Marshalls (black) won a hard fought game against KNUST.
Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has ended its run in the 2017 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship without scoring any wins in the prestigious competition.

The woeful performance represent a bad turn of fortune for the Kumasi-based side who placed third in last year’s championship and finished second in the 2015 edition.

KNUST lost 23-38 to University of Ghana (UG), 42-46 to Marshalls University College respectively and lost to University of Cape-Coast as well in Group A.

Former player Emmanuel Ekow Amoako who is part of the team’s technical team expressed his disappointment with the turn of events.

Amoako played on the 2015 and 2016 teams but there was no joy in this year’s edition.

UG and Marshalls University College have qualified to the semifinals where UG plays University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) and Marshalls play Accra Technical University.
