team failed to provide the necessary documents to prove a player whose name has been withheld, is a student of the University. The team made it through the preliminary stages after clinching a vital 16-12 win over Central University.
However, Central protested and inquired about the eligibility of six players on the Wisconsin team.
Wisconsin backed five students with certified documents proving they are students but failed to provide the necessary paperwork on one player leading to the disqualification.
Central University has been rewarded with a quarterfinal as a replacement for Wisconsin International and is set to face Islamic University College in the final round of games at the knockout stage.
The 10th PUSAG is taking place at the Cape-Coast Sports Stadium with over 30 Private Universities in Ghana competing.
Marshalls University College are the defending basketball champions.
