University of Ghana’s (UG) Female Basketball Team has fallen short of winning gold at the 2018 Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) Basketball competition.

The team lost to University of Cape-Coast (UCC) in the final game at the University of Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale.

Despite the loss to the Central Region based side, the result is a good one for the female side of Ghana’s premier university.

At the last GUSA held in 2016 at the University of Education-Winneba, University of Ghana was banned from the competition.

The team completely missed out on competing for a medal as punishment for breaching technical rules regarding the eligibility of a player.

The new look side which features Center Harriet Hayford and former West Africa Senior High School Sprite Ball Guard Asmawu Osman beat the likes of University of Professional Studies (UPSA) to make the final game.

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) placed third in the competition. Games in the male division are rounding up at the group stage with the knockout phase set to commence.
