The team topped Zone 3 in this year’s Championship to make it to the next round which will be played in Accra in April.
UEW hosted and topped the zone on the back of three straight wins in impressive fashion after failing to do so in previous editions.
The host team beat Cape-Coast Technical University (CCTU) 55-37 in the opening game before beating KAAF University College 46-42.
With Regent University College of Science and Technology recording two straight wins, the matchup against UEW was to decide the zone’s winner.
UEW clinched a 52-35 win to make it to the latter round; UEW led from start to finish but had it easy late on in the game as Regent wilted away.
This means three of the eighty zones in the preliminary stage have been concluded with Takoradi Technical University and All Nations University College progressing from Zones 1 and 2 respectively.
UEW 55-37 CCTU
Regent 35-25 KAAF University College
UEW 46-32 KAAF
CCTU 39-51 Regent
KAAF 24-40 CCTU
UEW 52-35 Regent
