University of Ghana (UG) retained their UPAC title for the third time after defeating Accra Technical University in the finals of the 2018 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship held on Saturday.
UG beat ATU 41-46 in the final game of the 2018 UPAC Championship to clinch it third title becoming the first team to win the treble in the competition’s history.
At the end of the first half, Accra Technical led 27-20 after two quarters played.
Emmanuel Wolff led onslaught in the third quarter got UG back in the game and tied on 31 heading to the final quarter.
Kwame Opoku who shared the Most Valuable Player Award with Wolff, took over in the fourth quarter with his four point play proving to be the game changer.
While UG continued to impress, ATU’s excellent first half display deteriorated with a series of missed three point shots and turnovers.
Falling for the second time to UG in the UPAC Final adds to the sting of that loss.
