KAAF (blue) against CCTU
After a lengthy absence from the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship, University of Education-Winneba (UEW) will compete in the quarterfinals.

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

    In fact Ghana basketball is going into a new level but you have to see to the refereeing f such tournaments. I was at the UEW basketball court that was yesterday. Officiating at that end was so bad. All call was for UEW. Now there should have been all captains to meet and check all shoold ID card but in this case it was only KAAF University College that ID cards was checked and that was even done by the head of the officials.
    And this was what he said ( YOU GO AND PLAY AND WHEN YOU QUALIFY YOU WILL HEAR FROM US)
    Its so bad. Mr SAKYI you need to see to this.
    This tournament should not be even be played in the universities that are even part of the tournament.

  2. I am guessing this comment is coming from a KAAF player or fan. Indeed KAAF was the most indisciplined team at the tournament. They jump on referees and table officials all the time complaining about bad calls. I was there as well and i could tell how pompous and egoistic the KAAF team captain was. It was like a Lebron James in Ghana. The team vitually complained through out the tournament. They played a couple of friendly games on that same court against UEW prior to the upac qualifiers, lost all and in each case blamed thier loss on poor officiating.
    KAAF must understand that voilations and fouls are part of the game, a good team plays to win no matter the circumstances. Losers always find excuses. Better work on your game and egos to win games. Referee errors happen even in the NBA yet teams dont blame officials for losses.
    But wait were they expecting to beat UEW? Lol its good to dream big anyway.
    Best of luck in your future enfeavours “cry babies”
