Regent University College of Science and Technology has ended its campaign in the 2019 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship on a high note after bagging a win over KAAF University College.
Host of the zonal competition Regent, clinched a 29-24 win over KAAF in overtime with the score tied at 24 at the end of regulation time.
The win was Regent’s first in the campaign after suffering a 28-34 loss to Marshalls University College in the opening game on its court.
Despite missing out on progressing to the quarterfinals of this year’s edition of Ghana’s biggest tertiary basketball tournament, Regent ended on a positive note with the win as they prepare to compete in the upcoming Private Universities Sports Association Games (PUSAG) later this month.
KAAF ended its run in the UPAC with no wins in two games after falling 22-30 to Marshalls and is yet to progress to the quarterfinals in the history of the Championship.
Marshalls topped Zone 3 and has secured a spot in the knockout phase. The 2019 UPAC is sponsored by CALL Bank and MTN.
