The special edition of the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship was played out at the Tema Community 4 Court for the first time ever.

Despite losing 32-47 to KNUST at the preliminary stage, Radford mounted a comeback in the third quarter to reduce the deficit to two points (39-41) and completed the comeback thanks to MVP Lawal Toyin’s marksmanship from three point range.

“It’s a very great feeling, seriously great. I think the first time we participated was three years ago…and we thank God we got this one” Sam stated.
