After failing to progress beyond the zonal stage of the 2018 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship, Marshalls University College is reportedly turning its attention to this year’s PUSAG.

Marshalls is the defending male basketball champion of the Private Universities Sports Association Games following last year’s win at the Robert Mensah Stadium in Cape-Coast.

The 2018 PUSAG runs from April 2-6 and is set to be held at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi with athletes competing in several sports disciplines.

Marshalls will be heading to this year’s competition as a major threat despite its missing out on progressing further in the UPAC after winning PUSAG’s male basketball competition in 2016 and 2017.

The team lost 14-16 to Ghana Technology University College (GTUC) in a decider this past week in the UPAC preliminary stage.

Marshalls placed second overall in the 2017 UPAC edition but will not get the chance for another extensive run this time around.

It could turn out quite differently in Kumasi for the side next month.
