Regent University College of Science and Technology was in line to make it to the quarterfinals of the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges Basketball Championship before falling 35-52 to University of Education-Winneba (UEW).
Regent recently competed in the celebrated tertiary basketball competition for the first time as a late replacement for University of Cape-Coast who withdrew at the last turn.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com following the17 point loss to Zone 3’s host, Regent Captain Gabriel Ashaley was impressed with his team’s effort put it across the side needs to work harder.
“Well I think consistency; we weren’t consistent with our shots and fatigue set in a little bit because of the way we played two straight games. Some of us had to play the entire two straight games all through. I think overall, we have to work on our consistency and our stamina”.
Regent beat KAAF University College and Cape-Coast Technical University 35-25 and 51-39 respectively but the loss to UEW meant the latter booked the xone’s sole ticket o the next stage.
