University of Ghana (UG) Men’s Basketball Team Shooting Guard Emmanuel Wolff ended his run with the team on another high note.

The UG Captain led his side to a fourth straight UPAC title over the weekend by beating Takoradi Technical University (TTU) 37-32 in the final game.

Wolff has been on all four UG winning teams including the legendary group in 2016 who started the incredible run with a 47-45 win over nemesis Accra Technical University (ATU).

As the youngest member of the group, Wolff hit the winner from a corner three point shot to set the ball rolling for UG.

Three years on and three more UPAC wins, the fourth year student is set to graduate later this year and summed up his run in a tweet stating, “I’m done”.

Aside winning the title, Wolff won the tournament’s Most Valuable Player Award for his relentless pressure on opposing players and dead eye shooting.

The lanky Guard walks away with two All Africa University Games titles and his jersey has been retired by UG.
