The final also gives UG an opportunity to win for the second time the Division Two of the ABL after winning in 2019. UG will play the finals against Spintex Knights in a best of three contests.
Mr. Eric Agyapong Ankamah, Basketball Coach of the UG Team expressed his delight in securing promotion to Division One of the ABL.
“We have had setbacks in the past which derailed our promotion to D1. With what happened in Kenya in the FASU Games, we were determined to go the extra mile to rewrite history and secure promotion. I am happy the players have made us proud. For me, the hardwork and determination by them has been top notch. This attitude and discipline are what we need going into the Ghana Universities Sports Association Games next month in Kumasi. “
