UG beat UCC in the final game.
University of Ghana (UG) narrowly missed out on clinching gold medals in the female and male basketball competitions at the 2018 Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) Games.

The 25th edition of the games ended today at the University of Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale with closing ceremony of the multi sport competition held earlier.

UG’s male basketball team placed first ahead of University of Cape-Coast (UCC) and University of Education-Winneba (UEW).

Winning gold ensured Ghana’s premier tertiary institution successfully defended its 2016 title which came via a win over University of Professional Studies (UPSA).

However, in the female division, UG got piped to first place by UCC in the final game to place second with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) coming third.

Placing second in the female division denied UG the unique opportunity to clinch gold medals in the male and female divisions.

Despite missing out on the unique record, the performance is an improvement at the 2016 edition where the female side missed out on winning a medal.
